  • STORY:

    DREAM


    Imagine having an idea You can't ignore
    & have to go follow no matter what. Sounds familiar?
    This story is exactly the case, let me begin:

    A young boy decided he wanted to be famous singer.
    He started imagining being on stage & singing in front of thousands of people.
    That feeling while being there was too amazing to describe. Pure joy!

    From then on - he fell in love with this vision.
    Once he gathered enough courage, he shouted:
    ''Let's make this happen!''

    JOURNEY

    A young boy finds himself singing in a glee.
    But - this is not an ordinary choir. It is accompanied by full music band:
    pianist, guitarist, bass player & drummer.

    ''It's a good start'' says young boy ''but this won't get me where I want to be...
    I must figure-out a way how to get to the stage & sing in front of a huge crowd.''

    Suddenly he has an idea: ''Let's learn to play an instrument & sneak into a band.''
    Because this way I can learn music-making process & figure-out how to compose.
    And - most importantly - I can try to work-up the courage to start singing!''

    LEARNING


    ''Seems like bass guitar is the easiest instrument to play. Let's try it.''
    A young boy learns to play it quite easily. Then he joins a band & thinks to himself:
    ''Hmm - this was so easy to learn - maybe I can try other instruments, too!''

    Step-by-step he learns to play bass guitar, drums, keyboards & guitar.
    Because he is getting better with every instrument - soon he is asked to
    join many bands - as bass player, guitarist, pianist or drummer.

    Finally - he works-up a courage to sing! First - as back up vocalist.
    But then he starts singing on his own - what a feeling!


    DECISION

    ''Everything's going great - except 1 thing: No one around is trying to get to that stage with me.
    Everybody's busy going to school, looking for job & figuring out what to do if the music career won't work-out.
    Is my dream way out of the line? That can't be true - because the vision being on stage is so vivid.

    It is more real to me than anything else I've experienced - ever.
    If I stay with these people who are not willing to fight for their dreams - soon I'll get caught-up in their
    way of life.

    Now I have 2 choices:
    1. To become sad & grumpy, boring & resentful person with no meaning of life...
    2. Or to become the person I saw at the beginning - on stage singing for many-thousands of people!'' - concluded young boy.


    DREAM COME TRUE?

    A Young boy saw no hope with his fellow musicians.
    He packed his stuff and departed!

    As he familiarized with new place, learned new language & sorted himself out - the vision returned to him full-force!
    It was so strong that he took all the rent money he had & bought himself drums, guitar, bass guitar, microphone & recording machine.
    In 5 days he recorded complete songs with lyrics, music, sing & playing all instruments!

    After that - he had to sell all the equipment to pay for the rent.
    It was painful but it had to be done...


    YOU

    ...and this is a part where You come into view. Yes - You! I have many stories to tell - but this one is the most important story of my life.
    This story can be finished - it can have a happy ending. Can You finish the story?
    Seriously - I'm asking You - the reader of this: Can You & will You finish the story?

    Because the last part of the story is not written, yet. For the final part - I need You & I need Your help.
    Imagine what will happen if this story is finished. How many people will get inspired to do things in life they are afraid of?
    Maybe - it will also re-ignite You & Your dreams.

    Help this ''young boy'' to stop relying on people without dreams. He is asking for help from people who still believe. Do You still believe?

If You want the dream to come true - here are all the details:


BRIEF INTRODUCTION

Hi, this is Johnny. I sing, compose songs, write lyrics & play multiple instruments.

I love to make complete songs by myself old-fashion style by playing drums, keyboards, bass guitar & guitar. So what you hear is made completely by 1 person - tip to toe - from singing through lyrics to drums.

Making songs this way is an absolute pleasure for me. It makes me totally happy & I really don't have a clue why, sorry. I just love being able to create music this way.

At the same time - it's very time/money consuming for one person to commit to a work & expenses of an entire 5-piece rock band, as you can imagine. So, if you like what you hear - I just wanna let you know 2 things:

1. All the songs I made so far were finished literally "on the go", meaning they were made in a couple of hours with little to no time to rehearse & with low quality instruments & equipment.

2. My dream is to be able to make complete songs with:
- good quality music instruments and equipment
- plenty of time for rehearsal & recording.

This is not just for the pleasure of doing what I love doing the most - but also for the final result - which I believe will be one of the best music album you will ever hear. Ever :)
