The rare cornfields-to-culture ratio Minnesota affords might just create the perfect atmosphere for an overachieving songwriter and musician to wrestle with life’s dilemmas: Solo acoustic or full-on rock-and-roll band? Pop hooks or blues riffs? Oil painting, Existentialism, or baseball? So many options. In any case, the combination has certainly proven an auspicious one for Portland native Chris Koza. His first stint in the Midwest came during his college days. He left central Minnesota in 2001 with a studio art and philosophy degree, and after a few years of dividing time among Portland, Brooklyn and Minneapolis, he made the Twin Cities his home for good.
Ben Lubeck is a songwriter based in Minneapolis. He is a founding member of Farewell Milwaukee and has released four records with the band and released his first solo effort, Rented Rooms, in February 2016. Coverage surrounding the album included a song premiere with The Bluegrass Situation, a Radio Heartland in-studio session premiered by Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current, with a number seven placement in the StarTribune’s “Best-of-2016 Minnesota Album Poll.” The album was recorded with Brad Bivens in between Ben’s schedule with Farewell Milwaukee. Ben tracked the vocals and guitar live, then augmented each song with contributions from notable Twin City musicians including: Ben Kyle, Adam Levy, Jacob Hanson, Alex Young, and many more. The album was conceived as an act of reconciliation toward’s Ben's father, while contemplating his own new found status as a dad. Since the album’s release, Ben has remained busy with Farewell Milwaukee and is in the process of recording a new solo album.
