Coco’s Lunch “Misra Chappu”

They say there’s always a first, right? Well, I couldn’t have asked for a better insight into A Cappella singing than from Coco’s Lunch. Yeah, Yeah, I’ve heard others do it but to then review the work was different and a rewarding challenge.

I should point out that the Melbourne all female group comprising of Lisa Young, Nicola Eveleigh, Jacqueline Gawler, Emma Gilmartin and Gabrielle MacGregor had already established their impressive vocal credentials well before their new album release “Misra Chappu”.

So folks, I put my humble singers hat on and along with headphones went into deep listening and concentration mode. These are the thoughts I came out with on the other side.

  •  A work of art really is probably the best way to describe this recording. A Cappella at its finest.
  • Intricate & well delivered harmonies along with equally intricate arrangements are a glaring standout on the 8 tracks.
  • The fact that it’s all stemming from original melodies & ideas makes this even more impressive.
  • A big wrap for the recording processes and people behind the controls too. Not an easy feat. A very successful production indeed.

The above can be added to the existing endorsements from Barry Humphries, Fran Kelly, ABC Radio National Breakfast and a host of other well knowns.

BTW – Here’s just a few inclusions you might see on their resume too. 

  • WINNER – Best Song Composed, Australian A Cappella Awards (2015)
  • Four nominations in the Australian A Cappella Awards
  • Featured on the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America’s 2015 compilation album Sing 12: This Big! along with the best A Cappella tracks from around the world.

Outstanding work Ladies.
