Americana songwriter CoCo O’Connor is poised to release her new album, This Ol’ War, on June 8, 2018, and she’s embarked on a PledgeMusic campaign with a special message. CoCo’s PledgeMusic has two goals: 1) to help bring in funds to cover the CD and Vinyl replications costs of the new album, and 2) to contribute financial help and visibility to the work of the Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary. In the memory of Coco’s two beloved wolf hybrid dogs, Titus and Seluh, whom she raised on her 10-acre homestead outside Santa Fe, New Mexico, CoCo will contribute a generous portion of the proceeds from her PledgeMusic campaign to the sanctuary. Wolves and wolfdogs are difficult animals to keep as pets, which leads many of them to be abandoned or subjected to abuse. The Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary (SFWS) was founded in Montgomery, Texas, and rescues wolves and wolfdogs from across the US, providing a loving home to the animals for the remainder of their lives. In 2019, SFWS must build a new sanctuary that will enable them to double their capacity and expand their animal enclosures, facilities, and educational outreach. CoCo is helping SFWS achieve their dream sanctuary!
Recorded in Nashville with producer Parker Cason, This Ol’ War marks CoCo O’Connor’s return to the Nashville music world after some years spent building a home and family in Santa Fe and the American Southwest. Set for release on June 8, 2018, This Ol’ War has already garnered powerful reviews with more coming in! Though CoCo refuses to fit the sharp songwriter outlines that rule in both Santa Fe and Nashville, she brings pieces of both cultures back-and-forth to each town, creating a vision that’s wholly her own. For now, CoCo’s got the mountains and she’s got the big sky above.
