Lost And Found (2008)


Internet retailers in MP3:


The best way to get your physical copy is to order via e-mail or visit a concert – we always have one in the pocket… :)

The story of cd:

Some time around 2006 I just couldn‘t stand the need to have the cd of my own original songs. I‘ve had a plenty of demos, dozens of tunes. While we played my song, I couldn‘t recommend any cd to obtain. I‘ve been recording since my childhood and since the single „Přísahám (I Swear To You)“ in 2001 there was a search for a sponsor, producer, manager, because the amount of money to record it was huge and I didn‘t have it. Many of „sponsors“ appeared…and dissapeared and then I realized, that the searching would be forever and nothing would have changed.

So I decided to take it in my own hands and found myself a job as the hotel receptionist and the kind of „maid for an job“. Meanwhile I was collecting the material, walked around varoius studios and publishers, and searched for the right sound. I collected the money for 2 years.

In 2007 the first single appeared and got me to the International Festival Carpathia. In fall 2008 I finished the whole album. I had no clue about music production and how the things are made in the professional studio. I did everything just instinctively and recorded most of it. Martin Dolejš and Michal Šenbauer assisted me and gave me a hand. Meanwhile I persuaded one publisher, who-at least-managed the codes, making of physical copies, etc. I created some cover, Zuzana Mašková made it for print and later, Jan Tománek of AAA Studio did the more-attractive update version. The album was lucky to have great Godfathers. And whio knows? Maybe I‘ll get the investment back some day. But the biggest value was, that I relieved. From then on, I could say:“This is me, this is what I write this is what I did… I‘ve achieved my debute… Cd had it‘s own splendid Godfathers – Peter Freestone whom I became friend with at the common tour in Hungary (this is another story) and Petr Janda, who belongs to Czech music icons.

Sadly, the Czech media mostly ignored it. I‘ve been in contact with the Music News Nashville in USA nad they wrote me once: „As soon as you have the complete album, feel free to send it to us“… So I did. And some time after they did a great review. Then, the Slovakian MusicServer and other US servers followed (you can find it at the press section). While it wasn‘t big breakthrough, it still makes me feel good, that people who discovered it, liked it. I love the songs of it till nowadays and I‘m glad I‘m not alone. The rest is history…
