This emerging rock/country singer just finished her summer tour on the heels of her heartfelt blues/country rock album debut, Turquoise. Coco kicked off her tour by opening for Billboard country music artist Phil Vassar at Chingawassa Days Festival in Marion, KS on June 4 and conclude at the Center Stage Santa Fe on August 20 while opening for multiple Grammy and Americana Music Association Award-winning musician Jim Lauderdale.
Coco also shared the stage with the likes of Billboard country artist Casey Donahew, and the Oak Ridge Boys with Hillbilly Authority on the tour – just to name a few.
Coco’s band known as the Redeemers, features some heavy hitters including prolific songwriter Billy Harvey playing guitar and bass, and singing background vocals. He’s currently in the studio and on tour with Patty Griffin. Over the years Billy Harvey has broke into the Top 100 on the CMJ charts and is also working as a producer with the likes of Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Slaid Cleaves, and Steve Poltz. Alongside Harvey, Dony Wynn plays drums. As a master rhythmatist, Wynn has performed with countless world class musicians. Fellow collaborators include the likes of Dr. John, Robert Palmer, Patti LaBelle, Brooks and Dunn, and Robert Plant - among many others.
Following in the footsteps of Dolly Parton and Bonnie Raitt, Coco's album features five song collaborations by her and the project's producer Margaret Becker, a Nashville based four-time Grammy nominee and four-time Dove Award winner who has had 21 #1 Christian radio hits.
After receiving local airplay, Empty in California, which is the lead single from her debut album, is quickly gaining traction and has being promoted to Americana and Triple AAA stations nationwide. Coco's inspiration comes from Santa Fe in particular, where she's lived for over 15 years and she and her husband are raising a unique extended family that includes Titus and Seluh, two friendly but shy high content wolf-dogs they've had since they were ten days old. A true environmental minimalist, Coco lives up on a mountain, just down from an honest to goodness goldmine, with a breathtaking view of New Mexico's state capital and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the southernmost subrange of the Rockies. Hailing from a small town an hour outside of Birmingham, Alabama, Coco was playing bluegrass at five and started writing songs at age ten. She lived close to the legendary music town of Muscle Shoals.
