Article about song Strong in Free Magazine

Their synergetic work has given life to two singles: Ecstasy and Strong!” It has been also featured by Kristall Radio in Milano! Thank you Alessandro for a beautiful article!

Strong as a song of the day

Strong is the song of the day on radio ZW in Poland. The song has been broadcasted also on Radio 101 and Radio Yammat in Croatia, International Vienna Radio, Muzyczne Radio in Poland. The song is featuring Jade Davies.

Music that lifts up and transcends

On Nov. 8th, 2018, I volunteered to play a Community Support concert at the Geriatric home Rodaun in the 23. district in Vienna. The owner and the director of the Geriatric home Rodun, Mrs. Hilde Haeussle and her daughter Alice so warmly welcomed me (the three of us are in the photo taken after the concert) and all three of us had tears as the concert was finished, feeling transcended. My heart was full.
The feelings after the concert were unforgettable and overwhelming for me as well as for my audience there. Some of their residents held their hands as they felt the flood of emotions during my concert, as Hilde and Alice told me afterwards. Some people that usually do not attend concerts there, came alone in the middle of the concert, inside of their wheelchairs, as the sound from the corridors pulled them inside of the concert room.
As I finished playing my song “Aloft”, someone in the audience commented aloud, “this is as good as the magic!”
Alice send me the following note later today that really moved me: “Liebe Antonija! Deine Musik hat die Herzen unserer BewohnerInnen sehr berührt und verzaubert😍. Wir wollen uns bedanken für dieses aussergewöhnliche, feinfühlige und herzliche Konzert.” (Dear Antonija, your music has touched and enchanted the hearts of our residents. We want to thank you for this extraordinary, emotional and heartful concert.)
I thank everyone and I promise to be back at Rodaun next year!

Concert on the island of Lopud

Last weekend I had the honour to play a concert in the great Lafodia Hotel on the beautiful island of Lopud. It was a very special and inspiring atmosphere on the island which I really enjoyed.

Dramatic but happy

I would love to share the feedback with you that I received for my music.

What an AMAZING new album. I absolutely love it! I’ve been listening to it in my car and it is so very beautiful. I can hear the beauty of your soul in the music – so pure is the effect that the music seems to radiate light! I find it very hard to sit still listening to the tracks, they make me want to get up and dance.
Dr. Louisa Allen, New Zealand

I used to listen to it over and over again holding my daughter on my chest. I did this every day for the first few weeks of her life constantly crying of happiness. It felt to me like the perfect description of birth in piano notes. Just like birth, it is dramatic but happy at the same time. Since then it is a song that has always soothed her. She’s nearly two and I still use it to help her go to sleep when she struggles to. It’s magical!
Cristina Cruz, UK

Thank you Cristina & Louisa!

Out now: Life Stories
