Biography

Luka Kužer Nižetić (born August 12, 1983 in Split, Croatia) is a Croatian musician. His debut album Premijera was recorded in 2006. He is best known for his hits “Ponekad poželim” (Sometimes I Wish) and “Proljeće” (Springtime).

Luka is the second child of Tamara and Milo Nižetić. Together with his sister Petra, he grew up in Mertojak, which is part of Split. His parents noticed Luka’s great interest in music at a young age. Consequently, they sent him to nuns for his early music education. A nun, called Cecilia, taught Luka to play the piano. When he was about 11 years old, music professor Mišo Linić started giving Luka lessons in singing and gave him basic knowledge in composing. The opera diva Sanja Erceg–Vrekalo taught him in singing technique. When Luka was about seventeen years old, he composed his first song “Ludi grad” (Oh Crazy Town). The composer Zdenko Runjić included this song in his music festival MHJ 2001. To everybody’s surprise, the young singer won three Silver Seagulls as 2nd prize by the expert jury.

2004 was a stellar year for the young musician. He signed a contract with Menart Records, and published his first album Premijera which included singles “Ne krivi me” (Don’t Blame Me), “Tebi pjevam” (I’m singing to you), “Ponekad poželim” (Sometimes I wish), “Proljeće” (Springtime) and “Meni trebaš ti” (I need you). After his second performance in the song competition Dora in 2005, where he presented his own song “Proljeće” (Springtime), Luka Nižetić became a well known music personality in Croatia. There followed his nomination for the discographic prize Porin (Croatian equivalent of Grammy) in the category as well as a performance in Osijek.
