ROCK: 70's Rock, POP: 70's Pop
âKolker has honed a style that is markedly individualistic. His appeal is his ability to manipulate what comes out of the guitar; to use it as a veritable voice that is moody, sensual and at times appropriately aggressive...â
- Irene Yadao, Village Voice - NYC
Deeply influenced by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck and the âThree Kingsâ â B.B., Albert, and Freddy â thereâs little wonder why David Kolkerâs guitar playing has the feeling of royalty. Blending a level of energy, inspiration, and commitment he extends the boundaries of a creative art form in a way that is powerful, pure, and distinctly his own. His mind-blowing solos â perhaps the definitive demonstration of his virtuosity â find him possessed by something remarkable.
Bucking the current trend of image-driven music on the scene today â David Kolker offers a modern, straight-ahead, blues driven rock assault.Growing up in suburban Northern New Jersey, the youngest of three kids, David Kolker began playing guitar at age 5 â you could say by default. Often hanging around the den watching his older brotherâs band rehearse, David was free to experiment with their instruments when they were off at school.
Playing along with albums from Zeppelin, Floyd, the Stones, and Skynyrd allowed Kolker to learn the nuances of the instrument and helped him develop his initial style. While his guitar playing and singing pull heavily from the blues tradition, his songwriting his the function of the music he grew up listening to on American Rock Radio in the late 70âs/early 80âs, creating a sound that his refreshingly modern and at the same time real Rootsy, Aggressive, and Melodic. It has been described as "Urban Americana".
David and his band, consisting of Kolker (lead guitar/vocals), Paul LeFebvre (guitar, pedal steel), Nikolaz Schuhbeck (Drums), and Derek Layes (Bass), has been holding residency at various institutions in New York City. The vibe of these performances has attracted many notable musicians to stop by and sit in with the band â including legendary drummers Bernard Purdie (Aretha Franklin, Jeff Beck, etc.) and Zigaboo Modeliste (founding member of the Meters) and renowned guitarists Mark Whitfield and Melvin Sparks. In addition to the nights David headlines sold out shows at hometown venues The Mercury Lounge, Knitting Factory, and The Stanhope House, he has opened for Robert Randolph and The Family Band, Dickey Betts and Great Southern, Derek Trucks Band, and Leo Nocentelli of the Meters among others. David Kolker has established himself as a leader of a new generation of rock musicians keeping the form exciting, vital, and evolving. Bucking the current trend of imageâdriven music on the scene today they offer a modern, straight-ahead, blues driven rock assault that is honest and pure.
As a songwriter, David Kolkerâs lyrics speak to the generation Xers whose ideals and sensibilities are often lost in the "Hollywood" version of what rock acts are supposed to be. His songs tell it straight and give you the feeling that he knows what you're going through as he and the people close to him go through it too. Vocally, he sounds like a young Ray Charles. In fact, he sounds alot like Ray Charles, had Ray Charles grown up playing guitar and listening to Led Zeppelin records. While Kolker sings his songs with a tremendous passion and energy, itâs his beat up guitar that often does the singing for him.
