I’m very excited to be releasing my new album, and I want you to be a part of it! The music on my album and everything about it is a reflection of what I did in the last couple of years. It begins with the sounds from the picturesque yet wild island of Cres in Croatia, all the way through my original writing and ending in New York with my arrangements of jazz and Brazilian standards.

From pre-ordering the digital download, to actually playing the music live for you with the band in your home or VIP tickets to Carnegie Hall Album Release Concert, there are a ton of big and small ways to get involved. There are limited edition product bundles, one-of-a-kind-experiences, even earnings that I made from St. Peter Ears shells I found in “my” bay!

Just for pre-ordering a digital download, you’ll get an Access Pass that unlocks bonus content, previews, and a whole lot more. I believe many of you will find something that you like, and if you don’t – I take suggestions!

Jako mi je drago da izdajem novi album, i želim da i vi sudjelujete u tome! Glazba na albumu i sve što je vezano uz njega presjek je onoga što sam radila u posljednjih par godina. Počinje sa zvukovima s prekrasnog ali i divljeg otoka Cresa, preko mojih autorskih pjesama pa sve do mojih aranžmana brazilskih i jazz standarada.

Od “pre-order” narudžbe u digitalnom obliku, pa do koncerta uživo za vas u vašem domu ili VIP karata za koncertnu promociju u Carnegie Hallu, postoji mnogo velikih i malih načina da se uključite. Možete izabrati razne kombinacije u ograničenim količinama npr. od Limited Edition CDa, jedinstvena iskustva, čak i naušnice koje izrađujem od Petrova uha koje sam izronila na “mojoj” plaži!

Samo za pre-order digitalnog downloada, dobit ćete Access Pass koji otključava dodatne sadržaje i još puno toga. Vjerujem da ćete mnogi od vas naći nešto što vam se sviđa, a ako ne nađete – primam sugestije!

These are my favorite shells!

This is how it works: I go diving, and on some occasions, I find them in the sea. They are different sizes so it takes time pair them into two that are similar, and that have the little holes big enough to make them into earnings. Therefore the limited number, they are super special to me.
