In April 2016, Kramer released his first full-length LP collaborating with JUNO Award Winning Producer and dear friend Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Yukon Blonde, Sleepy Sun). Featured on the record were also the musical styling’s of Kathryn Calder of The New Pornographers and Geoff Hillhorst of The Deep Dark Woods. For the Sun, embodies a change in direction taking Kramer’s recognized folk sound and adding experimental song structure and lush, psychedelic soundscapes, all the while maintaining intriguing lyrics and catchy, clever hooks. This release was followed up by two very successful tours in the west and the signing to Oscar Street Records.
Kramer has just released a homemade 4-track concept EP (Glory) where he spent hours tweaking a new, western tinged style of psych rock. Pushing forward, this project promises to reveal an even more mature and experimental sound that is slowly becoming Kramer’s trademark.
