Denis Aleric


Born to rock – Denis Aleric found his passion for music at the young age of 6. In the traditional yet modern city, Split, Croatia, was where he was born. At the age of 16, Denis began playing the guitar for rock and heavy metal bands such as Pandora, Destruction and Essence. After joining the Hare Krishna movement in 1994, Denis expanded his musical talents by playing the harmonium and Indian drum. After 1999, he left Croatia to travel as a monk to countries such as Switzerland, Germany, India, Italy, Austria, Poland and Romania. During this time, Denis may have given up many things but music was definitely not one of them. In fact, his music just became more diverse and original. Spending 14 years of his life in London, Denis created instrumental songs such as Day Of Joy, Memories, Get Out, amongst many others. He also created some sound tracks for the Bhaktivedanta Player’s Ramayana and then later recorded the hip hop album When A Soul Acknowledges. Now Denis lives with his family in Leicester, England where he has just created his new instrumental, Perfect Forever. All of his songs are composed, produced, mixed and mastered by himself and his motivation and passion for creating new songs shows real dedication and love for music.






What is music to you? What does it give you?

I've always enjoyed recording music. Since I was a kid I used to experiment recording guitar on the tape recorder, than play it back and record another guitar using other tape recorder, it was endlessly satisfying feeling :) Simply put, I just love music.

What is your music dream?

Although my aim is to get heard and known to masses,playing tours is not my thing. I would rather stay behind the scene, say in the recording studio and record different bands with different styles of music as well as my own music. I would make music for the movies, adverts, radio etc..

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

First I would put stop to all the suffering in the world, wars, hunger... by making everyone believe that we are all here for love and respect too. After that it would have been paradise on earth :))

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Sweet Child o Mine by GNR :)

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I just love old GNR's songs,those really put me in a good mood and gives me energy and motivation. But there are tons of other bands that i like too. Metallica, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi to name a few.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

As an Instrumentalist, I just want listener to get hooked by the tune. That's all really. Than it's on listeners to imagine any sorts of messages that my music sends. My music is usually mellow, easy listening, positive and emotional, so I guess it would bring positive thoughts in people's minds and make them do something good, some good act that can bring smiles :)

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I've performed a lot in front of an audience, not with guitar much, but with the harmonium and singing. It's religious music, indian origin, that nowadays becoming more and more popular especially amongst younger generations. People love to hear it and I love to play it and sing. It is very inspiring :)

What do you think of Drooble?

Glad I've found it!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

That there are only 7 notes in music. But the good news is there is also a lots of hidden notes that comes in between these 7:)) So, basically there is endless possibilities for the new songs but frustrating thing is that all of them would sound like something else so there is a very little room for originality unfortunately.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I think to be original (as much as possible) is the key,also music has to be mixed properly and 100% in tune. Than if music stands out and if does have a catchy beats, there is a good chance of them getting heard in my opinion.
