Between 1998 and 2017 he recorded 126 albums for various labels, participated in nearly every important literary-music festival, worked for national radio and other media as a musical connoisseur, and wrote/translated around 70 books as a member of Slovenia’s National Writers’ Association and National Literary Translators Association.

He has translated poems and wrote professional articles and biographies on Alexander Pope, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Kris Kristofferson and many others. He writes musical/literary reviews and articles for many important newspapers and reviews in Slovenia, incl. Delo (Književni listi), Odzven, Nova muska, Glasna, and Literatura.

Wrong dreams
Oh they should’ve been yours
You sleep like a baby, you show no remorse
I’m tossin’ them round, but they keep comin’ back
It’s quiet tonight, and peace is somethin’ I lack

With wrong dreams
They never ask when they enter
They smell like an old fighter when they should’ve been gentler
I’m shooin’ them off, but they turn deaf to my pleas
Well I just don’t know if I can keep it like this

With wrong dreams
And no excuse after all
For gettin’ stuck in narrations just like Robert Duvall
But the deeper the voice, the merrier they are,
And while it’s freezing outside, well it’s colder by far
With wrong dreams
