“She is a really gutsy singer at one moment and, at the next, can deliver a gentle treatment of a country lament.”

Fred Dubeckne, “The Country Journal.” - The Country Journal

"A cross between?"

Kallis, … sounds like a cross between Sandy Denny and Christine McVie. … an earthily romantic quality..

Casey Rea - Seven Days


Coco Kallis and Paul Miller "Through All These Years"

"Environmental Songs for Kids" Smithsonian Folkways

Coco and the Lonesome Road Band LP

New England Song - Single



She sang & performed as a kid in Maine, sort of grew up, played the Boston folk circuit, was a cast member of the Boston Company of the Rock musical “Hair”, moved to Vermont and became lead singer/songwriter for “Coco & the Lonesome Road Band“, sang back-up on other people’s recordings, did recordings of her own, did the Nashville thing, opened for a whole bunch of stars, did her own concerts/radio/tv , won awards, had a bit part in a movie, appeared twice on Conan O’Brien and got very good at runaway sentences!

Then, after being a full-time musician, that many years?... she spent eighteen years having a great time teaching music in a K-12 public school. Okay, so she’s been around a while. All the more experiences to show up in her music.

Now at the leading edge of the Baby Boomers, Coco has decided life has gotten shorter and has gone back to full-time writing and performing. Gotta finish it all up doing what you love the most!

She brings a folk, rock, and country background to her original songs. She also covers some of her favorite writers…John Prine, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Dylan, etc. Smithsonian Folkways released her “Environmental Songs for Kids” cd. Coco also occasionally does a performance of Scottish songs including originals from her “New Songs of Auld Scotland.”

While she has fun performing solo, she very much prefers to do it with her co/writer & performing partner, Lafe. See us at Coco & Lafe. Cheers!
