IN THE PAST
IN THE NOW
Thorald Koren is a voice and behavioral coach, multi instrumentalist, member of the brother duo Fransansisco, and is part of the writer/producer team Bråves.
Along with his brother Isaac, As a part of The Kin, he toured the world as both a headliner and alongside the likes of P!NK, Coldplay, Bon Jovi, and Rod Stewart, and the band’s music was featured in major movies, led to an appearance on Conan, and got them signed to Interscope/ Universal Records.
During his early career, Thorald experienced critical Obsessive compulsive disorder, which debilitated him and his ability to be fully present as himself in his life. After hitting bottom, Thorald slowly found a pathway through the madness. He created ‘Voice as a whole body instrument’ as a response to what he discovered. His experience has given him an intimate knowledge of the workings of the human brain and the emotional body.
As a vocal producer, Thorald coaches people on forming a new relationship to their brain, body and voice, guiding them to become “comfortably uncomfortable” with their own biological Alarm systems, therein allowing themselves to be radically free to express themselves fully and powerfully, and be present to the experience of singing.
