Music career

Early career

Feridun Düzağaç started his music career by forming a band called "TINI" ("TONE") in Mersin while studying in university. This band was formed in 1988 and Feridun Düzağaç was the vocalist of this band consisting five musicians. Other members of the band were Feridun Düzağaç's schoolmates. The first song that Feridun Düzağaç wrote was "Lavinia" which was a poem originally written by famous Turkish poet Özdemir Asaf. In 1990, Feridun Düzağaç and his 13 schoolmates wrote a book called "İlk Rüzgar" ("The First Wind") which contained many poems. In 1992, he graduated from the university. In November 1994, he released a demo album called "Öğrenci İndirimi" ("Student Discount") which contained songs that he performed when he was studying in university.

Mersin Turkish Municipality in Mediterranean, Turkey

Mersin is a large city and a port on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey. It is part of an interurban agglomeration – the Adana-Mersin Metropolitan Area – and lies on the western part of Çukurova, a geographical, economical, and cultural region. The city was named after the aromatic plant Myrsine in the family Primulaceae, a myrtle that grows in abundance in the area ; the 17th-century traveler Evliya Çelebi wrote that there was also a clan named Mersinoğulları

Professional career

In January 1997, he released his debut official album called "Beni Rahatta Dinleyin" ("Listen to Me in Comfort"). This album contained songs that he wrote when he was bearing arms. He released his second official album called "Köprüden Önce Son Çıkış" ("The Last Exit Before the Bridge") in July 1998.

In 2000, he participated in a compilation album called "Bülent Ortaçgil'e Saygı" ("In Honour of Bülent Ortaçgil") by performing a song called "Sevgi" ("Love"). He released "© Tüm Hakları Yalnızlığıma Aittir" ("© All Rights Reserved to My Loneliness") album in May 2001 and "Orjinal - Alt Yazılı" ("Original - Subtitled") album in 2003. The second one was the most successful album in his career. In August 2004 he released "Uzun Uzun Feridun Düzağaç" ("Long Long Feridun Düzağaç") album which mostly contained concert performances. Through 2004 Feridun Düzağaç appeared in hundreds of concerts.

A compilation album comprises tracks, which may be previously released or unreleased, usually from several separate recordings by either one or several performers. If by one artist, then generally the tracks were not originally intended for release together as a single work, but may be collected together as a greatest hits album or box set. If from several performers, there may be a theme, topic, time period, or genre which links the tracks, or they may have been intended for release as a single work—such as a tribute album. When the tracks are by the same recording artist, the album may be referred to as a retrospective album or an anthology.
