Wonder woman Corinne Gfeller – one half of Swiss sibling rock duo Zibbz — brought “Stones” to the Eurovision stage last year. Now she and her guy have brought life into the world with their beautiful baby boy Bowie.
But not even his momentous arrival can slow this rock diva down. She and her brother recently released “You and Me (Against the World)” — a feel-good track about being there for those who need you most. As Coco sings: “Wherever we go, whatever it takes, I’ll be right there for ya!”
And we are most definitely here for this. Coco recently caught up with wiwibloggs to talk about her new arrival, her year after Eurovision and the duo’s new single. Rock on and let’s do this…
Hello, Zibbz! On behalf of wiwibloggs we want to congratulate you Corinne on your new arrival!
Hey and thank you! We love wiwibloggs and can’t believe it’s already been a year since we got to stand on that big stage!
You have named your little one after an iconic music legend. What significance did David Bowie have in your life?
David Bowie has definitely changed our world for the better. He dared to absolutely be himself and take paths less travelled back in the day when no-one dared to. I hope my son grows up to be exactly who he wants to be — no matter what people think. And he was born on the night of the Eurovision final! Crazy huh?!
That is amazing — a Eurovision baby! Somehow you’ve also managed to put new music out around the same time. Is “You and Me (Against the World)” about your son?
I actually wrote “You & Me Against the World” for a friend who was going through a tough time. But it can be about my son too. It’s basically for those people who have our back, no matter what.
Are there any songs that you enjoy singing to little Bowie?
I find myself making up songs for little Bowie every day…although I hope no-one ever hears them ‘cause they’re mainly about pirates and elephants and changing nappies.
Is your brother Stefan going to be on hand for some serious baby-sitting duties?
Yes Stee will definitely be on babysitting duty for the rest of his life! Haha. He was the first one I called after Bowie was born!
On May 8 — the one-year-anniversary of your Eurovision performance — you shared an Instagram pic with the caption: |”A year ago today I got to be my own superhero. Taste ur limits, face ur fears. Even if u fail. It’s worth it. I promise.” Have your lives changed much since and is there anything you have taken away from your Eurovision experience?
Yes, a lot has changed for us since Eurovision. We really feel fulfilled as artists. It’s a crazy experience and we’re so proud of our performance, no matter the outcome. That was the goal and we grew as artists and people from that experience!
Thank you very much for your time and all the best!
