Vanja Sky and her band at Meisenfrei Bluesclub, Bremen DE on 2019-03-27. She was accompanied by Sir Roger Inniss (b), Jimmy Matesic (g, mand) and Hanser Schüler (dr)

24 years old  Vanja was born in Croatia. She left home to join a band in Croatia’s capital. Concerts in Serbia, Slovenia, Germany a her native Croatia allowed her to hone her skills as both a singer and guitarist.
Jump ahead to the year 2017. Faster than she could ever have imagined, Sky is now making a record with some of the biggest names in the blues business. Her first stop is Bessie Blues Studios in Stantonville, Tennessee, the home base of Grammy-winning producer Jim Gaines. There, she records the sizzling, Luther Allison-penned roadhouse blues “Low Down and Dirty” together with fellow guitarists Mike Zito and Bernard Allison. A short time later, she reconvenes with Zito and a cast of experienced session players to record another eleven tunes. The result is her debut Bad Penny – an album of modern electric blues with a straightforward, rock’n’roll attitude. Rory Gallagher is one of her favorite players. Besides the Irish blues-rock legend, Sky cites Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert King as key guitar influences.

She was part of the Blues Caravan 2018 along with Mike Zito and Bernard Allison.



In 2018 she released her awesome album “Bad Penny” on Ruf Records.
