conceived and conducted by Los Angeles artist Michael Collins (formerly
of Run DMT, Salvia Plath) who guides a group of Angelenos through a
whimsical world informed by Jean Baudrillard, social media perception,
Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western vistas and Collins’ endless travels.

Chris Cohen is a 37-year-old native of Los Angeles currently residing in the farmlands of Vermont. He is the child of a former music business executive and a former Broadway actress. His resumé of prior musical projects is a long one: as a contributing member of The Curtains, Cryptacize, Deerhoof, and Natural Dreamers, he released 10 full-length albums between 2002 and 2008. Along the way, Cohen was also a touring player with White Magic, Cass McCombs, Haunted Graffiti and Danielson, among others, for stints both short and long. All of this has culminated in his first release under his own name, and his first for Captured Tracks, Overgrown Path. –Captured Tracks
