With technologically heavy music flooding the radio, it’s unbelievably refreshing to hear organic music. While I do think the word, “organic”, is wrongly thrown around the music industry just as much as that in the health world, the stripped down sound of artist and activist, Koji, fits too appropriately with the term to avoid its use. Koji dropped his debut full-length, “Crooked In My Mind”, on April 30th via Run For Cover Records and with one play through, his effortless storytelling ability comes to the forefront. No beat dropper can compete with that lyrical mastery.
Koji, who is affiliated with such organizations as Resolve and Invisible Children and Humility Now, will be heading out on the road in support of his latest release in the coming months. The Harrisburg, PA-based singer’s concerts typically feature a combination of music, storytelling, media and visual art, which are all aimed at empowering the youth. This summer, Koji will be joined by label mate, Turnover, on their co-headlining tour alongside Ivy League and Have Mercy. Turnover also dropped his debut, “Magnolia, which is available on iTunes. Kicking off the tour on June 7th in Altoona, PA, the Run For Cover Records’ buddies will be hitting the east and west coast throughout June and July.
