Opportunities

Andrea Šulcová releases her debut album, "Opportunities", featuring her own songs. Her excellent singing and masterful songwriting are inspired by some of the foremost developments on the American songwriting scene. The twelve original songs and English lyrics, all authored by the young singer herself, draw on contemporary folk and pop music. The album is produced by Petr Ostrouchov who also performs in the accompanying band, alongside musicians associated with Blue Shadows, guitarist Josef Štěpánek, double bassists Jaromír Honzák and Matěj Belko, drummer Martin Novák, and pianist Vít Křišťan, who all participated also on recent albums of Vladimír Mišík and Mirek Kemel. Some of them are members of Andrea’s concert band as well. Andrea started to focus on her own songwriting following her studies of jazz in Prague and Graz and after she established herself on the scene as a sought-after flutist (Concept Art Orchestra). In its own way, the album is her childhood dreams come true. The songs reflect the singer’s very personal and intimate experiences from the last four years in which she fought off a serious disease and had to put her professional career on hold.
