Who am I and how I get here
In our family we all love music and most of us play an instrument and so do I. So as a child I was a member of school choir, I attended music school, played the flute, piano and guitar. I took regularly a part in kids' shows and competitions. And I had one more passion besides - modern dancing … To both these joys I devoted much time. Kids desire and attempts had developed to real work as a professional dancer in the theatre. Dancing and music are obviously inseparable friends.
About 8 years I was a member of a dancing company in several Prague musicals ( The Pyramid and Broadway theatre in Prague ) such as were: “The Grease”, “The Rebels”, “Kleopatra", etc. and later I returned back to music and I was a singer and a pianist in a small group of musicians called “M++” playing Norah Jones revival (2009).
Just much later as an adult I have uncovered my own ability to compose music and let it grow to big joy from composing my own music. And it was like opening the new world of new pleasure. Creating a song is my personal meditation. I never compose having a purpose, unlikely I let the result to find me. Surrounded by music in my head and in the contact with my intuition I am immersed in filling satisfactory state of my mind. Afterwards the routine follows: rehearsal, recording, detailed work.

And, at last, the concert for you - a great moment for me. When I see that the audience have an experience, I am so happy. I have seen joy as well as tears in eyes, closed dreamy eyes, open curious eyes, expressions of expectations, delight, amusement or deep thinking. And I felt we went through something together thanks to music and its lyrics. And that means for me it makes a sense. Because what would be a man for being just on one' s own, alone?
My music and lyrics
My songs could be called pop-chanson with single accompaniment of the piano. With the bits of many tastes: folk, jazz, blues, soul, but above all pop and chanson. I write the lyrics in Czech, English and Slovac, and they are inspired by my personal experience but developed to questions to open themes which concern all of us: such as love, relationships, fantasy, inspiration, knowledge of world and our role here
My concert programme takes an hour and half including a break, I sing about 13 songs. I am an author of all the songs, music, as well as the lyrics and piano arrangements. My music is rather emotional, with intimate ambience and chamber character. I play piano and sing or just sing with my prepared piano arrangements, depends on the technical conditions or situation.

Plans and future
I would like to raise up my music ideas to higher new levels accompanying with more musicians, more instruments or more voices. I can imagine much wider musical arrangement for my songs playing together with more musicians and developing ideas, singing with backing vocals, etc … just what can’t be done in one person. For now I try to make my piano as full and complete as possible to substitute the band voice. I know there is a lot to work on it and much can be improve to get further, but I love music and I make it with passion.
If you are somebody who likes my style and see the potential for growth in it, contact me for a future cooperation either as a manager or a musician.
