Few artists would even want to try writing, recording and releasing a quartet of albums over a 12-month span and fewer still could pull it off with as much style and just plain quality as Chris Koza did on Rogue Valley’s seasonally themed quartet. Like the music Koza releases under his own name, the Rogue Valley albums showcase a talent who is lyrically honest and musically adventurous, building breathtaking sets of music over the course of each album. Typically when an artist releases this much music in a short span of time, it means they need an editor. Kosa just has that much to say, which you can also enjoy in the band’s brilliant gigs around town (when he’s not building his national reputation) at the likes of the Dakota and the Varsity Theater. www.lostinroguevalley.com
