From riding horses in the wild forests of Provence to singing into sleepless sunrises on London’s streets after nights dancing, Phoebe Coco can hear music wherever she goes. Growing up in a household where music making is a way of life, with uncle Pedro Ortiz drumming for David Bowie and Mick Jagger, her mother touring in Hair The Musical, and dancing in Diana Ross videos- all of which remain major influences to this day.
Now a part of London’s thriving scene, since graduating from Brighton’s Art University, Music & Visual Arts, with alumni of composers; Bat For Lashes, Metronomy, Dream Wife to name a few. Her history as a songwriter and composer can be traced back to a variety of music across the field, her practice with Breathing Space Collective, experimental sound performance collective who score site specific works of music, outside the conventional means of creation while working as a composer for film/ theatre. With both folk and electronic influences, Phoebe Coco captivates audiences with lyrical charm, from intimate settings of living rooms in Sofar Sounds, danceable music venues such as Sebright Arms, and Kings Head Members Club, to festivals such as Iceland Airwaves and Shambala.
In November 2021 Phoebe was a recipient of a Sound and Music Seed Award – read a Q+A with Phoebe here.
