C.OZ was originally formed in 2012 by Ginine Emily and Randy C, both seasoned and accomplished musicians/songwriters. They are known for their high energy, honest, heartfelt, and genuine performances. They have been called “Performance Art” by some and their music brings an intensity & passion that has not been heard from the Seattle area for over 25 years. They strive to bring hope to those who are suffering and help make this world a better place through the power of encouraging music.
Their first album “First and Union” has made quite an impression across the country and locally with their heartfelt lyrics and powerful music. One of their singles “Brother” is also featured on the Compilation CD “Never Forgotten” which is being sold across the country and in other countries.
