Grga Savić (1983) started taking guitar lessons at the age of thirteen, but at the age of fifteen he switched to saxophone. He graduated from the University for Music and performing Arts in Graz and spent some time studying jazz at Carinthian State Conservatory. He is a freelance musician who works on the other side of time. New York, i.e. Brooklyn, has recently become his living space, the place where he constantly learns, listens and observes.
