Editors’ Notes

Chris Koza is a Twin Cities treasure, one that may not lurk for much longer in the shadows of that area’s fertile music scene. Releasing his debut Exit Pesce back in 2004, Koza was soon named Best Male Vocalist — also winning Best Pop Recording — courtesy the Minnesota Music Awards. Koza’s smart brand of organic folk-pop consistently runs ahead of the pack, and has a faint ‘70s-radio tint (both Paul Simon and Paul Westerberg occasionally come to mind). On this, his fourth album, Koza’s effortless tenor is nestled atop his chiming acoustic guitar, accompanied by perfectly placed synths, strings, and pianos. The gorgeous “Shallow Seas” is a great place to start, a shimmering ballad bucking its mournful strings and slide guitar; but the impressive, irresistible melodies of the title track, along with buoyant “The Avalon” and the heartbreaking “Adjust,” are just as strong introductions. This is the last release under Koza’s own name, just before branding his ace band Rogue Valley. Koza’s music continues to awe and enchant; surely a brighter spotlight in the national music milieu is awaiting him.

There's a funny little thing called eloquance

Wonderful album. I bought this album after hearing straight to video on the current. I didn't even realize that I liked the song, until I was singing along to it, and wondering "who the heck is this?". I then found out he was local, and knew I had to get the album. The whole cd is absolutely listenable. Some songs just have the bare instruments, and then some songs sound like they have a full orchestra. Really great instrumentation. What a great lyricist. His voice has the classical singer sound, like simon and garfunkel, and nick drake. If you are a fan of bon iver or vandaveer or any similar artists buy this album. Even if you aren't and you are a fan of great music then you should still buy this album.

Fantastic the whole way through!

I have been loving this new album! It is my favorite Chris Koza album yet. Every song is unique and I don't ever see myself skipping over a track. I enjoy the upbeat tone but then there are dark, brief moments that make the songs very rich. Koza is a true and gifted song writer.

What a happy accident!

I'm writing this under my husband's account, but I can boldly speak for the both of us when I say that it was such awesome "happenstance" that we ran into Chris Koza and crew playing at a coffee shop in a little town called Appleton, WI (we were visiting from Phoenix). Since that first encounter we've both been inamired by Chris' music, it's the best thing we've heard in YEARS. He and his band are due SO MUCH MORE credit than they get! This album is such a treat, it's like enjoying cool glass of water after wandering around in the desert! I would recomend this album (as well as previous ones) as a gift to a friend who's become apathetic about music, it will renew their hopes for sure!
