I was very bright-eyed and bushy tailed when I moved there. It’s kinda wild out there and it was a learning process, taking the good with the bad.” birthday released the debut track this past October.

Hailing from Oakland, California birthday is the project formed by Duran Visek, a multi-instrumentalist, who grew up in a musical household. He got his start on the drums at the age of 10, guided by his father who was the drummer of a punk band in the 80s. Later on, after picking up the guitar and moving to Connecticut, he started his first band at the age of 13-years-old, the pop-rock outfit Kicking Daisies. No stranger to the spotlight, he began performing in front of crowds across the country and fell in love with the way he could lose himself in the music when he took the stage. After picking up and moving to Oakland in 2015 to continue to pursue his dreams as a musician, Duran created his best project to-date, birthday. Now, at the age of 23, birthday is gearing up to show the world what he’s made of with the release of his forthcoming debut EP.
