"The Pomegranate Seed" is the soundtrack to Cosy's one-woman-show . ("THE POMEGRANATE SEED - An Exploration of Appetite, Body-Image and Myth in Modern Culture"). This cd features 16 superbly crafted songs weaving the ancient Greek myth of Persephone into modern-day America.
"The Pomegranate Seed" is a pastiche of stories: how to turn lost innocence into gained wisdom and maturity, how to find our true selves. In post Roaring-90's America, this is a welcome and empowering collection of songs - reminding us that tough times can be seen as a journey of mythic proportions.
After the title cut, a modern re-telling of Persephone's abduction to the underworld set to a traditional British Isle's ballad, the cd continues with a series of songs about how women relate to their bodies. In "Dorothy and Eve", The Wizard of Oz's Dorothy discusses appetite and happy endings with Eve from the Garden of Eden. "Barbie" is a humorous fictional letter to the Mattel Corporation with suggestions for a more anatomically reasonable Barbie doll; "All Alone With a Bathingsuit" encapsulates most women's dreaded experience of trying on the first bathingsuit of the summer; and in "Iphigenia" a young girl hospitalized with anorexia compares her own story to the ancient tale of Iphigenia from the Trojan War, who was sacrificed so her father's ships could sail off to war.
"The Pomegranate Seed" is a cd in two acts. WIth a driving guitar riff, the second act begins with "Demeter's Lost Daughter" : 'Follow me down to the River Styx/ Look deep into the water/ when Persephone appears on the riverbank/ Tell her, I am another lost daughter'. But these are not the songs of victims. After "A Bad Cliche", the haunting story of a girl dealing with a sexually inappropriate uncle, comes the anthemic "Survivor", which moves beyond self-identification as a survivor to the ability to see beauty in the world in spite of its darkness.
Known for her wry social commentary on women surviving media, culture and life in general, Cosy combines this with the ability to write songs with an honesty that opens hearts. Her most impressive effort to date,"The Pomegranate Seed" showcases some of her best writing and studio performances.

Wendie, MSW Visions Counseling

What powerful messages for those of us recovering from eating disorders- and suc
A caring friend who heard you in concert shared her CD- I kept it so long I bought her this new one! My favorite is "Little Train that Could", I do remember that song from childhood, and so need to give myself permission to slow down. I was also in the "Fight Club", and survived- to be a counselor to those with eating disorders. I am in the process of creating a healing center in the country... Cosy, someday the women in the day programs there will be singing your songs as they become well!

A salute to women of all body types and experiences!
I'd seen Cosy in concert a few years back and was delighted with the songs on this CD that she produced since that concert. She attacks the monster of body hatred with turns of humor and powerful imagery, and also sends the message to girls and women that we should never let ourselves be buried by the shame from "falling". We can learn from all our life experiences, and the lessons may be very surprising and mysterious indeed!

Cosy's songs are truly engaging
I’m drawn in by so much in her songs that is familiar or that I can relate to. The only thing better then listening to her CD is to see her perform in person. Cosy is funny, serious, and down to earth. She grabs your total attention. She delivers thought provoking subject matter that can really make you think, that raises your awareness, that can lift your spirits and often just plain old make you smile. It’s all wrapped up in good musicianship. Her CDs are high on my list of gifts to give.
