What is my goal?

My goal is to make a CD capturing the essence of who I am, exactly the way I am, right here and now. A CD that will bring together the diversity of artistic influences that have surrounded me all my life. I compose my songs at the piano, and I find inspiration in the prose and poetry of various authors.

My personal journey

I've been singing since childhood. I was a member of the Bambini di Praga children's choir and I also sang with the Kühn Mixed Choir for some time. I've had my own country folk music band and a jazz band, too. But fulfilling my vision of making music on a professional level only became possible after I started to study at the specialized jazz department of the Conservatory of Jaroslav Ježek in Prague. Since then I've worked with many bands and undertaken many projects. The closest to my heart, as well as the most successful, has been the vocal ensemble Skety, which I founded, and which embarked and has continued on its own unique musical journey. Outside of Skety, I've been busy teaching singing at the Conservatory of Jan Deyl in Prague, am often featured as a guest with the Jazz Dock Orchestra or Orchestr Berg (a modern classical ensemble) and am also busy with my newly formed choir Ego Singers and other smaller projects. Now the time has come for me to develop a project about my own music and record my own songs. I've invited some of the best players from several countries who are close to me not only on a musical but also on a personal level. I hope that the best part of me will come out in the essence of this CD. You can listen to a live recording on Soundcloud. My compositions will appear on the CD in carefully made arrangements, some of which are my own while for others I’ve also collaborated with composers and jazz musicians including Petr Wajsar, Jan Jirucha, Petr Kalfus and Andy Schofield (of the Jazz Dock Orchestra).

Why am I doing this?

Composing my own music and immersing myself in creating something original has been the most fulfilling musical experience of my life. To make one's own CD is an absolute must for a musician since it is one of the main ways to become better known. For a musician, it serves far better than a business card. But at the same time, it is a costly undertaking for an independent artist. Since the CDs in their physical form are sold almost exclusively at concerts, the artist invests without any hope of financial return. That's why I've decided to call on you - my friends, fans and also all of you unknown philanthropists and potential sponsors - to help me finance and bring into being an outstanding project of original music without any limitations.
