Coco Columbia: MOGO 2017 on Sounds of PDX

On this episode of the show Jen Em and I welcomed back recording artist Coco Columbia. The topic of this evening’s broadcast was MOGO Music Fest 2017. Just days before taking the stage at MOGO Music Fest with GLASYS and Korgy & Bass, Coco was in studio with us talking about her current influences and how she approaches her live performances.

Before diving into talking about the music festival, we spent some time learning about Coco’s new electronic pop project with guitarist Grant Sayler. When I asked about the projects influences, she said “We are listening to a lot of, honestly, like trap music”. Coco went on to express the importance of listening to a large diversity of music to keep you growing as an artist. In a particularly personal moment, Coco spoke about the book “The War of Art” and the idea of “showing up for the muses”. It was a fascinating moment for me to see her deconstruct her own take on the creative process. Hear this and more in the podcast below.

I host "Sounds of PDX" every Tuesday from 7-9pm.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists by providing music and live show reviews. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.

I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am extremely lucky to now live in Portland, OR, where we have one of the most vibrant music scenes in the nation.
