Aleksandra Kovač (Aлександра Ковач) is a singer, songwriter, arranger, and producer from Serbia. She began to play the piano and write and perform her music at the age of 15, which is also when she and her younger sister, Kristina, formed the band K2 and signed their first contract with a management company from London, Mismanagement (clients include Supertramp, Rod Steward and Chris De Burgh). They went to London to support Labi Sifre on tour, and performed in many famous clubs in London, such as 'Mean Fiddler', 'The Orange', and 'Tea Room des Artistes'. In 1993, Errol Brown (the former singer of Hot Chocolate) booked Aleksandra and Kristina as an opening act and as backing vocals on his tour, after hearing them perform at Mean Fiddler. After the tour, Aleksandra began a collaboration with New Underground, a team of young producers from Manchester, which resulted in several songs that were a mix of pop and R&B. With this K2 received positive reactions from major record labels - Sony 2, Polydor, and Warner Bros. Over the next five years, Aleksandra and Kristina worked with many important names from the music industry, such as Derek Bramble (composer and producer, worked with Whitney Houston, Nona Gaye) and the composing duo Rod Argent-Peter Van Hook (composed and produced for Genesis, Tanita Tikaram). In 1995, the girls returned to their hometown of Belgrade and, filled with positive energy and creativity, wrote, arranged, produced, and performed their first album which reached number one in the charts.

They successfully promoted this album nationally, and in 1996 they released their second album, A Little Bit of Soul. At the time, these two albums, as well as the videos for the singles, represented something new, original and fresh in Yugoslavia. A year later, Aleksandra and Kristina went to Madrid, Spain, and signed a contact with EMI to release an album for the Spanish market. After successful promotion of the album and a tour, the group returned to Belgrade and stopped working. Aleksandra decided to continue her career, but now not only as a performer and composer, but as an arranger and producer as well. She met a talented young producer and musician, Roman Gorsek (of the group Plejboj), and with him formed the production team RAProduction, that has been succesfully creating music for the past nine years. Aleksandra was asked to work with many performers from Croatia and Bosnia, such as Nina Badric, Ivana Kindl, Jacques Houdek, Deen, Severina, Goran Karan, Boris Novkovic, Vesna Pisarovic, Sandi Cenov, etc.

Aleksandra and Roman also produced the songs and albums for the majority of these performers. In 2001 they began work on the EP "You and Me", which they produced and published. The EP contained four of Aleksandra's soulful, R&B compositions that conveyed her experiences in love and life through a mixture of funk, soul, and two-step. In the same year, Aleksandra and Roman were invited by some of the top world managers to go and present their music and work. They went to Los Angeles and began a collaboration with John Mason, the leading entertainment lawyer in the U.S. Aleksandra has had publishing contracts with companies such as Air Chrysalis Scandinavia, EMI Spain, Croatia Records, and Menart, and she is a member of HDS and HUZIP in Croatia and STIM in Sweden. She has composed music for many stage plays, as well as the score for the TV series Foxes, numerous commercials (Telekom, Grete, Banini), and TV shows. She has released her first solo album, Honey and Milk, and with it, again proved herself as a talented singer and songwriter.

It is the best-selling album in Serbia at the moment. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
