Born in 1994 (Czech Republic), Michał is an aspiring young jazz drummer currently studying in Austria. He is a member of several notable bands (Purple is the Color, Harry Sokal and others) and is actively performing on the Austrian and Czech music scene.
Michał has garnered a top recognition at various international jazz competitions. In 2015, he won a prize for the ”Best Soloist” within European Jazz Competition in the Netherlands. He has also won an “individual award” in the international competition at the Krokus Jazz Festival as well as many other awards and prizes. Recently, Michał has been featured as the drummer of the month in Austrian drum-magazine “Backbeat”. After being accepted at Anton Brückner Privatuniveristät in Linz, Michał began studying with New Orleans drummer Jeffrey Boudreaux (Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Randy Brecker, Rick Margitza, Toots Thielemans, Alexandre Desplat, and many others) who became his drum teacher and life mentor. His unique approach to learning had not only a strong influence on Michał’s drumming but also had broadened his musical horizons. During the second year of studying at ABPU, Michał was invited to work with famous Austrian jazz saxophonist Harry Sokal (Art Farmer, Joe Zawinul, Vienna Art Orchestra) with whom he recorded a CD “I Remember Art” which was nominated for the prestigious “German Record Critics’ Award”.
