Jeff Koch Interview

Today's show features the music of Jeff Koch.  Jeff Koch is a singer/songwriter making spiritually themed roots-rock music reminiscent of Eric Clapton, Jack Johnson, and Cat Stevens - or maybe Bob Dylan!

Jeff's musical journey began at the University of Michigan, where he graduated with a degree in English literature and discovered a knack for putting music and words together.  As a listener, Jeff cut his teeth on "classic rock," quickly ranging out to funk, folk, and world music.  As a performer, Koch's instinct for language evokes the feel of a folk story nestled in a rich tapestry of rhythm and blues.

As you will hear in the interview, after coming to faith after college, these musical styles merged with his faith and Jewish identity to produce an organic and alluring blend.  In his music, Jeff weaves together scripture and liturgy with broad American roots to create an addictive, groove-oriented sound which crosses traditional boundaries.   Through his music, Jeff's goal is to encourage and build bridges of hope.
