Ztracený was born in a small village in the Šumava mountains as Mirek Slodičák. His stage name Ztracený, which translates as “lost”, was also the title of a song on his debut album in 2008 which made him an instant celebrity.

That same year he was voted Newcomer of the Year in the Anděl Music. Today he has eight albums to his name. The latest one, called Original, was released just this year.

With his pleasant melodies and simple lyrics, the singer appeals to a wide range of audiences. He also likes to share moments of his private life with his the public: for example, during his shows at Eden Stadium, he revealed to his fans a video of his secret wedding.
