Since 2012, he's been the lead vocalist of a band named Bednarek, which released a number-one album Jestem... in November 2012.

History[edit]

Star Guard Muffin and breakthrough (2008–2011)[edit]

Kamil Bednarek founded Star Guard Muffin with his friends in 2008. The band's debut concert was as a support for a Polish raggamuffin band EastWest Rockers. A year later Star Guard Muffin self-released a debut EP Ziemia Obiecana (Promised Land).

In 2010, Bednarek participated in the third series of Mam talent!, the Polish version of the Got Talent series. At the casting he performed a song "I" by Kurt Nilsen and impressed the judges. In the semi-final he sang Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven" and got to the final, where he placed 2nd after singing "Is This Love" by Bob Marley. .[2]

Around the same time, on 19 November 2010, Star Guard Muffin released its debut full-length album Szanuj.[3] On the wave of Kamil's popularity, the album peaked at no. 1 on the Polish sales chart OLiS.

In April 2011, the band went to Jamaica. They recorded an EP titled Jamaican Trip in the Tuff Gong studio in Kingston. The record features guest appearances by Dean Fraser, Earl "Chinna" Smith,[4] Capleton, The Tamlins, musicians from Shaggy's band and others.[5]

Bednarek (2012–present)[edit]

At the beginning of 2012, Kamil Bednarek took part in the second season of the TV show Bitwa na głosy, broadcast by TVP 2. The group of 16 vocalists from Brzeg, which was coached by him, won the show.

In February 2012 it was announced that bassist Kuba Wojciechowski decided to leave Star Guard Muffin and the band was suspended. Kamil Bednarek decided to continue playing with keyboardist Radosław Szyszkowski and drummer Maciej Pilarz under the band name Bednarek, and the line-up was completed by guitarist Piotr Bielawski and bassist Piotr Stanclik.[6] The band's studio album Jestem..., released on 28 November 2012, debuted at no. 1 at OLiS chart[7] and was certified platinum.[8]
