Another Year!

It really is hard to believe that another year has gone by, and everyone is trapped in this strange, limited and challenging way of living. To be honest, with little outside stimulation it is hard to be creative, and I have been affected by this. However, I will try to engage more with this page and try to provide updates.

I did manage a new song, aptly titled Lockdown Love and made the little video in time for it to be showcased for a song-writing competition – even though unfortunately I was really struggling to sing after a very bad cold and cough that left me without a voice for  while. If you dare, you can see tihs on my youtube channel (KokoroGuanche).

In other news, singing bowls are available in the “Merch” section here, and there are still some Wild and Free Cd’s for those who would like to hear some cheery songs. Do get in touch if you  are interested in a singing bowl and  you could  listen and choose one via Zoom.

 

Happy New Year

We’re well and truly into a new year, and so many things have happened all around the world. The dreary weather over the holiday period seemed to have kept many people indoors, recovering from colds and other bugs. As well as enjoying the odd Christmas party, Kokoro has spent the time preparing for the brighter days ahead, and hopefully there will be one or two appearances at festivals later on in the year. It’s not too late to book me if you are organising an event! I’m now equipped with a new compact PA system – so I’m ready to go!

There are still a few copies of the CD available, so just send me a message or order via the link on this site, if you’d like one. I’ve written a couple of new songs – not really ready to be recorded yet but I aired one for the first time at an open mic last week.

The Toy – a new video

I can’t believe it’s a month since anything was posted here. Things have been busy though, and just to give an idea of what I’ve been up to, here’s another little “home-made” video. The Toy is a cheery song, with a catchy chorus, and is an indirect reflection on intimacy and relationships in the world in which we are living.

Wild and Free CD Launch Party

The most exciting event so far is the launch party for Kokoro’s first solo CD- Wild and Free.

The vinyl-look CD will be launched on Thursday evening, October 17th, and a few hours later, the CD will be available for streaming and digital download here: http://itunes.apple.com/album/id1481755892?ls=1&app=itunes

The track Run to the Wild with Me will also be digitally available as a single.
