Closing with as interesting a bookend as it began with, “Distance” delivers with its breezy island fill, bright hits of trumpet accented by the swelling strings of a kora, a harp-like instrument that lends another compelling texture.

Stephen Cogswell San Francisco, California

Stephen Cogswell is a remarkable singer and songwriter with a knack for creating island beats and breezy tunes that are not too unlike music by Xavier Rudd, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and even Darius Rucker. The vocals are strong, poetic, and earthy throughout. If a beach had a soundtrack: Floating would be the answer.
