Coco Love Alcorn sings joyful soul; a combination of her diverse musical influences including Jazz, Pop, R&B and Folk. Her voice is hailed as ‘extraordinary’ (Vancouver Province), ‘beautiful’ (Canadian Musician) and ‘stunning’ (Star Phoenix). Her playful and witty character, love of improvising and her willingness to engage fearlessly with the audience has made Coco Love Alcorn a mainstay on the Canadian music scene.
Her latest offering is called IAN and COCO and as the name suggests, is a collaboration project with Halifax singer songwriter Ian Sherwood. It features 8 tracks recorded in the attic of Coco’s house in Owen Sound, Ontario. Right in the centre of town they were three blocks from a coffee shop and music store and two blocks in the other direction their feet found a trail winding through trees and fields. It was the perfect inspirational setting to lock into the heart of each song and take some playful risks.
Having toured across Canada numerous times playing many a music festival (including the female inspired Lilith Fair), Alcorn has gained an incredible and loyal fan base. Over the years she has shared the stage with a diverse and notable list of artists including Ani DiFranco, 54.40, Burton Cummings, Chantal Kreviazuk, Jesse Cooke, Chin Injeti (Bass is Base), Kinnie Starr and Loudon Wainwright III. She has enjoyed success in the realm of music licensing, with multiple television song placements in The Dead Zone and The L Word.
