Introducing… Coco Favre Review – NZ Musician, June/July 2015.
Coco released a new single in 2016 ‘Heart of an Angel’. Available from CD Baby.
‘Heart of an Angel’ is my first original song, written by my beautiful daughter Kira who was only 10 years old at the time. She was too shy to sing it herself so she played it on the guitar humming the melody to me. I loved it instantly and could hear that this was going to be an amazing song. Kira and I worked on re-writing the original lyrics and structure and my husband Andy played guitar on the recording, along with Tony Strong from Soundfarm who produced the song. It was such an amazing journey…’
