American Iowa-born, Paris-based singer-songwriter Coco Bans, aka Allyson Ezell, has been carving out an impressive path with her epic and tender alt-pop since her 2019 debut EP, Fantasy & Parables, garnering early support from MTV, Earmilk and The Line of Best Fit. Rolling Stone named her a live artist to watch and she has since opened sold-out shows for Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) and Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes). Follow-up single “Pray” was synced in Grey’s Anatomy, in parallel with major editorial playlists and European radio play. Signed with Warner Chappell Music Publishing, Coco Bans has already written for artists such as Woodkid, Lil Wayne, Kiddy Smile and French star GIMS. Her debut LP Chronicles of an Altered Life, co-written with Grammy-winner Hue Strother and K Major (Playboi Carti, Future) and produced by Coco Bans and London-based producer Jo Pereira, is expected in 2022.
Allyson Ezell is a musician and songwriter in total command of her powers. Think Annie Lennox and Shakespeares Sister meets St Vincent and Paloma Faith, but in a 21st century blend of optimism, nostalgia and vintage beats.
