He was born in Melrose, Massachusetts and grew up near Washington. In the last year of high school, he started singing and played the role of a prince in the school musical “Cinderella”. At the age of 18 he returned to Poland and started studies at the Academy of Music in Katowice in the class of classical vocal music.

In 2020, Ochman took part in auditions for the 11th edition of the talent show The Voice of Poland. Having joined the team of Michał Szpak, he successfully passed the next stages of the competition and finally reached the final, where he gained the greatest support from viewers. After the final, he released his debut single, “Światłocienie”. In the following months, he released the singles “Wielkie tytuły”, “Wspomnienie” and “Ten sam ja”.
