Biography

The jazz singer, Agnieszka Hekiert, has been working with the extraordinary jazz artist Bobby McFerrin since 2009. Her other stage partners include Krzysztof Herdzin, considered by Jazz Forum to be one of the three best jazz pianists in Poland, and the Polish jazz legend Leszek Zadlo.

She is currently the most in-demand vocal coach in Poland because she gives the final polish to the voices of young artists in TV shows like X-Factor (2011 TVN), Poland's Got Talent (2010/2011 TVN), My Camp Rock II (2009 Disney Channel) and Star Academy (2008 Polsat).
Agnieszka is therefore able to combine two of her passions: performing on stage as bandleader during jazz concerts and imparting her knowledge and experience as vocal coach to young talents.
She still gets to work with the best: WeBe3, Rhiannon, Roger Treece and above all Bobby McFerrin, with whom she sang numerous concerts (Vocabularies Project).

Agnieszka has a degree from the jazz and pop department of the music academy in Kattowitz. Her career began in Poland, where she won many prizes at divers festivals. She then worked with well-known stars of the Polish music scene like Krzysztof cieraski, Wiesaw Pieregorólka, Natalia Kukulska, Maryla Rodowicz, Ryszard Rynkowski and Marek Baata.
With the years, her field of activity extended beyond the Polish border. Agnieszka started to perform in both Germany and Austria. This resulted in an ongoing collaboration with the saxophonist Leszek Zadlo, the Bulgarian pianist Konstantin Kostov and the percussionist Nevian Lenkov.
The fruits of this collaboration, which can be found on the 2009 album "European Impressions", are an incredible mixture of Slavonian melancholy and Balkan energy. The virtuosity of Leszek Zadlo is combined with the wonderful and expressive voice of Agnieszka with ease and energetic improvisation.
Agnieszka also writes music and lyrics, creates arrangements, directs a Circle singing choir (like Bobby McFerrin) and holds vocal workshops all around Europe.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung about Agnieszka:
"Unbelievable vocal artistic and phrasing"

... and the Tölzer Kurier:
"Her music is a pleasure for the ears"
"The finest jazz, that one can just not get enough of"
