Yavuz Hilmi ├çetin (25 September 1970 ÔÇô 15 August 2001) was a Turkish musician as well as songwriter and singer in the blues and psychedelic music genres, who gained renown in his native country for the skill and sensitivity of his guitar performances and, in the wake of his suicide at the age of 30, before the release of his highly praised album, Sat─▒l─▒k [For Sale], has achieved a near-iconic posthumous status as a talent lost on the brink of great achievement. Born in the Black Sea port of Samsun, Turkey's 15th largest city and capital of Samsun Province, Yavuz ├çetin spent his early school years traveling through the country's various regions, as his father, journalist Erdal ├çetin, responded to the demands inherent in the profession. In 1984, at the age of 14, the adolescent music enthusiast was already taking blues and rock guitar lessons from guitarist Ahmet Kanneci and, the following year, started learning to master the acoustic guitar and, subsequently, the electric guitar. Before graduating from Istanbul's Haydarpa┼ča High School, he and classmate Ercan Saat├ži who, in later years, became a noted musician as well as sports journalist, entered HEY magazine's music competition and their song, "I Will Cry", became the winning entry.
In 1988, continuing his quest in Istanbul for higher education and advanced musical training, ├çetin began studies at Marmara University's Music Department while earning an income as a musical performer in clubs such as Beyaz Ev [White House] in the port town of Bodrum, where he played in 1989ÔÇô90. In 1991, upon turning 21, he formed, with young musical colleagues Batuhan Mutlugil, Kerim ├çapl─▒ and Sunay ├ľzg├╝r, the musical group, Blue Blues Band. Having married in 1992, Yavuz ├çetin and wife Didem filed for divorce four years later. In that year, 1996, and for the remaining four years of his life, he was also a guitarist at the numerous concerts played by the noted band Mazhar-Fuat-├ľzkan.
He collaborated, as well, on various albums with artists such as Teoman, K─▒ra├ž, Sibel T├╝z├╝n, Soner Ar─▒ca, G├Âksel, Deniz Arcak and Acil Servis. In G├Âksel's hit song "Sab─▒r", he became the first Turkish guitar player to use a talk box. Of particular note is his solo on Deniz Arcak's "B─▒rak─▒n Beni" from the K─▒p─▒r K─▒p─▒r album which, in an illustration of his mastery of the rock and blues guitar tradition, was recorded on the first take after only a couple of rehearsals. It also became the last studio session recording in which he participated.
He was born in Izmir in 1982. He completed his entire education life in this city. Zeki G├╝ner, who started to be interested in music at an early age, took kanun lessons from TRT artist Nihat ─░nce at the age of 8.
Later, he combined the words and sentences that overflowed his heart with the notes and started to write songs. When Izmir was not enough to share his works, he knocked on Istanbul's door. After a period of 3 years, he won the admiration of I┼č─▒n Karaca and settled in Istanbul.
In the album Uyan─▒┼č of I┼č─▒n Karaca, he wrote seven songs, including the song Uyan─▒┼č, which gave the album its name.

In addition, his work "Menek┼čeler K├╝sk├╝n" is also included in the album ÔÇťYeganeÔÇŁ by Erkan G├╝lery├╝z.
The single named Emanet, sung by Yonca Lodi in the television series "Can─▒m Ailem" and whose lyrics and music belongs to Zeki G├╝ner, has achieved a great success and became one of the most downloaded songs in the digital platforms.
Two of his songs, "├ťz├╝m" and "Biz Bu De─čiliz", are featured in Ferhat G├Â├žer's "Biz A┼čk─▒m─▒za Bakal─▒m" album. ÔÇť├ťz├╝mÔÇŁ is among the songs that are broadcast most on the radio lists.
