Rajko

BandPopSinger/Songwriter

A review once described me as 'a blend of Damian Rice and Pearl Jam'. Add a folk element and I suppose that's close. I’m a singer songwriter who writes from the heart: songs about life that i hope might reach or touch whoever hears them.

Biography

Having discovered songwriting in his late teens, Rajko has spent the last decade writing heartfelt and compelling music and entertaining all he meets with his creative and spontaneous performances. On his adventures in Discovery channel's Last One Standing, Rajko took a guitar to all 12tribes, often teaching a local villager to play, then leaving behind the guitar on his departure. Having headlined at some of London's top acoustic venues, Rajko is a seasoned performer and goes nowhere without his guitar. He is about to release his first independently produced Album and is currently touring to promote this album at venues in the UK, Europe and the USA. Rajko recently returned from Serbia and Montenegro where he performed on national television and at the InterART Festival in Belgrade.

Last One Standing gave Rajko an opportunity to experience the music of the world and gain inspriation for his own songwriting. "Places like Zululand where the voices of tribesmen were the most stirring thing I've ever heard, and Papua New Guinea where the local bamboo band was just pure postive energy...these things opened up my mind."

Rajko's musical influences:
Cat Stevens, Jim Croce, Paul Weller, U2

Lyrics

Time

Written By: Rajko Radovic

verse1)
Roll back your shoulders, don't you hide your face
If you're gonna fight the feeling, do it on another day
'cause like a true friend said, the world is at your door
but like my grandfather said 'I just want a little more'

verse2)
Don't disbelieve me just 'cause i don't shout,
Words can be strong but actions are a hundred times as loud
And like a true friend said, the world is at your door
But just like my father says 'I still want a little more'

chorus)
So Turn the Pages,
don't assume you've read this book before .
I'm not an open page,
and i can feel a rage just like yours...

...but I'm too young, and life's too short
and ohhh I just want a little more.

middle 8)
I've been loved and I've been wrong and I was hurting far too long. But now i feel love and i feel strong and i'm not alone anymore

verse 3)
Roll back your shoulders, don;t you just survive
Breathe in colour, its a different way of life.
And like a true friend said, the world is at your door
But like my grandfather said, on his death-bed
"I just want a little more"...



Deja Vu

Written By: Rajko Rdovic

I turn on the light
This morning it’s so dark outside,
and its bloody cold – but that’s alright!
I wake my body up
Today is gonna be non-stop
And like everyone else I just…

Do do do do do do do….all the things I do
in a day day day day day day day….whatver comes my way
I just do do do do do do do….all the things I do
But where’s it going….where have I gone?

(chorus)
I’m moving in circles
Running rings around the same old things
And all that I do feels like Déjà vu
I’m a cog in the wheel and everyone knows how that feels…cos that’s life

Verse 2
I turn on the light
Somehow I can’t sleep tonight
And I’m all alone but that’s alright
I read something I wrote
About a girl I used to know,
But and used to like, but time goes by… I just

Do do do do do do do….all the things I do
in a Day day day day day day day….whatver comes my way
I just do do do do do do do….all the things I do
But where’s it going….where have I gone?

Chorus
