AboutBorn in northern Italy on July 30, 1990, Eliot Pauline Sumner received a first-rate musical education from her father, Sting. She grew up in a small village in Wiltshire, England, and kept herself largely removed from the glamour and glitz of her father's career. By her mid-teens, however, "Coco" Sumner had taken a cue from her Dad by composing reggae-flavored songs of her own, many of which were posted to her MySpace page. Several labels took interest in the material, and Coco subsequently signed a multi-album deal with Island Records.
While working on her debut album, the 18 year-old Coco assembled a small band that included session keyboardist Emlyn Mailliard and multi-instrumentalist Al Shux (who produced Jay-Z's first chart-topping hit, "Empire State of Mind," in 2009). Sporting a fashionable sound that sampled equally from pop, ska, and electro-punk, I Blame Coco began releasing songs in early 2010, including a duet with the Swedish pop vocalist Robyn.
