Wojciech Myrczek is an award-winning jazz vocalist born in 1987. Since he has been raised in the family of musicians, his musical journey has begun early with learning cello-playing basics. During college he has turned his interests to jazz and graduated from The Academy of Music in Katowice (Poland) in the class of jazz singing. He developed soon remarkable skills in scat improvisation supported by his vivid harmonic imagination. In his music Myrczek refers to both instrumental approach to human voice as well as  crooning tradition.
