A Czech Republic-based romantic rock balladeer, Petr Kolár was born on June 20, 1967, in the town of Ceske Budejovice. Originally trained and educated as a percussionist, Kolár moved to Prague in 1993 and found his place as a singer in musical theater, performing in Prague in such works as Dracula, Hamlet, The Three Musketeers, and Excalibur. While honing his skills as a vocalist, Kolár was also a member of some of the Czech Republic's best-known bands, including Precedens and Arkain, as well as working with some of that country's best-known solo artists, including Karel Svoboda, Lucie Bílá, and Karel Gott. Eventually, Kolár was ready to strike out on his own, and in 2005 released his debut full-length, entitled (simply) Album, and followed it up with album number two -- V Lucerne -- in 2006. In 2007, Kolár released the Top Ten-selling album Bez Kridel, and continued to play to sold-out crowds all over the Czech Republic.
