WHITESNAKE WELCOMES TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA SINGER DINO JELUSICK
Whitesnake has announced the addition of Croatian singer/multi-instrumentalist Dino Jelusick to the group’s ranks. Jelusick is a member of multi-platinum selling band Trans-Siberian Orchestra and was previously part of Dirty Shirley (with George Lynch), Animal Drive and recorded with many others. Jelusick has been singing, touring and recording since the age of five. Other than being a frontman, his main instrument are keyboards but he also plays bass, guitar and drums. He finished music academy and did theatre work.
Frontman David Coverdale says, “I am absolutely delighted to welcome the extremely gifted Dino Jelusick to Whitesnake. We’ve had our eyes and ears on him since we played Zagreb together two years ago. You’re going to love him.”
Jelusick says he has been influenced by Whitesnake and Coverdale from an early age.
“I am beyond honored to be part of one of my favorite bands of all time,” he said. “To get the phone call from David Coverdale is something every singer and musician of my generation can only dream of; it still feels completely surreal. I cannot wait to start hitting the road with Whitesnake and, as the great DC said to me himself, to give a piece of my identity to the sound of this iconic band.”
