JOYFUL (2009 - Sound of Pop / Fontana North) has been a hit with fans and industry alike. Indie radio stations all across Canada have shown good support spinning many of the tracks with 'Intellectual Boys' often charting. 'Revolution' has become a favourite with many CBC hosts and was awarded a video fact grant. 'I Got A Bicycle' topped the charts at a jazz station in Quebec City and has helped to garner strong support for Coco in the cycling community. She shared the bill with Molly Johnson at the 2010 Toronto Bike Union Gala and also graced the cover of Momentum magazine in the spring of that year.
Having toured across Canada numerous times playing many a music festival (including the female inspired Lilith Fair), Alcorn has gained an incredible and loyal fan base. Over the years she has shared the stage with a diverse and notable list of artists including Ani DiFranco, 54.40, Burton Cummings, Chantal Kreviazuk, Jesse Cooke, Chin Injeti (Bass is Base), Kinnie Starr and Loudon Wainwright III.
