Mar 9: Coco Love Alcorn with opener Benjamin Williams
Coco Love Alcorn has always followed her spirit, but never so literally as with her latest album, Wonderland. The songs spring from her personal journey, but true to her nature, Coco offers a universal interpretation that invites all listeners to jump in and sing along.
During a 5 year break from heavy touring to raise her daughter Ellie, Coco began working on a new album. She wanted to explore songwriting from a new perspective. Coco was curious to see what would happen if she put down her guitar and wrote with just her voice. She began a journey of layering vocals and rhythms on a 5 track looper. In the fall of 2014 she released a video of herself performing one of these first looper layered songs, The River.
Something amazing and unexpected happened, the video started to spread across the internet and into the world of community choirs. These choirs started to learn Coco's looper arrangement and perform The River in their own concerts. Coco has always loved group singing and encouraging anyone who wants to sing to do so, but this grassroots spread of 'The River' was a complete surprise. To date there are about 20 choirs singing 'The River' across Canada, the States and even in the UK.
