Petr Muk (4 February 1965 – 24 May 2010) was a Czech pop musician, composer and performer, famous in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In addition to his albums of original songs, he released a tribute EP to the English band Erasure in 2004. Before his solo career, Muk was a member of two bands, Oceán (1985–1993) and Shalom (1992–1996).

In 2010, Muk was found dead by his wife in their home in Prague.[1] An autopsy and blood work revealed he had medical drugs and alcohol in his blood.
