CoCo & the Butterfields
CoCo and the Butterfields sprang to life in September 2011 as a humble folk trio. Nowadays they’re more accurately described as a five-strong major kick on the South East music scene, a truly colourful, energetic & crowd-stamping act to be reckoned with, performing their own unique fusion of Folk, Pop and Hip Hop, or “Fip Fok” to their fans. Within a year CATB had earnt themselves the title of the UK’s best unsigned act, (winners of Live and Unsigned 2012 ) collecting several more song writing awards, 250,000 YouTube hits and shared a stage with internationally renowned artists King Charles, Bastille and The Pogues.
Following the explosive release of their debut EP, Fip Fok, CATB filled 1200 seats at a sell out show at Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre, where the new singleWarriors launched May 2013.
From busking in their hometown of Canterbury to headlining Rome’s largest unsigned music festival, CATB’s inimitable sound and raw energy on stage has rapidly gained them a large and loyal following, making them one of the UK’s top up-and-coming bands to watch out for.
The ultimate eclectic collective, CATB find extraordinary musical integrity and balance in an ensemble of exquisite charm and quirk.
CoCo’s lyrics and guitar melodies give character to rousing songs, while Dulcima captivates audiences with her vocals, violin and homemade dresses. Jamie (aka “Euphex”) delivers rhythms on beatbox with Micah holding the line on double bass, and Handsome Rob, the banjo sensation. Creativity and personality form the bedrock for the unique musical style of a band who have “managed the almost impossible task of creating a sound that is almost entirely unique.” (Dan Lucas, Record Producer).
