Tunc Arkan was born in Istanbul on 26th of July 1969 as the oldest of two children. His interest in music developed at a young age and continued all his life. His first stage experience was during his high school years as a student of Istanbul Alman Lisesi, the German High School in Istanbul. During this time he and his friends founded the band “Double Po” and participated in many concerts, after which he was regarded as a promising young talent in the music world.
In 2008 Tunc returned to the music business following a 14-year break with “Crystal Clear”, a band he created with his friends Mert Topel, Özgür Yenilmez, Ataç Ülker and Yunus Bilge Karay. Later they changed the name of the band to “Wax” and handed over the management to the eponym of the band, Nikki Wild. Until today Tunc has performed together with various musicians such as HakanŞavklı, HakanPamukçu, KorayAlarslan, ErhanAkhan and Emre Şen, presenting their audience with the best pieces of Progressive Rock.
Today Tunc, who is working on his own, personal project, is being accompanied by Hakan Şavklı (guitar) and Hakan Pamukçu (drums) from “Wax” as well as by Gökhan Gültekin (keyboards) and Erdinç Ayar (bass) from the renowned “Yusuf Uğurer Band”.
In his songs he interprets his country’s cultural elements in a progressive rock style. Tunc Arkan has a university degree and speaks English, German and a fair level of Romanian.
