"Singing songs is the same job as any other, if not
more demanding: craft as a necessary complement to talent
cannot be cheated. You learn it in small doses."
(Edith Piaf)

I was born in 1981, and my early fascination of music is closely connected to my hometown Ostrava. My first performance took place in the courtyards of our building estate where, with a skipping rope in hand, I spontaneously began as "lead singer". Music School was a musical paradise for me - although I very wanted to play the piano, I started playing the flute, then continued playing the guitar and attending choir. My guitar teacher motivated me to sing more actively and this was most rewarding. I graduated solo singing in 2007 under the supervision of Mrs. Eva Wojaczková. The human voice has a scope similar to the clarinet, which has a wonderful sound, so I decided to play it.

In the years 2003-2008 I sang with a local band called Café Industrial. My friend and pianist Eva Mitáčková inspired me to sing French songs. She was the one with whom we rehearsed the first song from the repertoire of Edith Piaf. Accordionist Tomáš Damec joined our Lecoclico musical duo, which we created in 2006, whose repertoire expanded to include songs of Jacques Brel and Charles Aznavour (and many other stars of French music).

Another important turning point in my life and career was meeting Vladivojna la Chia, with whom I have been cooperating as a vocalist since 2008. I also sing in a musical project called The Tombs of Lovers and other Pastimes.

In November 2011 I had the opportunity to go to Split to compare my singing skills in the International Competition in the Interpretation of the French Chanson - and this singing "duel" brought me victory. This year I was a juror in the regional round of the competition and I personally know very well that to determine leadership in an artistic and creative field is very subjective.

In 2012, I appeared at the Festival in the streets, organized within the international music festival Colours of Ostrava. My interpretation of songs from the repertoire of Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Mireulle Mathieu and other French-speaking artists people could also be heard in Ostrava´s Parník Club or in the Puppet Theatre at a double concert with French singer Joel Bros. I also performed in the famous Stará pekárna Club (Brno), Czech Radio Ostrava at a live evening composition named CZinci, where one of the guests was Michal Horáček (a well-known Czech song writer) and in many other places in the Czech Republic. In addition to radio, I appeared in a number of television shows such as Dobré ráno, kultura.cz.

Music makes me feel good, it makes me dance, sing, it touches me, but sometimes it can be distracting. However, it always provokes me and incites emotions. Singing gives me a sense of joy and freedom of expression. In my opinion, voice is a unique way to capture feelings and states, also because it is so intrinsically linked with the actual performer. I have met and still meet many interesting, talented musicians who inspire me and make it easier for me to find my own path to music. Any such meeting is an exciting experience for me, which is eventually reflected in my work (such as Rudy Horvat, Joel Bros, Jan Kuchař, Martin Bala and others.)
