Chris Koza is a Minneapolis, Minnesota-based singer/songwriter, and has released three albums since 2004 -- "Exit Pesce," "Patterns," and "A Friend of a Friend" (EP). Music critics have compared Chris' sound to Wilco, Paul Simon, Nick Drake, Beck, and Ryan Adams, among others. He performs live with a band, which includes anywhere from 2-7 members. Deep into autumn of 2004 Chris released his debut album "Exit Pesce" in an apartment. But it wasn't until early the following year when a little blurb by Rob van Alstyne of the Pulse Magazine was printed before anyone really took notice of the album, calling Exit Pesce "An under-the-radar-music-stunner-phenomenon" In April 2006, Chris released "Patterns," which went on to receive more acclaim, including a Minnesota Music Award for Best Pop Recording (Chris also won the Best Male Vocalist award). At the end of 2006, Patterns was kindly included in some local best-of lists, coming in at 10 in the Star Tribune's annual Twin Cities Critics Tally, and at 1 in Chris Riemenschneider's (Star Tribune Music Critic) top ten local albums list.
