Run to the Wild with Me Video

I was honestly surprised at how a home-made video can turn out! The song is relevant to the angst of our times – I wrote it a few years ago, but it is (sadly) a reflection shaped by the destruction of the world around us. It is on the album, Wild and Free.

Wild and Free is Launched!

It was a very enjoyable evening – the CD launch party. The venue (Artisan Tap) was perfect – lovely stage, fantastic sound, lighting  and misty, foggy stage effects.

Kokoro was supported by special guests who were inspiring in various ways, as  independent, original artists determined to be authentic voices in a world of commercialised tastes.

Thank you to everyone who came along. If you didn’t get a CD on the night you can follow the merchandise link on this site (the vinyl-look CD might turn out to be a collector’s item), download here:

Festivals and Gigs

If you’ve been out and about at local festivals over the summer, you will have come across Kokoro.

From an impromtu performance in the beer tent at Exile Fest, to the fringe stage at Stoke-on-Trent Pride and a packed half a mile of music at Matlock Bath, I seem to have managed to enjoy the summer camping, swimming and singing!

These appearances have been interspersed with appearances at fund-raising events, most recently the Extra Fest, in aid of the ‘end hunger’ project.

Festivals are already appearing in the calendar so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like me to perform at your event. I’m also fairly media savvy so would be happy to be interviewed or booked for a public event.

This is an interview which was a part of the ‘You haven’t heard this music podcast’ from Yewstock in July. I really enjoyed it! Click below to hear my part, and listen to interviews from the whole festival here: https://youtu.be/EiF8o8s59XA
