Last year, Indiana based songwriter Kevin Krauter recorded his debut EP while attending school in Muncie. The songs were a collection of old demos thrown together into a six-song EP for a friend's semester project. A year later, the same friend approached Krauter with the idea for another six-song project. This time, Krauter had been writing new songs over the past year with the intention of releasing them together on an album. What resulted is a cohesive collection of songs that range from a multitude of influences from bossa nova to Americana. Each song is born from a different emotional/personal background, but they each follow a theme of change and growth. Using his solo work as an outlet for non-Hoops material, Changes is Krauter’s first attempt at writing and recording a set of songs that flow together thematically while maintaining their own distinctive sound and feeling. Changes is out December 2nd on Winspear & Warm Ratio.
