NENAD BACH - CITIZEN OF THE WORLD
Nenad is a recording artist, composer, and performer who has
recorded for Sony, Polygram and many other labels. Two of his albums reached
No. 1 in Europe, and to date he has sold over one million records. In addition,
he has performed all over the world with a wide range of artists, including
Luciano Pavarotti, Bono & The Edge (U2), Brian Eno, Indigo Girls, Richie
Havens, Garth Hudson & Rick Danko (The Band), Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead),
Martin Sheen, Michael York, John Malkovich, Ellen Burstyn, and many more. He
performed at Woodstock '94, and in 1998 he made a compilation album with Bruce
Springsteen, Leonard Cohen and Allen Ginsberg. In March 1999, he opened the
Miss Universe pageant in Europe with his new song "Miss Universe."
Nenad also writes and records music for film and theater. He has scored many
features and short films. One such project was "King of Cool," a biopic
about the life of Steve McQueen, which premiered on American Movie Classics
(AMC), to over 65 million households. Another was "Life beyond Timothy
Leary". Subsequently, Nenad scored the Mladen Juran film "Transatlantic",
which was the Croatian entry for consideration as Best Foreign Film in the 1999
Academy Awards. Also, he scored a new film directed by Burt Young called "Murder
on Mott Street", "The Making and the meaning of We Are Family"
film by Danny Schechter in 2002., "Justice" by Evan Oppenheimer in
2003, "Freedom from Despair" by Brenda Brkusic in 2004. At the present
time Nenad is scoring a new film called "Lost Dogs" by talented duo:
director Roger Majkowski and producer Michael Fix.
Finally, Nenad is also a record producer with a special interest
in documenting the fascinating but little-known musical traditions of his homeland,
Croatia. His most recent work includes the production of three new a cappella
albums: "Fire on the Sea," by Klapa Fortunal; "Following the
Cross," a collection of Lenten chants based on 600-year-old Gregorian Chants
never previously recorded; and just released "Novaljo, Novaljo," by
Klapa Navalia. Nenad's work and his life story have been featured on all the
major US TV networks (CBS, ABC, NBC), on CNN, on Sky Channel, and on TV channels
in Russia, France, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Spain, Japan, and many other
countries. Press coverage has been similarly widespread, ranging from The New
York Times to Billboard, from The Washington Post to Corriere Della Sera, and
from The Boston Globe to the New York Daily News. Nenad's most recent solo record
is "Thousand Years of Peace" which will be released in 2001. The album
was recorded in Nenad's own recording studio, which he also uses for his scoring
and production work and which was designed to accommodate anything from a cappella
vocals to rock and roll to symphonic orchestras on a location.
He is currently in preproduction for a new solo album, which
is due for release at the end of 2005. Nenad sang in the new recordings of "We
Are Family" benefit for the Sept. 11th fund as well as scored the film
"The Making and the Meaning of We Are Family". His label just signed
a contract for the worldwide promotion and distribution of "The Pharos
Cantors" (Glagolitic Chants based on Gregorian Chants). He also recently
completed work as a language consultant for the literature and film project
for all four of the Harry Potter books. Through his singing and songwriting
Nenad's goal is to spread the message of joy and universal peace.
