Having found hope and foundation in previous release Growing Pains, whilst exploring existential dread and the struggle to find her place, Siobhan Cotchin has returned now, with an introspective and inward reaching track diving even deeper into those thoughts, with Fill My Cup. On the surface, this country-grunge inspired song carries singer-songwriter traits throughout, but reaching beneath the melodies Fill My Cup is a song for those feeling lost in their own skin, struggling to make meaning in a world of constant change and upheaval. Cotchin’s lyricism shines across the stanzas, pouring out a tale of despondency – as one would when sitting at a dusty bar across from a barman.
Siobhan Cotchin has found herself with a bustling mid-2022 alongside the release of previous sparkling indie-alt, coming-of-age inspired single Growing Pains. Nominated for a Western Australian Music Award ‘Song of the Year’ award (having won the 2021 award), alongside performances with Thornbird (Vikki Thorn of The Waifs), The Grogans, Bob Evans (Jebediah), as well as landing a BIGSOUND 2022 slot, she managed to sneak into the studio with Sam Ford (POND, Abbe May, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) at his Tone City Recording Studio to finish off Fill My Cup. The track also lands as her debut release via Sam Ford’s Tone City Records label, who have just signed a distribution deal with Ingrooves Music Group (Universal Music Group).
Taking heed from trailblazers such as Kasey Musgraves and Lucy Dacus, Siobhan Cotchin is the Australian front-runner of powerful women, shaping their own sound around their influences, paying no attention to preconceived notions or genre-barriers.

“Fill My Cup is a song about being exhausted from life and wanting to know if there’s anything more than what we already have right now. It’s about my fear of not reaching my potential and trying to understand my place in the world. I have written a lot of songs about this existential dread that I think everyone feels and it really helps me cope with those thoughts. I’ve also always wanted to write a drinking song that goes a little deeper and more introspective, but is also fun and anthemic. This song is for anyone who feels a little lost and is struggling to find meaning in these insane times. It has been a crazy few years and I want people to know that they’re not alone. The recording process for Fill My Cup was obviously a great time, and was also super different to the last sessions we did for Growing Pains. Fill My Cup went through a lot of changes, and it was awesome to have Sam’s input into the track and have a different perspective in the studio. I think that is what creates the best results. We all had heaps of fun laying down the track and I’m especially proud of the vocal takes I did. I’m really starting to enjoy recording vocals, it’s not as stressful because I feel more sure of myself and able to try out new things.”

Siobhan Cotchin finds herself with a slew of shows across Western Australia, as well as interstate. Her eyes are firmly set on her Fill My Cup release show, which is set to launch Saturday, September 10th at Mojo’s Bar in Fremantle. However, a string of shows around that date will also provide Cotchin opportunity to stretch her cathartic vocal muscles and perform for fans & soon-to-be fans – sharing stages with SUPATHICK, Abbe May, Didirri, Leon Bridges, Thelma Plum, The Whitlams & more across August & September. A coveted BIGSOUND slot has also been confirmed, with Cotchin likely an act on numerous “must watch” lists before she heads home.

“I am so excited to be showcasing at Bigsound this year with so many other  incredible acts from WA! After I get back on the West Coast I am throwing a massive party on September 10th at Mojos with friends Angie Colman, Nectar and Ken Paolo and the Space Cadets! Also, Supathick and the Tone City DJs will be spinnin’ the decks. September is a pretty big month for me, I get to share the stage with some of my favorite artists including The Whitlams, Bob Evans, Didirri and I’m playing at Good Day Sunshine Festival with Leon Bridges, Thelma Plum and so many other great musicians. I’ll be flying to Nashville after that which I’m sure will get some more creative juices flowing!” – Siobhan Cotchin
