Featured Artist *DONJO

FancyJLondon ©2015 (All Right Reserved) This blog post is a Bio Feature representing the musician Donjo. 
  

“DONJO” An Australian musician, full of musical talent and born with a great personality. His music is ever changing from the soothing melodies of “One Last Chance”, to latin mixed romantic rhythms like “Mama Mia.” When I first took a listen to his music via Reverbnation, his deep soothing voice reminded me of the late Roy Orbison and his Instruments and Guitar playing hinted towards the sounds of Santana. 

DONJO surprised me with his unique blend of sounds and creative romantic story filled lyrics, that draw you in like a fish hook making you listen all the way to the end. 

It is my extreme pleasure to introduce you to Tony Krajina AKA DONJO…  

FancyJ: “Hello Donjo, this is exciting finally getting to talk with you, can you first tell me about your unique artist’s chosen name?”
Donjo: “This is great, I thank you for this opportunity. Well the name “DONJO” means; “tall tower” apparently, well that is what a friend of mine said it means “Give me the money” in the language of Korean. Actually the name was given to me at the young age of 4 and has stuck with me ever since.”
FancyJ: “I did a little investigating there myself, I found out that your artist name in Korean means; “Huge Castle” your friend might have been teasing you. Never the less, it is an interesting name. Maybe you’re part of royalty? So can you share with us a little bit about yourself?”
  
Donjo: “Lol, maybe! I don’t know where to start talking about one’s self, but I guess I can say, I am 6ft 4 and have been told I’m like a giant teddy bear! My nationality is Italian and I was raised in Australia. I enjoyed writing music at an early age and have continued to do so up to today. I play guitar and other instruments, as well as sing. I have also joined up with a Cousin of mine, we play Italian folk music. We both auditioned together for “Australia’s Got Talent” and Recorded our first debut single titled “Ritorna Qui.”
  

FancyJ: “Wow, you hide a lot within that tall bear body! That is amazing, you and your cousin seem like quite the pair. Would you share your genre preferences?” 

Donjo: “Lol, we are. I havent got a favourite genre of music, I tend to play anything from Mario Lanza to Metallica.” (Links are below, just incase you haven’t heard of the artists Donjo mentioned above) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mario_Lanza) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metallica

FancyJ: “That is quite a wide range in your choices of genres, you could say your pretty flexible. Tell me Donjo, how does music make you feel?”
Donjo: “Music speaks to all, no matter what part of the world we live in. We are amongst an inhabitance of billions of people, who all speak different languages. The one language we all seem understand is music. If you can write a song that touches the heart and soul of just one person, I believe that you have the ability to send a much needed message to someone, somewhere that will change their life in a positive way. 
FancyJ: “I definitely agree with you on that! Music also plays a big role on our emotions, that is why most movies, commercials, and theater use music to intensify the story line. Making us blubber like babies.” 
Donjo: “Lol, yes that is true! 
FancyJ: “So, speaking of emotions, what inspires you to write a new song or record new music?” 
Donjo: “Well that is easy for me, because, I just love music and every time I go to the studio, my body feels goosebumps all over with just the anticipation and excitement of it! To keep me going strong, I fuel myself with heaps of coffee, water as well.”
  

FancyJ: “That sounds like me! Donjo, can you tell me about your music and your goals for the future?”
Donjo: “Sure, I know not every one would find my music style there cup of tea, but I enjoy writing, recording, and producing it. I think that every talented artist out there has a big dream behind their music. My dream is to be able to produce a song for a Motion Picture, that would be a dream come true. Some of my titles, Such as “Until the End” my personal favorite was recorded back in 1999. Then I went on to write “Elizabeth” following shortly after I wrote the “Maze” in 2014. Over the years I have written from my heart, about my life, and my emotions in hope that maybe someone out there may understand my inner thoughts, that I pour into my all my music. Here is a little something I wrote to explain.” 
“Every note is a breath 

  Every Chord is a Word 

  Every Chorus is a Day 

  Every song is a Year 

  Every album is… 

  Someone’s story to tell.” -Donjo

FancyJ: “You are getting me emotional over here, that is beautiful. I really enjoyed our chat and hope we continue to make changes in the hearts of many throughout the world together. Would you like to send out a few, Thank you’s?”

Donjo: “Yes, that would be awesome! First of all, I cannot Thank You enough FancyJ London for all you are doing to support me and my music, you have made my dreams come true. Thank You very much to “ALL” musicians, singer/songwriters, composers, artists, and many more out there. Thanks to my family, friends! Thank You all for taking the time to read this and for just being you! 
FancyJ: “Thank you Donjo! Know that I will be here to support anyway I can. Who knows we might be able to collaborate on something in the future. Welcome to the featured stars family.

Featured Artist~ JANANI

 FancyJLondon ©2015 All Rights Reserved
This blog post is a bio feature representing the Alternative Rock Band JANANI  
 JANANI is an alternative rock band from Orlando, Florida. The band was formed by Janani Vaidyanathan and Erick Campos in January of 2011. In early 2014, JANANI released their very first extended play titled, Three Step System EP. The Three Step System EP was produced by Brett Hestla, former member of Creed. 

  
  The EP spawned moderate success for the band, most notably with their hit single, “Where Was I?”. Kat Coffin of Examiner.com wrote, “Songs don’t get much catchier than ‘Where Was I.’ JANANI’s spunky vocals are full of attitude as they cascade over a steady walking blues rhythm…” and “[Janani’s] strong voice takes lyrical delivery beyond heartfelt to a more character driven place conveying toughness, anger, bitterness, passion and a host of other feelings…”. 

  JANANI released their hit single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), in May of 2015. Shortly after it’s release, the single won the Akademia Award for Best Alternative Rock song. ExposedVocals.com wrote, “[Run (Pick Up The Gun)’s] killer chorus latches itself in your memory after the first listen. It’s a well-crafted song that acts as a wonderful homage to the classic rock sound but also just a good piece of songwriting in itself.” 

  
Their music has been heard on radio stations such as CKCU 93.1 FM in Ottawa, Canada, KISS 104.7 FM and Orlando’s own XL 106.7 FM. It has also been featured in DIRECTTV’s documentary, Gone Until December. JANANI’s latest single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), will be the theme song of the upcoming television series, Hit Women.

     

  From over two-hundred competing bands, JANANI was selected to compete in the top 8 for the Hard Rock Rising Orlando competition, where they performed in front of a panel of judges including Chris Kirkpatrick of NSYNC. Of over 70 acts in the Tampa Bay Acoustic Music Festival at the Hard Rock Cafe Tampa, JANANI walked away as one of five bands selected to be a Hard Rock Energy Ambassador.

  
  JANANI is currently number 1 on ReverbNation Alternative Orlando charts and collectively has over 36,000 fans spanning over 5 different social networks.

  
SHOUTOUT Straight from JANANI ~ Sending big love ❤️ to our Manager Ranelle Golden, all our fans, and of course FancyJ London, YOU ROCK!
Thank you, JANANI …..OH, by the way I am a major fan myself! ~FancyJ

Featured Author “Hiraeth Phoenix”

 FancyJLondon ©2015 (All Rights Reserved) This Blog post is a Bio Feature representing: Hiraeth Phoenix Author, Writer and Poet.
Hiraeth (n.) – a homesickness, tinged with grief or sadness over the lost or departed. It is a mixture of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness, or an earnest desire for the past.

 Hiraeth writes about the longings of the heart. A sensitive, sensory soul, she has been writing as a coping mechanism since she was twelve. As a teenager her poetry won several awards and was published in anthologies.

 Often raw, straight-to-the-point, her writing is stripped down, bare and layered with emotion.

 Her debut novel, Hiraeth Phoenix, was published on Amazon in March 2015. It is the culmination of a year of writing and sharing on her blog and Facebook page. 

  
 

 Hiraeth Phoenix tells the story of a young couple’s relationship by exploring each person’s version of events. It begins with Phoenix, who is in shock and anger following Hiraeth’s sudden departure with no plausible explanation, apart from her realization that they are no longer growing together, expressed in her poetic style. At the end of the first half of the novel, the reader sympathises with him and finds it difficult not to judge Hiraeth for her seemingly selfish behaviour. However, in the second half Hiraeth has a chance to explain herself, to explore the cavities of her soul, her sensitivity. The novel takes the reader on a journey through the heartbreak of a break up, a divorce, the unexpected challenges, the loss that follows, but also the renewal and beauty of second chances. And at the end, it beckons, if you had that chance to see both sides of the story, would it change your behaviour, your ultimate choice?  

  Some reviews of the book are available on her website.
All characters in the novel are entirely imaginary and any resemblance to persons living or dead or actual events is purely coincidental.

 The novel is available on Amazon Kindle here:

http://www.amazon.com/Hiraeth-Phoenix-ebook/dp/B00UR5415S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426584456&sr=8-1&keywords=hiraeth+phoenix

 

 Readers who are interested in reviewing the novel are welcome to contact Hiraeth directly for a complimentary copy.

 Hiraeth is passionate about women’s causes and the fight against ending violence against women and children. The theme of not loving another at the expense of oneself is a recurring one in her poetry. When she isn’t exploring fabric of her soul, Hiraeth likes surfing and gardening.
