The Drunken Coconut - Year in Review

Hey Coconuts,

As some of you may know, The Drunken Coconut recently celebrated their first birthday!! We cannot believe it's already been a full year and we cannot be happier how well things have been going! 

We officially launched publicly in April 2016 with no more than some social media pages, an email, and a SoundCloud channel with next to no followers. This is what we started with and nothing more. It's pretty remarkable to look back at our starting point and see how far we have come.

As much as we want to say this year was all fun and games, we can't. It definitely was not easy and there were days where we felt like giving up and moving on but our dedication and love for this industry is what made us thrive and bring us to where we are today. There were a lot (and still are) sleepless nights and stressful days but it is totally worth it. This is just the beginning for us Coconuts and we can't wait to show you what we have in store for the next year!

This is a look back at everything we accomplished as a company in the past year! (of course, we wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for all you lovely coconuts out there)
