In her new CD, Sometimes I Feel Too Much, Cosy weaves deeply felt experiences from her own life into finely crafted musical tapestries - connecting the personal to the universal, and inviting us to a deeper experience of our own life.
Known for her modern interpretations of myth, the first song, Eurydice Goodnight, is a goodbye to her home in the American southwest and parallels the story of Orpheus’ and his lost wife with saying goodbye to a beloved landscape.
The second track, I Am Your Landlord is a tip of the hat to the Texas swing of Asleep At The Wheel and The Austin Lounge Lizards and includes a full horn section. The bass line is driven by Cosy’s bluesy percussive guitar style which is the bedrock for all of her songs. A former student of 6 string luminaries such as Guy Van Duser and Eric Schoenberg, she has been called one of the best women guitarists on the acoustic scene.
Linda's Song (We Sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow) is a tribute to Linda Schrade who passed away from complications from ALS in August 2015.
Napoleon - A Musical is the latest in Cosy's "despots of history" song list. With a somewhat demented descant singing behind her "Waterloo.....Guillotine....Wellington....send the little fiend off to Elba".
