Meet the singer who left her band, record label and life in Los Angeles to move home to Copenhagen and go solo.
On a Tuesday afternoon in a dark, smoky bar in Copenhagen, regulars chat about everything and nothing. No one pays much attention to a young woman in the corner booth, playing with the sleeve of her fluffy sweater as she talks.
Coco O doesn’t impose herself on a room. In fact, the Danish singer-songwriter comes off as a little shy. But her voice—and what a voice—is her talent. It’s taken her on a journey from being on a major label and living in Los Angeles, to having no label and living back in Copenhagen, on the cusp of releasing a solo album.
