Damir Urban is a singer from Rijeka, Croatia, a town that is today well known for its rock scene, where he founded his first band La Bellona as the bassist and main songwriter.

In 1986 Urban was part of another band as a vocalist, Laufer, one that defined the Croatian rock scene of the early 1990s.

Damir Urban released his first solo album in 1996, entitled Otrovna kiša (Poison Rain), to critical and commercial acclaim. The album produced hits such as "Astronaut", but the highlight of his career was yet to follow.
He refused to receive the Porin (Croatia's equivalent to a Grammy) for the album, as it was nominated for best alternative album and Urban believed his album to be a rock album, therefore, he considered he would be stealing a prize from real alternative artists.

Today, he is a member of a band named Urban & 4.

Members: Damir Urban - voice, guitar, Luka Toman - guitar, Sandi Bratonja - bass, acoustic guitar, accordion, Saša Markovski - keyboard, Marko Bradaschia - drumm, percussions.
