Czech Next Wave: Episode No. 1 - ALBERT ČERNÝ

Date of event: 24. 9. 2020 Albert Černý found fame at a young age when his first band Charlie Straight won three Czech national Anděl music awards following the release of their debut LP. The vibrant singer-songwriter later formed Lake Malawi; the group’s biggest moment to date was representing the Czech Republic in last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, where they finished a very creditable 11th. In recent times Černý (31) has also been doing some modelling and TV work.

In this laidback and highly entertaining chat, the musician discusses everything from his youth in the very east of the Czech Republic, the source of his highly convincing English accent, his plans to record in Czech for the first time, how lockdown finally allowed him and his girlfriend to spend an extended period together – and his recent discovery of the joys of Czech beer.
