Skyler Cocco is a New York based singer-songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and model hailing from Floral Park, a quaint town on the Queens/Nassau County border. Cocco began writing songs in her early years, recording music compositions in her late father’s basement studio. At 11 years old, Cocco learned how to operate an eight track recording system, began programming drums and taught herself bass, guitar and piano to accompany her songs.
Cocco was first introduced to the music world as a pop artist, working with rappers and writing hooks, as well as producing beats for their collaborations. While studying studio composition at the Music Conservatory of Purchase College, she solidified her sound and transitioned towards grunge/alternative rock with slight pop tendencies. Having been influenced by the music of Nirvana, Grimes and Soundgarden, transitioning to this style was the most natural for Cocco.
Heavy guitars, dream-like soundscapes and soaring melodies are just a few of the layers that make up the grunge pop music Skyler Cocco has to offer. Her debut record titled “Reverie” (written by Cocco and co-produced with Zach Miller, ZMP Productions) is set to be released in 2017. With so much revival of iconic genres in today’s indie music, Skyler Cocco aims to bring back the raw emotion and powerful sound of 90’s grunge.
