There’s a lot of highway between Harrisburg and here…
We grew up together in fire halls, youth centers, warehouses, coffee shops, and bars. We’ve grown together, grown apart, impressed each other, pissed each other off, pushed and motivated each other, made it home safe with the other behind the wheel, and I can look back on these years and know how valuable his love is to me… Andrew (Koji) is one of the most incredible friends I could have ever asked for… I can only inadequately attempt to describe the feeling I get when I stand behind him when he plays. My gut settles, my heart rises, and I hear him. In those moments, I also want everyone in the world to hear him.
He’s spent years playing his songs, fighting for causes, encouraging people to work for a better world, touring constantly, and growing as a musician, but he never managed to write a full length album…
This past Tuesday, Koji released his first full length, “Crooked In My Mind,” and Friday night, Exit Skate Shop in Philly hosted his album release party featuring Vinnie Caruana (IATA/The Movielife), Turnover, Modern Baseball, and Dads. Kids packed into the shop for the show. They came to listen. It was great.
Now it’s your turn to listen. Koji “Crooked In My Mind”
Hell yeah. That was awesome.
