Daniel Cohen Receives ‘The Greatest Gift’ From “Kevin Costner”

“I want to thank you, Kevin Costner, for giving me the greatest gift,” sings Ireland’s ‘hardest working independent artist’ Daniel Cohen.

In his latest single, Daniel Cohen thanks American actor, writer, producer, film director, and musician Kevin Costner for being a role model and father figure growing up.

With synth-filled feel good beats, Cohen calls out popular Costner credits, interests, and character traits between repeated refrains celebrating the Hollywood icon. 

“Kevin Costner” is Daniel Cohen’s fourth song to be released over the last year, which Cohen describes as “the learning year”; This latest funky dance number was preceded by “A thousand kisses,” released earlier this year, and 2022 singles “Cosmic Collisions” (which received over 100k listens on Spotify), a cover of “Chain Reaction” made popular by Diana Ross, and “Will you ride with me …”

Costner’s love of baseball is reflected in the many major motion pictures he has appeared in such as Field of Dreams and For Love of the Game. So, when Cohen reached out to Costner to tell him what an important role the actor played in his life, he asked for a signed baseball as a memento, which Costner was kind enough to oblige.

aSanTIS: ‘You Are a Part of the Highest Form of Creation’

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
