About Coco Sumner

On The Artist and Her Band, I Blame Coco

She was born Eliot Paulina Sumner on July 30 1990 in Pisa, Italy - but she is now more commonly known as "Coco". She started playing music at a very early age, already writing her own songs and material by the time she was 15. Her first songs had a heavy reggae influence and pop-punk sound, which endeared her to many fans of her father Sting's famous band, The Police. In 2007 she independently released the song "I Blame Coco" as a single, and later that year signed with Island Records.

She worked for six months on writing and arranging material for what would become her full-length debut album, The Constant, which was released in 2010. Some were surprised by the change in her music, which now had a strong electropop sound and little of her original reggae/punk leanings. Even so, she found many new fans with this more mainstream musical style, which still maintained its originality thanks to her unique and rich singing voice. She supported popular band La Roux on tour and her band I Blame Coco has performed at numerous music festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Isle of White.

Coco is not the only musically-inclined offspring of Sting; her half-brother Joe Sumner is the lead singer and guitarist for the band Fiction Plane.
