About

Born in 1983 in Krakow, Poland, I studied Jazz at the Conservatory in Brussels and graduated from the Conservatory of Luxembourg ("Prix Supérieur").

I played at venues such as the Warsaw Summer Jazz Days (Capitaine Spoko), the Atelier (GTP, Inbetween, Gawlik-Gilis-Hanon), the Kulturfabrik (GTP, Inbetween, Puma!, Polonia Rocks) and the Pop Club (Inbetween), and shared the stage with acts like Living Colour, Krezip, Fabrice Alleman and Philip Catherine among others. 
 
My influences are Deep Purple, Level 42, B 52's, Marcus Miller, Marco Minnemann, Tower Of Power, Kool & The Gang, John Butler Trio and many other great artists.

I have live and studio experience, I love to be challenged & love to play everything (Jazz, Latin, Funk, Soul, R&B, Hip Hop, Rock, Pop, Hard Rock, Polka, House / Techno...).

Currently playing with: Polonia Rocks & INclusion.
Former bands include Slime, Inbetween, Capitaine Spoko, Puma!, Gawlik / Takagi Project, PassKey, Cabolux, Meds, AKA NGL... and many short term projects.
