Pavla is a Czech singer, songwriter, poet and the boss of Lampion Records. She is a nice person, so: men, behave yourself!
/My name is pronounced [pavla miltsova:] and I was born in Pøíbram, 60 km south of Prague. My first band, The Satori Blues, was formed when I was 17 years old and I played bass guitar for a while.
Then I studied at the Philosophy faculty at Charles University in Prague.. My subjects were Czech, English, Pedagogy and Literature, and I was also taking singing classes at an evening conservatoire and playing concerts with rock and folk bands.
After that I spent a year in Scotland studying linguistics at Strathclyde and Glasgow Universities and taking photographs, which I used for the sleeve of my first album later on. I also started writing songs in English and took part in the Edinburgh Festival again, this time as a musician.
CD "PAVLA MILCOVÁ & TARZAN PEPÉ" - in 1998.
The name Tarzan Pepé comes from one of my songs and means at the same time difficulties and lightness of being. (My life can´t be shattered/ My life is a star on the sky/ It is a Persian carpet/ It´s a scarecrow in the cabbage field/ It is Tarzan Pepé).
The majority of the lyrics on these album are in Czech. The album was first published by Indies Records in 1998, but now I have the copyright and the publishing rights . In 1999 this album was awarded the Czech critics´Yellow Submarine Award.
In 2006 I formed my own recording and publishing company LAMPION RECORDS. I like being the boss of it.
The fourth CD is called THE MENTHOL KING and has been published by LAMPION RECORDS in 2006.
On THE MENTOL KING you can hear a Moravian folk song(Ore ohaj, No.1) and a Slovak folk song (Dobre tomu uhajovi, No.3) among the others. Song No. 2 is called Rosemary and it is about a girl, that tries her best. She sings all the time...
