Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

My first encounter with music was roughly at five years, when my parents bought me a piano. Thanks to this, I started to sing and participated in local singing competitions, where many times I won. I attended music school (violin and drums) for four years. However, I learn how to play guitar self-taught, start writing lyrics, recording and composing my own songs.

In the future, I’d like to continue with singing, composing, arranging music and collaborate  with other artists.

I don’t have a band. I’m a one man band. I have home recording studio, where I record my tracks and covers. I have skills in mixing, mastering, editing and coloring videos. I do gigs and performance on music evenings and  other events.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

My music genre is Pop-folk, but I love all music genres. Like a singer-songwriter I just want to do some rhythmic and easy singing song, which has power and good vibes. My first idea about this song came at the shower in the gym. Then I continued in the studio and created the song, which you can hear. The concept of the clip is easy. First scene featuring me with my guitar, singing and second scene with the story while the lyrics is easy to follow up in the music video. Simple to understand. That’s it.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

I’m 23 years old singer-songwriter. I am a multi-genre artist. For the last 2 years I try to combine different genres together, especially blending rap with my song and it worked. My ups and downs were 2 years ago, when I had to decide, which music I’ll play. Because I love singing and writing my own music, the choice was clear.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

I’m the music producer of this song. Video director was Martin Vaněk and song was recorded in my home studio by myself. Mixed and mastered by Audio Wizzards. The music video was shot in the city Brno (South Moravian) in the small room. We enjoyed this time and looking forward to next song, which we’ll shot.
