The Independent Music Show
presents our featured artist
Texas Americana singer-songwriter Libby Koch (pronounced "coke") is a “country meets soulful” (Free Press Houston), “feisty Texas songbird” (Country Music People) who “sings her story with a little twang, some slide guitar, and a lot of heart” (Texas Monthly). Libby is working on the follow up album to her critically acclaimed 2016 LP Just Move On (Berkalin Records). Working in Nashville with Grammy-winning producer Bil VornDick, she draws on legends from Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn to Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris, among others, to craft “true cryin’ and leavin’ country songs.” Combining her country soul with a seventh-generation Texas troubadour’s storytelling skill, Koch fills her songs with intimacy and honesty. Like the most timeless country classics, they’re the kind that make you feel good about feelin’ bad.
Koch’s gospel-grounded and honky-tonk voice powerfully navigates the emotions inherent in an album about relationships, starting with the opening break-up trio, “Just Move On,” “You Don’t Live Here Anymore” and “Out of My Misery” — three diverse, retro-to-modern songs that ultimately convey more about the triumph of empowerment than the pain of loss. Tracked live with veteran players handpicked by VornDick, the album, her fourth, is a fine follow-up to her 2014 release, Tennessee Colony, which drew on her ancestors’ stories to address themes of family, faith and home. Calling it “a frisky blend of country, folk, bluegrass and gospel set to some mighty fine fiddle, banjo and mandolin” and labeling it “daisy fresh,” the Houston Press put Tennessee Colony on its year-end top 10 list.
Though Houston native Koch began writing songs in junior high school, she never considered doing so professionally until she attended law school at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University, where she discovered she could hold her own in a city full of heavyweight talents. A job at a large Houston law firm convinced her music, not law, was her true calling, and eventually, she decided it was time to … just move on.
Just Move On earned Libby three first-round GRAMMY ballot nominations in the Country Solo Performance, Country Song, and Country Album Categories.
MORE PRESS QUOTES
The Houston Press has named Libby as one of Houston's most up and coming artists! Read the cover story HERE.
"Too country for country, Koch these days would get filed under folk, the same place you find too country for country folks such as Lucinda Williams." (Houston Chronicle).
"Libby Koch may have set this album in the tiny East Texas settlement near Palestine where her ancestors settled in the days of William B. Travis, but the lively arrangements -- a frisky blend of country, folk, bluegrass and gospel set to some mighty fine fiddle, banjo and mandolin -- not only make Tennessee Colony sound daisy-fresh, but the rare acoustic-based album that truly deserves to be called "Americana." (Chris Gray, The Houston Press)
"It is artists like Koch that are restoring faith in country music to its fans." (Matthew Warnock, International Guitar Magazine)
"Koch blends her folk and country influences into a storytelling collage that leaves the listener refreshed, enlightened, and entertained. Both live and in the CD player, Texas music fans are warming up to Libby, and she is making an indelible mark on the performing scene." (Lucky Boyd, www.mytexasmusic.com)
