On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, Los Angeles based artist Cayo Coco released Gently, Dreamer to release of old beliefs, with the intense lyrics written from the perspective of the wounded inner child.
The solo project of multi-instrumentalist and producer, Lumen Loraine, originally from Indiana, and now based in LA, Cayo Coco, shares stories of healing and inner exploration.
Threaded throughout everything Lumen creates are themes of hope and wonder as the process of making music is a celebration of joy for him.
Cayo Coco’s single, Gently, Dreamer, is the first to be released from his new album, which details the inner work he has been doing over the past two years.
Serving as a release of old beliefs, the intense lyrics of Gently, Dreamer were written from the perspective of the wounded inner child. Towards the end of the song, the message completely flips, switching back to his present self and expressing from a state of greater freedom and acceptance. The creation of the song was a purging experience for Lumen, who performed every instrument on the track.
Cayo Coco has garnered millions of streams for his music to date, landing support from Spotify editorial playlists and has also been featured on Pharrell’s Apple Music podcast, OTHERtone. Hoping that his music encourages people to look inside, he explains that going within is a beautiful, worthwhile adventure and urges listeners to join him on this magical journey.
I experienced multiple life changing soul connections over the last 3 years. Each of them shined an awareness into the depths of my being, and I saw many things I had been avoiding in myself. A lot of my songs are about the magic that meeting those people unlocked within me. This music is for them, myself, and anyone else who is healing and is on the path.
With any of my songs, if you ask me what I played or how I did it, it’d take me a minute to figure it out. I don’t know keys or theory, I just know how to have fun and get lost in the sonic landscape.
