from josé luis vílchez and cora rose
In “Flight & Fire”, Cora Rose first flexed her muscles as a record producer and audio engineer. It was Cora’s creative foray into uncharted ground, breaking away from her acoustic songwriter roots and delving into thick beats and electronic elements. It is also Cora’s most collaborative album to date, featuring co-writes and co-productions with talented producers Akshay Narang, Stephen Turney, and Michael Hardesty.
“Flight & Fire” was produced in tandem with “Time Marches Forward”, an acoustic album with a starkly opposing sound, reflecting the multi-faced nature of Cora’s tastes and creative output. Produced over the period of three years, “Flight & Fire” lived with Cora as she traversed life stages that led her across the world.

& Cora Rose
We are a pair of artists with the vision of understanding the world through the lens of our art.
We are in the midst of the largest art project either of us has ever taken on, Art We There Yet. We are driving 30,000 miles across North, Central, and South America aboard a school bus converted into an art and recording studio on wheels. We are creating art and music inspired by the Americas, and we are providing free arts programming in underserved communities along the way.
The goal of the project is twofold. First, to use art to highlight our shared humanity and emphasize that diversity is our greatest strength. Second, to provide valuable arts programming (murals, workshops, performances) for free in communities experiencing a lack of arts funding.
A key way we are funding the Art We There Yet project is through the sale of our music and art.
Thank you for your support!
