    My songs have unconventional timings but Michael rose to the challenge. He added a flow to the songs that cant be achieved with a drum machine.

    This was the second project where I have used Michael. He did another great job working with a song that had really bad timing in its original form, but he managed to clean it up.

    Michael did a great job. I asked him to re-create a complex drum part from a song based on a poor quality audio 30 year old cassette tape. Not only did he do it very quickly, but he nailed it.

    Michael is an awesome drummer and it was great working with him. I gave him a challenging song and he exceeded my expectations. I Definitely recommend him!

    Michael added so many textures into the song that revealed my true emotional connection to the lyrics that tears were brought to my eyes :) Once again, a stellar job. Great guy to work with!

    On my 3rd song, Kolar inserted creative ideas and I ran with them. He added a new feel to my song which helped me get lyrics out of my head I was having trouble with. It was worth tipping him extra money for his expertise :) By the way, most of my songs are acoustic rock, and even though he's in a power metal band, he handles my style nicely!

    Michael not only is versatile in drumming, but he took the time to listen to what I wanted, and I'm a picky mofo! He even added some ideas that bumped my song to another level. Michael is making me a very happy musician/man! You rock MK!

    Michael understood exactly what I was looking for. Easy to work with and catches on quick. His rock-style drumming brought my song to a new level. I will send him more songs! Rock on Michael!

    First time doing this and would highly recommend Michael. Picked right up on my demo recording and added flair to it. Quick turn around as well.
