ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It is a simple objective really; create music to reflect the emotion of a specific time and space in the modern world.

Launched as a collective effort between songwriters, Brett “B.” Crockett and Heather Pierce in 2001, Karmacoda laces their electronica/trip hop foundation with elements of rock, pop and jazz, creating truly addictive sonic recreation. Outfitting themselves with the turntable magic of DJ Rafael Acevedo, Eric Matsuno’s hypnotic bass, B. on vocals, guitar and keyboards and the soaring lead vocals of Heather, Karmacoda’s vibe is immediately engaging, particularly live.

History / Discography:
The summer 2001 release of Karmacoda's debut Reco mended garnered an overwhelmingly positive response and a happily surprised Karmacoda began receiving inquiries as to when the new group would perform live. Because Karmacoda began primarily as a studio project, the challenges and limitations of playing the material live were not a primary concern during writing and recording. Following the formation of the full, performing core of the band, Karmacoda's live shows quickly became popular throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, grabbing the attention of local promoters and clubs and a burgeoning fan base. By integrating a live VJ who creates real-time custom video projection, the band's musical vision was not only being heard but literally seen. The music on Reco mended was heavily featured in film and television soundtracks and won several music awards including the 2003 IMG Music Award for best independent song used in film and television for their track Swan.

Karmacoda's second album Evidence was released in August of 2003, receiving critical acclaim, being extensively featured in film and television and winning several independent and international songwriting awards. With the release of Evidence Karmacoda's international exposure and fan base began to grow exponentially leading to hundreds of thousands of visitors per month to their site, with nearly half originating from outside the US.

In 2004, Altered Evidence: Late Night Remixes, featuring remixes of the tracks on Evidence was released to additional critical acclaim and extensive international sales, particularly through downloadable music stores such as iTunes.

In 2006, Karmacoda began exploring the new realm of writing film soundtracks by contributing songs and scoring the entire soundtrack for the full-length feature Voyeur. January 2007 also saw the band completing their groundbreaking new album Illuminate.

Check 'em out!
While we hear the Massive Attack influence, Karmacoda's 'Evidence' is full of extremly well-written and perfectly produced tracks. Heather Pierce, B., Brian Templeton and Rafael Aceredo did good job along with engineer Brett Crockett from Sola Music Studio, tracks like 'All that Depth', 'Awaken' and 'Firefly' will shake up the triphop world. Check'em out and buy the album today!

Excellent CD for any music fan!
I discoverd this CD by accident on a trip to SanFran and it was the best accident ever! The music grooves and flows with intensity and emotion, but without having to force anything. The vocals are beautiful and melodic. They seem to glide over the underlying beat. I would highly recommend this CD to electronica fans, or to any music fan for that matter. It's a laid back groove with real musicality and depth that you can't find in most bands out there today.

Music Dish

Evidence of Something Special
On Evidence the mellow trip hop beats glide like a cruise down Highway #1. Karmacoda creates a lush groove, that like love, can go on forever.

On songs like “Where you Sleep” they reinvent electro lounge pop and tone down the electronics to do what they do best - add atmosphere. Singer Heather Pierce's vocals are incredibly soulful, with emotion that supersedes electro and trip hop which eschews any feelings, save for melancholy and paralysis.

Cool!
Karmcoda puts out a straight up, cool vibe. Heather Pierce has a beautiful voice which she uses to compliment Brett “B.” Crockett’s haunting vocals. She takes the lead, and quite skillfully on songs like "Tragic” and “Awaken".
If you’re looking for some hot indie beats to bounce down the strip with, then Karmacoda is for you. I think these guys would sound great in an acoustic setting. Great sound, I can’t wait to see them play live someday. Favorites: (4) Front of My Room, (8) WhatWithAll
