Coco Kimmie meditates on positivity with new release
NAMASTE Free All Day
By Jenna Gengler
VIRGINIA - When Covid-19 hit in 2020, Coco Kimmie, like many of us went in search of some kind of emotional solace. For her, that place was music, and from that, Kimmie was able to put together a collection of songs that both speak to the soul and remind us to focus on positivity. Her latest project, a debut EP titled NAMASTE Free All Day, provides a truly freeing and introspective journey through the soul. It is a must listen.
Before pursuing a career as a professional musician, Kimmie served the United States Air Force as a Space and Missile Officer for 21 years. Since her retirement, she has taken her love of music and turned it into a full career as a brilliant singer-songwriter. When Covid-19 hit soon after this began, she used the opportunity to build her solo career. This led to the release of several hit singles including her latest release, “COME OVER”.
Now Kimmie is excited for the release of her debut EP, NAMASTE Free All Day, on July 1. “The title really encapsulates the feeling of the album,” she said. “Everything was virtual when I wrote these. There was a lot of anxiety and I felt the need to meditate on positivity.” With Namaste being a way of recognising life, the title of this EP is the perfect way to define it.
“Even though the songs were all written during Covid, the messages are still relevant,” She explained. “It’s a mindset. We have to create our own sense of peace among chaos.”
One of the songs that Kimmie notes as a great example of what the EP represents is the track “TIME TO BREATHE”. This song does an incredible job of taking its listeners on a meditative journey, reminding them of what is important on the most basic level. “No matter what it is that you’re going through, you have to breathe.”
Overall, NAMASTE Free All Day is a collection of songs with one intention: free yourself from negativity. “Despite all of it, focus on the positive,” Kimmie said. “Live your life to the fullest, express yourself in ways that make you feel good and share that with the rest of the world.” This EP is truly one of positive energy and is perfect for anyone looking to focus on the good.
Kimmie accredits her mentor, who was an integral part of the creation of NAMASTE Free All Day and an important part of her continued growth and development as one of the unique independent artists of today’s music industry.
Following the July 1 release of NAMASTE Free All Day, Kimmie is looking forward to releasing more singles this year, as well as further ventures into the world of film and music. She is definitely an artist to keep an eye out for.
