Influences are like travelers one picks up along the way, and a broad range inspire singer-songwriter John Koah’s music. The Black Crowes were one of his first influences. The Smashing Pumpkins were also along for the ride, as were Led Zeppelin, Jackson Browne and others.
Although he has lead many groups over the years, it is Koah’s intimate solo performances, reminiscent of classic 70’s songwriters, that he is involved with right now. His voice has been compared to Van Morrison and Cat Stevens.
