ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Roger Dierck Kohrs, also known as "Tiny," is the bassist for Goldfish Andy and formerly the bassist for the American rockabilly artist Unknown Hinson.

Roger grew up surrounded by plenty of jazz, blues and rock'n'roll thanks to his father, who played guitar in a big band. Roger also plays upright bass, guitar, keyboards, harmonica and banjo. When asked about his musical influences he mentions Django Reinhart, Jaco Pastorius, John Entwistle, John Paul Jones and Ray Brown. His first small performance was in the 6th grade playing the accordion.

Roger has played in countless road bands throughout the years and shared the stage with many musicians, including Dee Clark, Ray Pillow and Bruce Hornesby, Larry Carlton, Little Feet, The Yellowjackets, and BR- 549 just to name a few.

After settling in North Carolina in 1993, Roger became friends with drummer Bill "Buddy Boy" Scott and together they joined the American cult band Unknown Hinson. Roger describes Unknown Hinson's style as "country western metal psycho-billy". Later after leaving Unknown Hinson, they formed the instrumental group, Goldfish Andy with guitarist Derek Furr.

Fresh Lettuce is the first solo CD by Roger Kohrs. The CD contains 12 original compositions by the bassist in a pop/jazz/rock/blues fusion of styles and offers a refreshing listening experience. This music is great listening for a road trip!

Look for the Goldfish Andy album to be debuting on CDBaby very soon!

This CD is amazing; all instrumental tracks, but interesting and calming at the same time. My 2 favorite tracks are "a cool Day" and "Bettie Page." Each artist is extremely talented: great bass lines, cool drum breaks, harmonica solos. This CD has it all !

I've seen Roger play many times with Unknown Hinson but this CD really lets you hear more of Roger's influences. Every track has a memorable hook. Different instruments get to solo throughout the disc so you never get tired of any one timbre. Bravo!

Roger Kohrs "FRESH LETTUCE" ..."an exercise in humility for musicians everywh
I bought Roger's CD,"Fresh Lettuce" a couple of months ago, and I have it on my hard drive in the studio, and on disc in the car. It is a wonderfully deep, creative, and insightful expression of virtuosity. The writing is challenging and thoughtful in the usage of modes and modulations, and the use of many instruments "outside of the box!" In addition to his superior writing skills; Roger's performance skills as an all around musician shine like a bright star, transporting the listener on journey after journey through a universe of tasteful imagination on a ship of instrumental virtuosity! I would do something AWFUL to the person that stole this CD from me. Cheap at any price! BUY ONE!
