Call in to speak with the host
Detroit born Cocoa St. James started singing at the age of 2. Her family tells stories of her making up songs before she could even formulate full sentences. Her first official songwriting endeavor was an Ode to her favorite pet at the age of seven.
Cocoa honed her talent in school, church, and various show choirs. She was even privileged enough to participate on a singing tour throughout Italy. An avid lover of jazz, Cocoa sites several jazz legends as her earliest influences. Some of her favorites include Al Jarreau, Michael Franks, Jonathan Butler, and Bob James. But don't put her in a box. Her musical pallet ranges from Phil Collins, to Jay Z, to Linkin Park.
Ms. St. James is a true artist who sees singing and songwriting as therapeutic. She has already begun working on her fourth CD and intends to stretch her creativity to new heights.
Her body of work includes: Here (2011) Be (2012) The Remixes (2012) Oooh Baby –UK Remix (2013)
Her music can be found on Cdbaby.com and Itunes.com.
