Shannon Rose’s excitement at teaming with CoConi cannot he hidden. ‘CoConi has overcome so much in her life and has become a superstar at an incredibly young age. I am thrilled to be able to help to take her to the next level with the release of her newest album, ‘Venusian Butterfly.’”
“Venusian Butterfly” is a collection of twelve original compositions, representing CoConi’s musical journey from a confining Chrysalis, metamorphosing through the stages of self growth, inner understanding, realization to freedom of flight as a beautiful vibrant butterfly. Produced and mixed by Simon Efemey (of Orson, Wildhearts and Wonderstuff fame), buoyant tracks such as ”Say It Again” and ”Dynamite” contrast with darker songs of past love losses and heartache including “Taking The Blame” and ”Sarah”. CoConi has been compared musically to the quirky energy of Kate Bush meets the rockier Evanescence with a pinch of Tori Amos in the vocals.
