A little over two years ago, Coco Scott turned in her day job at Porsche for a home recording studio and a whole new way of life on a warm, secluded beach where she began her own music career from scratch. Over the span of 8 months she wrote, arranged, produced, recorded, and published each of her own demos for a whole album. She also taught herself to play the piano while she was doing it! There isn’t anything she can’t do if she puts her mind to it.
Smolder, Coco’s debut album, was recorded to analog tape and DSD256 by 5-time Grammy nominee and Blue Coast Records founder, CEO, sound engineer, and producer, Cookie Marenco in San Francisco. Coco and Cookie (and team) recorded and mixed the entire album in 6 consecutive days–something that had never been done at Blue Coast Records before.
It took the perfect combination of talents and recording perfection to pull it off, and the album is gorgeous! In fact, after only three months of sales Smolder was named the #5 Top Selling Album in 2017 at Blue Coast Music. Not only that, but Andreas Koch from Playback Designs will be using her album to demonstrate his new DREAM DAC line at the 2018 Axpona audio show in Chicago!
Coco is a force with which to be reckoned having overcome massive odds to chase her dream of being a musician. Among other difficult circumstances she grew up with an abusive father and later found herself in a toxic relationship with someone who would later become her stalker. Those experiences fueled her desire for success even more than she had innately and are tucked away in her musical inspiration arsenal. She shares these stories and the inspiration behind her music in her monthly mini magazine. Sign up for it on her website www.cocoscottmusic.com.
What’s next? Only Coco knows, but we suspect another album is around the corner for this artist! Her music is available for purchase at iTunes, CD Baby, Blue Coast Music, and Amazon. It is also on streaming services like Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, Google Play, Apple Music, and more!
