Vlado Janevski with a big concert on March 16, 2019, at Vip Arena Boris Trajkovski.

Vlado Janevski was born on 27 November 1960 in Skopje in Čair where he still lives.  He plays the guitarpiano and drums. He was a member of the popular bands “Tost Sendvich” (1976), “Bon-Ton” (1986), “Fotomodel” (1989) and “Lastovica” (1992). He has participated in a number of festivals in Macedonia and other Ex-Yugoslav countries. He participated in Jugovizija in Belgrade in 1992 and also had revial participations in Belarus on “Slavjanski Bazar in 1994, 1995 and 1996. In Macedonia, he took part in “Interfest” in 1994 where he got the grand prize, and on “Makfest” where got the second prize and the first in 1995. He took place in the first Skopje Fest 1998 with the song Ne Zori, Zoro and won the contest which allowed him to represent Macedonia for the first time in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Ever since the beginning of his solo career Vlado has been writing most of the music and all the lyrics for his songs. Even though he has often been referred to as “the most romantic songwriter and lyricist in the history of macedonian popular music” he described himself as “a mere scribbler of love songs”. The secret of his long-lasting success with the wide audience probably lies in the mystic beauty of his ballads combined with the sensuality of his velvety baritone voice.
