Touring with his musical dad since the age of 5, Faana began playing guitar at the age of 10, setting up his own band in his mid-teens.
Whilst studying music at Uni in the Czech city of Brno, Faana was touted to join a band in Austria. Seizing the opportunity, Faana quit his studies, and perfected his skills playing in Austria and also in a Beatles tribute band, which saw him tour relentlessly around Europe for over 5 years.
But, the musical freedom and creativity of London was always in his sights, so Faana took flight once again, this time for the UK.
The live circuit well -trodden and two independent albums released, Faana was spotted by scouts at London’s iconic Marquee Records during the pandemic, and instantly snapped up.
Contracts freshly signed, ‘Stop Running’ heralds an exciting fresh impetus on the indie/pop scene – marrying the past with the present to create a captivating sound of the future.
