About Itasca

Itasca is the pseudonym of indie folk singer and songwriter Kayla Cohen, whose wispy voice and guitar-picking style are reminiscent of the gentler branch of the singer/songwriter era. She released a handful of cassettes and CD-Rs under her own name in her home state of New York before relocating to Los Angeles and adopting the performance alias. Her full-length Itasca debut, Grace Riders on the Road, was self-released in 2012. She followed it with the home-recorded Unmoored by the Wind, which was issued by Matt Mondanile's New Images label in 2014. An eight-track instrumental cassette called Ann's Tradition appeared a year later, this time on Perfect Wave. Still led by voice and acoustic guitar, Open to Chance was her first album to feature a full band. It arrived via Paradise of Bachelors in 2016. ~ Marcy Donelson
