“Out of the hard times in life comes rebirth. Out of the hard times in life, we grow.”
Coco Love Alcorn’s lyrics have always hit home for me, but none more so than this line from her new album Rebirth.
I’ve recently been through one of those times in life that meld pain with beauty, and grief with gratitude…and in retrospect, this beautiful conversation a couple of months ago helped prepare me for what has come to pass.
If you already know Coco, you probably already love her. If you don’t, here’s the scoop. She’s a singer-songwriter whose style swings between jazz and pop, but as you’ll hear in this episode, her sweet spot is “quiet fire”! Her voice and her lyrics are soul lifting, the reason why several of the songs on her last album Wonderland travelled far and wide on the voices of choirs internationally.
This Soul Booth conversation is as comfortable as a chat can be, and full of spirit – just like Coco’s music. She even managed to get me singing!
Rebirth has been released since we recorded this convo, so be sure to check out the album @ cocolovealcorn.com. My personal fave is her song The Keeper, which she sings in a beautifully simple version with her ukulele in this episode. But it’s not all about the music. We also talk about fear, creativity, motherhood, and much more 🙂
As always, thanks so much for your support of The Soul Booth…and stay tuned!
