See the forest, see the trees, the joys of getting lost in the woods.


     Minneapolis band Kazyak is the indie craft vehicle of frontman, songwriter, guitarist Peter Frey who takes us into the thick of the woods in his premiere for, "Pieces of My Map". Having made the festival circuit rounds, the new album See the Forest, See the Trees finds the group stirring up a selection of rich, heartfelt string arrangements with electric guitars, violins, banjos and strummed percussion sentiments that stretch out like the urban forest branches that embrace downtown Minneapolis. Peter's approach to song construction is to utilize every breath and instrument as a foundational musical tree trunk for budding leaves, flowers and fruits to spring from with a searching spirit for life's lost fragments.
