In January of 2009, lifelong brothers Jon Lambert and Jordan Taylor sat down in a small house in Olympia, Washington US and discussed the idea of playing shows as a two piece temporarily. Once people saw them playing live, the "right" person would want to join the band, right? It only took the first show, to realize that there's something special about this band as a duo. Kozo's most recent album "kozo" was recorded in 23hrs by Jack Endino. The band decided to tune up to an F standard at the last minute, very much the opposite of what alot of bands do these days.
