(Halifax) Coco Love Alcorn kicks off a cross-Canada tour April 30th in Vancouver to introduce songs from her upcoming album, “The Spirit Sessions.” Coco is spending this spring and summer playing music festivals and intimate concerts throughout BC and Nova Scotia, with festival stops in New Brunswick and Ontario.
In support of “The Spirit Sessions", Coco has launched a crowdfunding campaign through PledgeMusic. Coco has spent the last year and a half writing folk, soul and gospel songs with the human spirit as her muse, and is excited to head out on tour to share these new songs, spread the word about the campaign and "The Spirit Sessions" project.
"The spirit is something that’s incredibly hard to put into words but I'm digging deep to find the words that feel right to me. For all the things I can’t find words to say, I'm borrowing from traditions of gospel and folk and soul to express myself through music."- Coco Love Alcorn on "The Spirit Sessions"
Coco is a versatile performer, vocalist, improviser, and songwriter. Throughout her career she has explored diverse musical genres from R&B and pop to jazz, folk, blues and soul. Her new project, “The Spirit Sessions” synthesizes all of these genres into a distinct musical statement that will entertain and inspire and isscheduled for release in 2016. Having toured Canada numerous times, and playing many a music festival (including the female inspired Lilith Fair), Coco has gained an incredible and loyal fan base.
