caco is an artist from a suburb you've thankfully never heard of. a jazz saxophonist by force and a vocalist at heart, his new solo effort gracefully walks the spectrum between alternative-r&b, música popular brasileira, and lo-fi.
following years of questionable soloing in early morning ensemble, barely conscious hip-hop recordings, and a life steeped in the afro-caribbean tradition, caco has formed a sound as unique as the wrinkles in his spliffs. everyone's have them, but these? these are his.
the artists namesake is his father's nickname, signifying his familial roots in music.
he released a single, and i know, in january 2021 after a long, smoky year of writing in his bed. his self-titled debut is dropping later in 2022.
caco is grateful to his influences- braxton cook, mac ayres, moonchild, and many more- as well as some friends who helped out on the way. big thanks to derick (tracks 1, 4, 6) on guitar, sen on both bass and vocals (tracks 1, 3-6), and stephen, whose last minute drum parts (tracks 1, 3, 6) brought sauce to the record. finally, there's chris, who remotely helped produce the entire ep from the picturesque state of indiana- go boilermakers. a train-based mascot might make zero sense, but caco does! at least a little :)
