"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."
“Okay, so I really like Nashville-based musician Geoff Koch. He’s got a pretty voice and plays pretty songs, and I like him, and if you like pretty voices and pretty songs, I highly recommend giving him a listen. Koch was one of a dozen musicians to participate in a Chevrolet (yes, as in the car company) documentary called The Chevy Music Showcase. Koch has three albums you can give a whirl: Throwing Rocks at Your Ghost, Live at Lucas School House, and If It Feels Good Don’t Do It, the latter of which was produced by Wilco’s and Uncle Tupelo’s Ken Coomer, who also played drums on the album. I caught up with Koch by phone for a quick chat just before his set at the Casbah in Durham, North Carolina. --- Click the link for the full interview! ---”
