The three songwriters/producers who make up DISTANT
COUSINS have more than enough musical and personal
connections to justify the name of their band. And their chemistry
was so strong that their first official writing session resulted in a
spirited song appropriately called “On My Way.”
“The excitement and enthusiasm of our working together was
immediately in the air,” says Ami Kozak. “We really felt like we
were on our way.” Based in Los Angeles, DISTANT COUSINS first
formed in late 2012 when Kozak and Dov Rosenblatt, childhood
friends from the East Coast, decided to collaborate.
At a private concert, they performed “When We Love,” a song that
Dov had written with Duvid Swirsky, another longtime friend,
musician and third member of the band.
Inspired, Ami offered to bring it into the studio to record and
produce the track. The sessions that followed were just as fruitful as
the first, resulting in an EP’s worth of alternative folk pop tunes that
are vibrant and heartfelt, and will sway your soul to the brighter
side of life.
Dov, Ami and Duvid each bring to the collaboration impressive
In their short time as a band, DISTANT COUSINS is already
showing signs that they are “on their way.” Their debut single, "Raise It Up," was prominently featured on USA's 'Graceland' and CBS's 'Criminal Minds.' Keep an eye out for much more music soon...
