Vladimira Krckova

Vladimira Krckova is a Czech singer, composer, songwriter, actress and dancer living in London.

Ms Krckova was exposed to all kinds of music very early in life. Then, at the age of six, started to study accordion and a bit later started to play the piano, too. Her studies of modern dance as well as participation in choirs made her dive very deeply into music in all possible ways.

At the age of 16, she was accepted to study musical and dramatic arts at the Conservatory, Brno, Czechia. Later on, in 2008, she was accepted to study at New School, New York, but her battle with at that time misdiagnosed C-PTSD made her continue her career path in Europe.

In 2004, she created her own one woman show “Voice Monodrama” during an artist residency at Villa Decius in Krakow, Poland. In 2005, she participated as a lead singer on an album “Teba” of a Czech folk music group Cymbelin and performed at Colours of Ostrava, a major international music festival in Czechia.

In 2008 (in Europe), she performed alongside Grammy nominated pianist and composer John Serry Jr.
In 2012, she composed, arranged and produced her jazz, contemporary and classical music influenced album titled “Go for a Rich Man” that was named by leading Czech music critic Lubomir Doruzka “The Most Interesting Music Act Of The Last Several Years”.
In 2015, she wrote, directed and produced her official music video “Your Aura on my Lips”, with creative audio post-production by Michael Riesman (music director of Philip Glass Ensemble, arranger and conductor for David Bowie, Paul Simon, Martin Scorsese)
