Mirek Kemel

Vlčí stopy

Though he is better known as a caricaturist and author of cartoons (regularly published throughout the last three decades by most of the major Czech daily newspapers), he has alongside developed a very colourful music career which stands miles apart from his work in humour. He has three albums under his belt as singer and songwriter and has authored scores of songs and lyrics on various aspects of the world disclosing his own take on life. In the poetry of his lyrics and the simple melodies of the songs, Kemel comes across as either an introverted solitary performing on the guitar or accordion or as a charismatic frontman of his own band in which actor Vladimír Javorský has also played a central role. Kemel’s new album VLČÍ STOPY (Wolf Trail) originated out of a first-time collaboration with producer Petr Ostrouchov and Blue Shadows band who also have met on Vladimír Mišík’s two latest albums. Besides Ostrouchov, who has co-authored some of the album’s repertoire, it features guitarist Josef Štěpánek, double bassist Jaromír Honzák and drummer Martin Novák, as well as guest-vocalists Vladimír Javorský and Marie Puttnerová. Kemel’s new album brings a collection of authentic songs and uncomplicated stories with are endowed, however, with overreaching meanings and implications, all in a lively and riveting performance by a group of experienced studio musicians.
