"Koch has put in a decade’s work developing a sound that’s one part sturdy anchor, one part stunning ache. He counts songwriters Gregory Alan Isakov, Elliott Smith and Ryan Adams as influences and measuring sticks; the comparisons are apt — one can hear similar traces of the beautiful and world-weary in Koch’s work. It would be just as fitting to liken Koch to a Midwestern version of Glen Hansard; often, Koch’s songwriting is bleary-eyed and beleaguered, but just as often, he is able to unravel the silver strand from the stormcloud he spots." "...Koch’s catalog is stocked with melodies strong enough and romantic enough to soundtrack the most pivotal scene on your favorite TV show or art-house drama. Yet, his lyrics are deep enough and wide enough to matter long after the credits roll. Koch’s voice is one that needs to be heard and should be followed wherever it leads the listener."
