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, collecting several more song writing awards, 250,000 YouTube hits and shared a stage with internationally reknowned artists King Charles, Bastille and The Pogues. From busking in their hometown, Canterbury, to headlining Rome’s largest unsigned music festival, CATB’s fresh 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”.
