Novotny moved to the bluegrass of southern Kentucky at the age of 12,where he began his musical career learning the classical guitar and absorbing the deep country and bluegrass musical culture of the region. After moving to the Northwest and playing many years in various Irish, folk and popular music bands, including Cul an Ti and the Hanz Araki band, Novotny returned to explore his Kentucky country and Americana roots and has now become a regular in the Nashville area music scene as a performing singer/songwriter.
