Few bands have a simple story and CoCo are no different. Established by best friends Tomas and Dulcima back in 2012, they’ve gone on to perform literally thousands of gigs, developing an enviable reputation for their exhilarating sell-out live shows as their rich and unique sound has grown and matured.
The duo began life as humble buskers on the streets of Canterbury, Kent where the would attract large crowds with their raw, acoustic and often upbeat tunes. Although the instrumentation may be delicate from time to time, the pair’s unique harmonies, led by Dulcima’s jaw-dropping vocals saw them quickly amass a following of loyal fans as they embarked upon their joint musical journey.
A career that has seen them perform at prestigious events such as the star studded Guatemalan Relief concert hosted by Oscar Isaac, to BBC Radio play and their track Old Ground landing a Hollywood movie sync! Establishing their own record label, fashion label and music festival, to hosting and what’s more breaking, a busking world record in conjunction with famed DJ Rob Da Bank and somehow, amongst all that, finding the time to self-produce their own high quality and ever ambitious music videos.
Over the past two years and between a string of successful tours, the band have been working solidly in the studio, honing their recorded sound into something they at last feel is a true testament to the experiences they’ve been through together and their life-changing journey as friends. What’s more, as we’ve all been cast into these uncertain times and gigging as we know it has had to take a slight back seat, CoCo has found an abundance of free time to further perfect their acoustic show. Hold tight, this journey isn’t over just yet…
