CocoRosie

Bio

...in a bathroom in Paris, we found ourselves. Steamed up windows, infinite rainy days, the kettle’s constant hiss and the weary moan of a dying ambulance summoned songs from another time...

We had split apart as sisters, abandoned one another and led completely different lives, gathering contrasting influences and tools that were unknowingly building towards the birth of CocoRosie.

Sierra began her exploration of singing with gospel and spirituals, and continued her devotion studying as an opera singer starting in high school. She received severe beatings from fat divas in Rome, NY and Paris, and, although she attained many accolades from the world of classical opera, she felt something was missing; some thirst that opera alone could never quell...

Bianca started writing songs at nine; bad love songs, poems, stories, to do lists... kept writing... tattoos, got lost in sociolinguistics, politics, fetishes. She began singing acapella; in the shower, on the corner, in dimly-lit squats and speakeasies. She fled to Paris on a whim. Desperate, spontaneous, from the Paris airport, Bianca calls to say, "Can I come stay a while?" Sierra asks why... We had spent our lives on separate planets, despite the fact that we shared the same child life, and this unplanned rendezvous was like a blind date arranged by the angels. So, over the next eight months, tucked away in a Parisian shoebox, listening to the rain, we made La Maison de Mon Rêve and CocoRosie was born.
