His breakthrough debut CD "In the Shadows" (2010) features the songwriter's newest and oldest songs, capturing a range of emotions and themes. Kras gives full credit for the debut release to his producer, Ron Ross of The Magic Pipers. "I have to thank Ron for his vision and patience in making this project a reality, and for his faith in me as a songwriter. Without Ron's vast talent, this CD would never have been possible". "In the Shadows" combines elements of New Country (or Kountry), and jazz along with contemporary folk, to form what may be an entirely new musical genre that may eventually be known as KRAZZ!
