Biography


As a performer, she is always in the moment; joyful and genuine, soulful and compelling. 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 extraordinary1, beautiful2 and stunning3. Her playful and witty character, love of improvising and her willingness to engage fearlessly with the audience has made Coco Love Alcorn a leader and visionary on the Canadian music scene.

Alcorn has gained an incredible and loyal fanbase while touring across Canada numerous times, playing an abundance of music festivals (including the female inspired Lilith Fair) as well as community performances. Over the years she has worked with a diverse and notable list of artists including Ani DiFranco, Burton Cummings, 54•40, Chantal Kreviazuk, Jesse Cook, Steve Poltz, Matt Andersen, Chin Injeti (Bass is Base), Kinnie Starr, Mark Jordan, Gonzales, Lennie Gallant 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. Her latest album Joyful (Sound of Pop/Fontana North) is a sparkling alloy of jazz, soul and contemporary folk melded seamlessly into Alcorn’s own distinctive and unique sound. Her writing about love, life and social awareness creates new fan favourites including ‘Intellectual Boys’ ‘Revolution’ and ‘I Got a Bicycle’ which resonate uplifting, strong and passionate lyrics.

Born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, then growing up between Vancouver and Toronto, Alcorn represents Canada from coast to coast. With a creative family background from both her parents, Alcorn was destined to be an accomplished artistic individual. Her passion for music has fueled her to create six albums and two electronica side projects; however Alcorn’s interests have reached far past the realm of song. Currently, she has her own clothing brand Simon + Coco, a collaboration between her and her husband, that she describes as up-cycle clothing with Cococentric silkscreen designs.
