In Real Time: CD

In cart Not available Out of stock
$12.00

Rogue Valley frontman Chris Koza has completed a new solo album titled In Real Time; a twelve-song collection confronting the perception of time, the oasis of the in-between, and the allure of the ocean. The Portland-raised, Minnesota-based singer-songwriter has consistently produced and released music over the past decade. Koza's songs are being heard on television and radio broadcasts all across the world. Most recently, Koza's song The Wolves and the Ravens was featured in Ben Stiller's film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and also included on the soundtrack.

In Real Time was written and recorded in Minneapolis, Minnesota between stretches on the road. The album finds Koza returning to the pop songwriting roots he established in his pre-Rogue Valley work such as Patterns (2006) and The Dark Delirious Morning (2008). In Real Time pits the time traveler against his younger self, face-to-face in a vacant parking lot on the edge of town. It is classic Americana re-imagined through the lens of a jukebox aficionado; a cagey swirl of rhythms, textures, and lyrics that depict the grass coming up through the cracks in the pavement, reaching for the sun. credits released 28 October 2014

Mixing: Brett Bullion Mastering: Huntly Miller Additional Production and Programming: Paul Marino Produced by: Chris Koza All Songs and Lyrics by Chris Koza (c) Little Radios (ASCAP)

Initial live tracking and strings performed at The Pearl Recording Studio by Zach Hollander. Overdubs and vocals tracked at Little Radios by Chris Koza and Paul Marino. Piano on “Prism” recorded by Kevin Bowe at Okemah Studio. During the first string overdub session (for Electric Tide, In Real Time, and Prism) The Laurels String Quartet was comprised of: Josh Misner (first violin), Jesse Peterson (second violin), Erica Burton (viola), and Ben Rosenbush (cello). The second session (Radio Wave) featured Colleen Bertsch (first violin), Jesse Peterson (second violin), Erica Burton (viola), and Dan Lawonn (cello).

Beyond The Divide: CD

In cart Not available Out of stock
$10.00

In the spirit of Brad Barr, Explosions in the Sky, Helios, and other pop-instrumentalists, the Beyond The Divide Film Soundtrack album is a delightful listen either under intense headphones scrutiny or as background textures drifting throughout the day. But I would be all the more grateful if you would have a listen and decide for yourself.

The album is packaged in a full-color matte-finish eco-wallet, incorporating photography from the film and lyrics. The design elements can be seen below. Full artwork will be added once the albums arrive from the manufacturer.

Beyond The Divide is a documentary film directed and produced by Jan Selby. Chris Koza composed the original score for the film, which was edited by Bill Kersey. The film premiered at DocUtah and is continuing to elicit powerful emotional responses from viewers all over the world.

The music begins with simple meditative guitar melodies and rhythms and slowly blossoms through a hybrid of woodsy and synthetic textures.

The title track on the album is the only song with vocals, where Koza channels his best mellow-mountaintop voice to carefully drift among the crags and crevices of a complicated and revealing facade. credits released 11 November 2014
