About me

I started studying the violin at the age of 8 and later picked up the guitar at 12, as a self-taught. By that time I had already been singing all my life and started writing my first songs at the age of 14. I’ve been playing and singing ever since, and have a long experience performing live with several bands for all kinds of events, in the Czech Republic and abroad.

I’ve always been deeply fascinated about Medieval history and music from the Middle-Ages, which has led me quite naturally, over the years, to start playing Medieval instruments as well, and teach myself how to approach this subtle repertoire. In 2006 I founded Elthin, a Czech ensemble specialized in music from the Middle-Ages and Renaissance, with whom  I’ve been performing regularly, mainly in the context of historical festivals or for private events. Besides being the lead singer of Elthin, I play on a medieval lute, a Renaissance lute, a gittern, a medieval vielle, a portative organ and a hurdy gurdy. We have recorded 5 albums so far: “Elthin“ (2006), “Veris Dulcis“ (2009), “Musica Ioculatorum“ (2013), “Rex Histrionum“ (2017) and “Medieval Christmas Songs“, Vol. I“ (2019).

My debut solo album, “Zrání“ – a collection of songs I composed with lyrics by Ludk Schmoll – was released in 2018. I’ve been actively working on different projects these past years, recording cover songs from video games or TV / movie soundtracks. In 2019, I recorded “Copper and Tin“, an album based on songs from the Poldark series, with French cellist Roxane Genot, with whom I co-founded my own recording label (Green Monster Records) the same year. I’m currently working on my second album of Czech original songs and on several projects including video game soundtracks.
