"Repent To Karma" debuts the songwriting of Charles Kavoossi - lead singer and guitarist of Kavoossi. The album features 12 dynamic, catchy indie-rock tunes which were co-produced by Aaron Wold and Charles Kavoossi at Mobtown Studios in Baltimore, MD, hometown to Kavoossi. Aside from the standard arrangements of guitar, bass, keys, percussion, and vocals, "Repent To Karma" features guest artists from around the Baltimore area who have seasoned the album with theremin, horns, banjo, violin, lapsteel, and more. Songs like the single, "Out of Time," have been described as Beatle-Esque, hashing out unique harmonies and chord changes under the guise of a catchy pop rock tune. On the flip side, heavier tracks such as the title track "Repent To Karma" bring an electric punch to this collection of songs, resembling mid-era Foo Fighters. As the album continues, "Blue-Eyed Jesus" shuffles a folkier side of Kavoossi into the collection, while "Christine" harnesses a barber shop quartet-turned-blues band experience, eventually spitting you out at the end, with "Purple", an indie-rock ballad to send the listener off.
Kavoossi is often compared to artists such as The Strokes, Weezer, Cake, and The Shins, notably for the vocal style of Charles and his approach to songwriting and composition.

"Charles Kavoossi is more than just a singer or a songwriter from Baltimore. As a multi-instrumentalist with a passion for
composing, his songs pack unique and technical experiences between catchy choruses that are bound to get stuck in your head. Growing up a child of the 90s, Charles brings a refreshing creative energy to a seemingly familiar new sound."
