Album Notes
For those who have enjoyed this album, check out Jon Koschoreck's (guitarist/songwriter for fermata) other project Eli August, also available on cdbaby or at www.eliaugust.com

Combining the intimacy of chamber music with the boldness of rock, Fermata weaves together a sound that is fresh and invigorating. The union of traditional string instruments with hard-edged rock ballads and complex song structures forms the foundation of what Fermata calls “acoustic chamber rock.” Fermata aims to push the limits of acoustic string music by blurring the lines between traditional genres such as classical, pop, folk, rock and bluegrass and finding new techniques to pull percussion and energy from stringed instruments.

In 2005 Jon Koschoreck founded Fermata as a way to bring his music to audiences. As Fermata’s lead songwriter and guitarist, Koschoreck has been the major force behind the music, helping to guide the group as it searches to be original and profound. The inspiration for many of Fermata’s songs comes from personal experiences as well as fiction. Some of the songs are based on Koschoreck’s novellas, giving the songs additional depth and detail. In all of the songs, Fermata aims to combine melody and harmony with the poetry of the words to create art that is dramatic and moving.

Originating as an electric rock group, Fermata was retooled in 2007 as an acoustic ensemble. The acoustic instruments match Koschoreck’s earthy, organic musical style. After bringing classically trained vocalist Lisa Mazza and bassist Cody Davis into the group, Fermata moved towards its new sound by recruiting Matt Manske on the mandolin and Karl Stuen on the viola. The stand-up bass forms the percussive and harmonic foundation of the ensemble with guitar and mandolin filling out the chords, harmony and rhythm. Soprano vocals intertwine with the viola to create haunting melody and counter-melody lines that soar through the aural textures. Coming from diverse backgrounds in rock, classical, jazz, and hip-hop music, the musicians of Fermata strive to break new ground with a sound that is both accessible and unique.

After hearing the songs on the band's myspace page, I decided to buy this album. I have to say, it is definitely a great buy-- this is a very polished and good sounding album! The songs are all played and sung with a great amount of passion that you seldom hear these days. Just about each track is memorable and considering this to be their first album with this sound, I am looking forward very much to seeing what they produce in the future. Considering that they're still not very well known, I would encourage you to buy the album to support this up and coming band-- they really have something special here!
