Piotr Bugzel, was born on December 12,1970 in Poznań. The future vocalist, composer and lyrics writer was raised in a family of musicians. This was a natural way for the kid to be engulfed with music and grow up with the music of Elvis playing in the background and a guitar always at hand. Obviously, this had to impact Piotr's future and made the King his trusty companion in his music and show career.

2011 - The Artists is interviewed in February by the Poznań based Merkury radio station and presents the Polish remake of Elvis' classic In the Ghetto (Pol. Gdzieś tam w Getcie), with lyrics by Stanisław Kaczmarek. Piotr also records a video for the song in February.

2010 - One of the year's notable events was the beginning of collaboration between Piotr and the ROCKIN`MINDS REVIVAL band, an ensemble of professional musician from Gdańsk.

Obtaining the official authorization and license to use Stanisław Kaczmarek's lyrics is Piotr's great success, a true feat. This gives Piotr a great opportunity to record more hits by the King of Rock'n'Roll. 2010 is also a year of great success on the scene.
