The story of Dime`s biography is anything but stereotypical. His path has been far from conventional, without the guidelines secured by a typical music curriculum or readily recognisable stages at the outset of his musical progress. He’s followed a path free of any mystification about professional discipline, free of the usual tales or anecdotes. Dime`s path has, indeed, been a long, unconventional and often difficult advance, one offset by his unfaltering faith in himself and his music, always fuelled by his insatiable passion for singing. This is a story of an artist, who, in spite of discovering his talent and urge to perform relatively late in life, he passionately embraced that talent, rapidly developed it, and remained ever faithful to it.

Before devoting himself entirely to music, Dime was engaged in a wide range of activities, from the exciting and challenging to the mundane and conventional: sometimes driven to stage as a youth, delving into the world of drama as an actor (with several minor roles as a professional actor in major Belgrade theatres), also working as a salesman and bar tender, everything culminating in a somewhat successful career in insurance. Dime`s years of professional wandering were not, however, without consequence: combined with a natural musical talent, great strength as a performer as well as a technique developed through advanced voice training, this period gave flavour to Dime`s performance – a rich life experience and appreciation of human nature colouring Dime`s voice with profound sensitivity and complex emotion.

Goran’s first professional concert was reprised twice and his foreign debut happened the same year in Paris, marking the beginning of a solid career. Dime impressed audiences at festivals and concerts all over Europe and in Canada. His first concert at The Glenn Gould auditorium in Toronto (9.9.2006) was well received by the Neapolitan music aficionados, and the premiere of Francesco Paolo Tosti’s program at the same concert hall in 2011 cemented this repertoire as his trademark. Goran’s musicality, expression and warmth of voice, along with precise choice of mentors and professors (Gaetano Bardini, Italy, Radmila Smiljanic, Biserka Cvejic and Olivera Jovanovic, Serbia), left no one surprised at his initial successes.

Even though Goran’s first attempt at pop music in now far 2003 resulted in the first prize for the “Duet of the year” at the pop music festival in Herceg Novi (Montenegro), he started to experiment with the new genre years later, thanks to the push from classic pop producers (E. Ghenassia). Goran is the first classically trained tenor who has shot pop music videos in Serbia and simultaneously filled the most prestigious Belgrade concert hall Kolarac twice (2011, 2012) with his opera program.

Classical concerts in Montenegro, Canada and Serbia marked his career for the year 2013, accompanied by ventures into the pop music world. The first months of his new life in Canada brought Goran the biggest reward for all his hard work and the continuous perfecting of his craft: he celebrated his 10-year career milestone with the fourth concert in Toronto and began his most important new project, a studio recording of his first full CD with timeless pop classics.

Dime’s non stereotypical professional path continues to develop with great care and constant attention to detail. It is impressive to hear a tenor who successfully performs in both genres, staying resolutely loyal to bel canto values, and with fascinating musicality, maintains the control of his tone quality, volume and superior diction.

The current challenge for Goran, recording his first studio pop album, coincides with exciting news in his private life. Received warmly on North American soil, Dime strives to grab this opportunity as the turning point of his professional career. As always, he stays true to the highly set bars for his artistic goals. Dime’ s incredible energy and clear focus on his goals guarantee many more stellar moments in his further endeavors.
