The amazing David Kollar delivered some great additional guitar parts for my upcoming album. Very unique player with a great musical sensibility and tone. ”

— Marco Minnemann /Paul Gilbert, Joe Satrian, The Aristocrats.../

I love the heavy mood and dark vibe. You definitely get into some deep tonalities!”

— Adam Holzman /Miles Davis, Robben Ford, Marcus Miller, Michel Petrucciani.../

His use of sound processing also appeals to me. He integrates his guitar pedals and laptop into the fabric of what he performs. There aren’t a lot of guys like David that I’ve come across. It was an experiment to use him on that track and it paid off, musically...."”

Steven Wilson /Porcupine Tree/

"David in particular is one of the most innovative and driven young guitarists on the scene today. An interesting combination of Eastern European classical influences, Jazz, ambient, techno, IDM, trippy heavy blues rock mixed with eastern folk styles, Played on a homemade guitar through a quirky combination of pedals and effects he attains a one-of-a-kind sound. I know critics often like to put music into with David's music that's very difficult to do. "”

— Pat Mastelotto /KING CRIMSON, Mr Mister, .../

"Sounds fantastic!! I love it. Congratulations! This is really good and inspiring stuff".”


"David is a hard working musician, presenting exciting sounds and orchestrations on a long list of releases and projects. I heard this talent in Prague- Inspiring energy to me."”

— Arve Henriksen /SuperSilent, David Sylvian, .../

"Amazing playing and production."”

— Christian Fennesz /Mike Patton, David Sylvian, Ryuichi Sakamoto,.../

"It's not an easy thing to develop a fresh and unique approach to such a popular and well worn instrument as the guitar, but David Kollar certainly manages to bring something new to the table, having both a creative use of effects and also an effective sensibility of where and how to use them. He's capable of extreme restraint, but he also clearly knows how to let rip, as evidenced with the mighty Komara, in short, he's a rare and deadly combination."”

— Colin Edwin /Porcupine Tree/

I’ve really enjoyed your playing these last few gigs, you have a refreshing and unusual style. ”

Nick Beggs /Steve Hacket, John Mitchel,.../

"I enjoy the Komara recording already, and your playing & approach. Excellent music for me!"”

— David Torn /David Bowie, .../

"David Kollar’s thoughtful and often poignant soundscapes on The Son make for impressive and often emotional listening. Amid the shimmering atmospherics there’s also an angsty grit that prevents the album from slipping into the bland or indifferent.”

— Sid Smith - King Crimson Biography, DGM live

God (the mean, vengeful one) makes a cameo in the 10-minute suite, “Detonation”. All told, a ton of melody and energy on face value...”

— Rolling Stone - Australia

"I first heard David's guitar work in KOMARA and I thought there were more members in the band than 3. His original and unique style is amazing to hear and watch. David's creativity and skill at improv guitar playing and fx manipulation sounds like 2 guitarists, bass and keyboards at the same time!"”

— Expanding hands music - Kevin Andrews, founder

There is no doubt that KoMaRa attempts to build a new aesthetic in contemporary music." ”

— ADAM BARUCH - Jazz Forum

Detonation, that largely eschews overt virtuosity, barring guest David Kollar's most impressive guitar solo”
