During one of them, he established cooperation with the leader of the SALVATOR band, Krzysztof Maciejowski, a composer, arranger and music producer. During this period, he made his first studio recordings at Polish Radio Katowice, singing in the band's choirs. One of the songs - "I like it" was included in the Premier Concert of the Opole Festival and won one of the main awards

At the beginning of the 90s, Staszek leaves the country and lives in Vienna, where he learns singing at the Private Academy of Music and acclaimed jazz singer Elly Wright. He establishes cooperation with the Viennese record company Razuton-Music, for which he records his first solo works. The label releases his solo album "The rosary of small wishes".
In 1998, Staszek returns to Poland and records his solo album in Polish in the BCF studio. 

"Rosary of Small Desires" is published by Fraza-Records in Krakow in January 1999. Songs from this album are played on radio stations, and the record has been sold out.
