Cohen, Greg: Golden State (Relative Pitch)
Label: Relative Pitch    
Released in: USA    

"I spent my early years - when all was new, exploring the hills, shores, highways and flatlands of the Golden State [California]. Those formative years were times that I developed my fascination with the more historic qualities of California. It's nature. The shells from the sea. The minerals from the hills and creeks. The flora and fauna. The animals that lived alongside us humas in every corner of the state.

It is also the land where I decided what I wanted to do with my life. Play music! I was lucky to have many great people encouraging me along the way. Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Bay area provided me the chance to learn and work with some people that would change the way I approached music. [...]"-Greg Cohen, from the liner notes
