||Kowanko CD (1993) |
All songs written by Chris Kowanko except "Co-Star" and "Turn Me Down" (C. Kowanko/B. Zipin) and "I Work I Think I Am In Love" (C. Kowanlo/E. Ehn).
New York's Chris Kowanko tackles his honest, conversational pop songs of the deceptively everyday with the insight and inner fire of such British outsiders as Roy Harper and The Jazz Butcher. Kowanko's basic materials are still raw, but hold much promise for the future. ~ Roch Parisien
