Coco et Co. finds its roots 

Andrew Sisk's new project helps him get back to the pieces of music he loves.

Andrew Sisk's move to Montreal has helped him musically reconnect. "I have been recording a lot at home over the last year with my partner Miranda," writes Sisk from the heat wave city. "It's helped me get back to all the reasons I like making music." Sisk, creator of Halifax band Share, says he's always played in bands because he loves music, but "there is so much work involved in having a band that isn't creative that you end up spending a lot of time writing grants and whatnot more than making music." Sisk stresses that his new project, Coco et Co., has been a solely creative one so far. He says the band's music will be released at cocoetco.bandcamp.com, with the option of people paying what they'd like or leaving a donation. Working on a project that's not business driven means Sisk will be teaching this fall for a day job while he releases his music online, but he's solidly happy with what this means. "At this point in time, I can't imagine a better way to be living happily than cutting out all the things about the music industry that make no sense."
