Each new season is a rejoicing announcement that we are alive.
Rogue Valley, a band from Minneapolis, Minnesota has embraced all four of the seasons, writing an album dedicated to each one.
“Currently, the band is comprised of: myself; Luke Anderson, drummer; Linnea Mohn, keyboardist/vocalist; Peter Sieve, guitarist/vocalist and Paul Engels, bassist/vocalist,” Chris Koza, singer/songwriter said.
Crater Lake was the first of the group’s four albums, dedicated to spring. The Bookseller's House, dedicated to summer was the second. Geese in the Flyway, dedicated to autumn was the third. And False Floors, dedicated to winter was the fourth.
“Each album was unique,” Koza said.
Rogue Valley performs regularly at top Twin Cities venues, such as First Avenue and The Fitzgerald Theater. They also perform at festivals, such as Basilica Block Party and The Minnesota State Fair. Over time, they have extensively toured the United States and ultimately, the world.
Koza's songs have been featured on television for ABC, MTV, A&E and CBS. Rogue Valley's song The Wolves and the Ravens was featured in 20th Century Fox's feature film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
“Our newest album is called Radiate/Dissolve,” Koza said.
This Saturday, Rogue Valley will be playing at The Teatro Zuccone in Duluth. Doors open at 7 p.m.
“We are really looking forward to it,” Koza said. “Duluth is a beautiful city!”
