Exceptional Nashville-based pop artist Kohanna searches for the meaning of real love on ‘Past Lives’

While she gazes at the ceiling with the tissues right by her side wondering why her lover is acting so shady, Kohanna knows that she needs to look into an elevated place to work out what her heart is feeling right now on ‘Past Lives‘.

Kohanna is an 18-year-old Northern Virginia-born indie-pop singer-songwriter and pianist who has recently made the move to thriving Nashville to chase her dreams and find those healing waterfalls.

At the young age of just 5 she had been classically trained on the piano and in later years picked up the guitar and ukulele.” ~ Kohanna

As her illuminatingly genuine vocal capabilities rise up so wonderfully while you close your tired eyes and listen intently to the message this determined young woman is projecting, Kohanna is quite outstanding on a story that will be relevant to those who have been with someone who isn’t giving you 100%. In a time when there are so many people who like to play the field, this is a reminder to make sure that you are only letting your inner soul be exposed to those who truly want the best for you.

Past Lives‘ from Northern Virginia-born indie-pop singer-songwriter and Belmont University student Kohanna, is an honest and accurate portrayal of romantic life in 2022. With many temptations and distractions at every corner, it really takes two special souls to connect as one to light up the sky like a legit charger. The path to this place is hard and there will be many detours and sand dunes to cross through, but staying true to yourself and your values is the only way to stay faithful to your priceless heart, that needs to remain in your own hands.
