The influences of Steely Dan, and The Allman Brothers are now made relevant with a relentless fusion of music. The vocal style is reminiscent of classic Elvis Costello and Tom Petty, with a contemporary dash similar to Rob Thomas.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Frank and Jim Kovac have teamed up to combine over 30 years of music experience and a craving for originality to create the band, KOVAC BROTHERS. The group blends elements of rock, with jazz harmony and a dash of southern rock edge to get their unique sound. The influences of Steely Dan, and The Allman Brothers are now made relevant with a relentless fusion of music. The vocal style is reminiscent of classic Elvis Costello and Tom Petty, with a contemporary dash similar to Rob Thomas. In addition, the mix of contemporary subject matter, timeless lyrical content, and flip anecdotes, reminiscent of the best in American roots music to keep the listener grounded during the musical journey.

Describing the collective nature of KOVAC BROTHERS introduces the rebirth of the band. Before Kovac Brothers, the last time Frank and Jim performed on a major stage together was at the 1997 HORDE Tour in Philadelphia with Colonel Bruce Hampton (Aquarium Rescue Unit) and members of Leftover Salmon. At the time, Frank Kovac was touring relentlessly with New Brown Hat and Jim Kovac was a free-lance drummer, a hired gun, most notably with industrial band Simulcast, hip-hop group the Nervous System and pop singer Amie Miriello (now Dirtie Blonde). Jim Kovac adds, “We’re not just looking to create interesting music but also to promote independent music as a more sincere representation of people’s ideas”.
Beginning in January of 2006 as Rhythm Clutch then KoVaX, and finally KOVAC BROTHERS, they recruited some highly regarded area musicians to get started. Dave Morrison on bass, Geordie Van Nostrand on guitar, provided a rock edge and sax players Evan Olmstead and Jeff Wasserman rounded out the jazz side. A highly committed musical schedule and other interests sadly saw Morrison and Van Nostrand leave by 2008. Long time friend and band mate from the New Brown Hat era, Fell Herdeg took up bass duties adding superb pocket and fine vocal harmony. Replacing the second guitar was keyboardist and songwriter Patrick Sweeney. Sweeney expanded the harmonic texture of the band while also lending some great vocal harmony as well. “The songs seemed to come alive with this instrumentation” stated a pleased Frank Kovac. With out hesitation, some focused listening moved Frank and Jim to produce the record aptly named “Seeing is Believing”.

Narrowing down songs from the abundant collection of writer Frank Kovac, was the next step and teaming up with another old friend, renowned producer Brad Young, started the project moving at a industrious pace. The group and its’ sound is magnetic. Sweeney has simply stated that every song is unique but they are all saying, “welcome, come on in and listen”. With that in mind, KOVAC BROTHERS, is certainly one of those must have bands for your collection or a show you have to See to Believe.
