COZIN PRESENTS DEBUT ALBUM
foto release via Coast To Coast

COZIN  is a popfolk band from Ghent with a distinctive acoustic sound marked by catchy melodies and beautiful vocal harmonies. The melancholic songs are created by singer-songwriter Dorien Staljanssens, who accompanies herself on piano or guitar. She is backed by Muriel Boulanger, who is magnificent on double bass, and the graceful violinist, Anne Van Steenwinkel. Muriel and Anne double as a string orchestra or a rhythm section, and lift the music with engaging backing vocals. After a very succesful crowdfundingcampaign, they will release their debut album in April 2017 with producer Koen Gisen (An Pierlé, Sarah Ferri, Bony King, Dans Dans).
