Demir Demirkan

Demir Demirkan launches his first US solo CD release with his explosive War 3 Trilogy – Part 1 “The Awakening”. In “The Awakening” each song speaks powerfully on its own. Yet the tunes flow into a single statement about the hopes and dangers of our time. “Freedom,” lays out the central theme and defies the rising tide of oppression throughout the world. Over a sizzling funk strut, “Let It Burn” intensifies this message with a righteous anger. “Money Is” bitterly decries the ravages inflicted by materialism and greed. Demirkan acknowledges the temptation to seek peace through a surrender to injustice on “I Conform.” And “Hold On To the Innocence” tenderly measures the toll these furies take on our ability to love.

Since the year 2000 Demirkan has released eight albums, five EPs and singles plus four original film and TV soundtracks. In 2003 Demirkan wrote the words and music of Turkey’s Eurovision Song Contest song “Every Way That I Can” which won first prize, constituting Turkey’s first-ever Eurovision victory. Released throughout Europe, it sold 400,000 copies, rose to the Top 10 in Austria, Belgium, Spain and the U.K., and topped the charts in Greece, Sweden and Turkey.
