Mikolas Josef is a composer, producer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and director of music videos. He grew up in Prague and Znojmo, but now lives mainly in Vienna. Mikolas comes from a family of musicians and has been playing the guitar since he was five. 

Mikolas graduated from The English College in Prague and although his study grades were good enough for him to go to prestigious UK colleges, he opted not to keep studying, but to get on with his musical career. Aged 17, Mikolas won the highest meritorious award from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts; the Gold Medal with distinction for solo acting. He has not yet taken up a career in acting though. 

Just before embarking on his musical career, Mikolas spent a year working as an international model, for major global fashion brands. He cut his promising modelling career short, rejecting practices within the industry. After leaving the modelling world, he headed to European cities including Oslo, Zurich, Hamburg, Vienna, and Prague, where he made a living as a street musician. After a year of travelling he invested his savings in his creative work, which in 2015 resulted in his first single and video-clip Hands Bloody.

Mikolas became better known to Czech fans after his second single Free. This song has been ranked the fourth most played local song in the Czech Republic. The single Believe held the top slot of the most prestigious Czech hit charts, the Evropa 2 music chart, for 3 weeks. After Believe, Mikolas moved to Vienna, invited there by the renowned European sound-mix engineer Nikodem Milewski who later became, in Mikolas’ words, his "musical mentor". Milewski, who works closely with the best in Europe, including Felix Jaehn, Sam Smith, Klangkarusell and many others, also worked with Mikolas on his latest single, Lie to Me.

Lyrics of Lie To Me

Oh oh she a good girl at home but Her skirt goes up like Marilyn Monroe's Papa likes the drama mama hotter then lava She rocking high heels Prada her face like Madonna By the way she moved got me making a puddle Baby I already knew you would be nothing but a trouble Damn it everybody knows she never loved for real Honey bunny up all night wannabe couplegoals queen I know you 'bop-whop-a-lu bop' on his wood bamboo When you were still seeing me and well he didn't even knew hmm But God damn it come and count to three now sit down GGY I'm on fire Come and lie to me Lie to me oh baby come a little closer Lie to me Lie to me oh baby lean upon my shoulder Lie to me Get down on my body and love me like it was always meant to be Now you love somebody new I always knew So come and give it to me When the beat dropped she dropped, dropped it like it's hot And now without a second thought she got me doing what I'm not Then it got heavy Mom I'm feeling home already But steady plenty these greedies wanna eat my spaghetti Then she got one of my friends She got him dripping on wood I know it hurt so bad but it feels so good Quit sweet talking me now baby I don't give a damn You should've thought about me back when I was your man I know you 'bop-whop-a-lu bop' on his wood bamboo When you were still seeing me and well he didn't even knew hmm But God damn it come and count to three now sit down GGY I'm on fire Come and lie to me Lie to me oh baby come a little closer Lie to me Lie to me oh baby lean upon my shoulder Lie to me Get down on my body and love me like it was always meant to be Now you love somebody new I always knew So come and give it to me You know I like it When you lie lie lie You look so good When you lie lie lie Set my camel in the mood When you lie When you lie Come and lie to me Lie to me oh baby come a little closer Lie to me Lie to me oh baby lean upon my shoulder Lie to me Get down on my body and love me like it was always meant to be Now you love somebody new I always knew So come and give it to me
