"To A Loved One" CD Review"

Westword-"To A Loved One" Review

It’s not often that you encounter an instantly satisfying record that also rewards repeated listens. Hello Kavita’s sophomore effort blows in like a lost 1972 Flying Burrito Brothers record, tumbling across the California desert. The seductively spare ten-song collection has the polish and professionalism you’d expect from such seasoned players. But it’s the tarnished spots — the blemishes and cracks, scratches and rust — that reveal the record’s dark, dusty soul and make it thoroughly addictive. From the chipper lilt of “Light Up in the Blue” to the Zen-like resignation of “The Last Time” and the wistful longing of “Colorado” (a scintillating, banjo-speckled reinterpretation of a Kavita standard, “Pensacola”), To a Loved One plays like a topographically accurate map of the human heart, with all its peaks, valleys and fascinating bumps. - Westword Newspaper

"Press Quotes"

"...smart songwriting that takes cues from Neil Young and the Beatles, with vocals that easily connect with the listener." - The Denver Post

"Dedicated and blossoming with a mature and accomplished sound, Hello Kavita is on the short track to standing atop Denver’s pantheon of musical talent." - Jonathan Bitz, Syntax Magazine

"Listen closely, and you'll hear swelling slide guitar lines that recall Mazzy Star, stark strums of an acoustic guitar with doubled, hard-panned vocals à la Either/Or-era Elliott Smith, the rollicking, ornate pop of Wilco, and the understated eloquence of Neil Halstead/Mojave 3." - Denver Westword Critic's Choice by Dave Herrera

"...Hello Kavita showed again why it’s one of Denver’s most promising acts of the moment." - Westword live review 12-21-07

"Hello Kavita. We hadn't seen these guys in a few months, but they sounded tremendous at last week's Sea Wolf show at the Larimer Lounge. The band's nuanced songwriting and solid performance almost outshone that of the evening's headliner — a difficult task indeed." - Ricardo Baca, The Denver Post 1-25-08 - --


"And Then We Turned Sideways" - 2008

"To A Loved One" - 2009



Since the beginning of Hello Kavita in 2007, singer/guitarist Corey Teruya has always had a clear vision of where this band was going. With 70’s music on the brain and plaid shirts in style, Corey needed to assemble the best local musicians Denver had to offer. Starting with Luke Mossman on guitar and Ian Short on keyboards, Hello Kavita managed to start a buzz, do some live shows and record 2008’s “And Then We Turned Sideways”. A few months before the release of “Sideways”, bassist Jimmy Stofer and Leor Manelis on drums joined the group completing the final lineup of Hello Kavita.

HK have continually sought to explore vintage and current music, a unique combo of 1970’s style songs and 70’s style recording techniques with a indie twist. “To A Loved One”, their latest full length release has gotten the band some well deserved attention nation wide. With record sales in high demand, HK have toured up and down the west coast and are headed to the mid west in early spring. Their shows continue to captivate crowds with emotional lyrics and raw energy, relentlessly redefining themselves and their body of work.
