KOOSH SAXENA - WAY OUT
Koosh is a singer / songwriter and guitarist from Santa Cruz, California. He studied jazz guitar in college while pursuing degrees in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.
Over the last 15 years he has been in several bands, the most recent of which, Little Envy, performed on a number of US tours and was signed to Houseworks Records. Following two releases with Little Envy, Koosh decided to pursue a solo career, blending influences from jazz, reggae, alt rock and world sounds alongside thought provoking lyrics. He hopes his music will encourage people to take risks, follow their passions and always practice kindness towards one another.
In his free time, Koosh enjoys living near the coast — surfing, practicing yoga, writing new music, and most recently learning to play sitar.
KOOSH SAXENA - TIDE
The first song I wrote for this project was "Tide". It incorporates all the instruments I wanted to use on the record, including sitar and trumpet. Here's behind the scenes footage of tracking guitar, vocals, sitar, trumpet and bass for this record!
LITTLE ENVY - BOY
My previous band, Little Envy was signed to Houseworks records. We recorded two full length albums and did a handful of US tours.
