There’s an old saying about how “you have your whole life to write your first record.” For COCO HAMES, the songs on her stunning self-titled debut poured from her pen over a sustained burst of inspiration…but they took more than a decade to live out. A deeply personal record filled with poignant ruminations on love lost and found, dreams dashed then rediscovered, these ten songs manage to pinpoint exquisite light amid life’s darkness. As the frontwoman and indomitable force behind beloved garage-pop combo THE ETTES, Hames blazed a memorable trail across the ’00s underground. Last summer, she began work on her solo album at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville. Hames co-produced the record with ANDRIJA TOKIC, who’d helped sire career-making albums for Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and others. Playing guitar, piano, and electric harpsichord, Hames was aided in her effort by bassist JACK LAWRENCE (THE RACONTEURS), drummer JULIAN DORIO (THE WHIGS) and lead guitarist ADAM MEISTERHANS (THE WEIGHT). Other contributors include veteran keyboard/organ wizard DAVE AMELS (REIGNING SOUND) and vocalists CAREY KOTSIONIS (BOBBY BARE JR.), and LITTLE MAE RISCHE (JACK WHITE).
