John Cozz

Hey whats up hows it going!?!?! My name is John Cozz and I reign from a small town in Northern New Jersey or more commonly referred to as "that place they filmed the sopranos at" Anyways I am a 21 year acoustic guitar player and the themes of my music consist the anxiety of living in the places you grew up in, the fear of the inevitable (getting old), the self consciousness one gets from partying and drinking too much, being in love/ being heart broken, and sometimes just the beauty of this world we live in. I tend to stick to original music because the music of the artists who have heavily Influenced me are very personal stories and I do not feel as it is my place to share someone else stories I want to share my own stories, thoughts, and emotions. With that being said my influences consist of Jeffrey Lewis, Isaac Brock, Jeff Rosenstock (all of his projects), Pat the Bunny ( all of his projects), Elliott Smith, Daniel Johnston, Lou Reed, and Andrew Jackson Jihad. They are such influential people in my life for many different reasons but one of the common themes is they get things done themselves. There's nothing I would like more than to fully indulge in a community of D.I.Y. musicians and grow as a human through the inspiration these people feed off. So if you're interested in having me perform don't hesitate to contact me. [+]
