Cuco is an 18-year old self-produced Chicano singer out of Los Angeles, CA, specifically the city of Hawthorne. Cuco, born Omar Banos, first began playing music at the age of 8 years old. After teaching himself how to use Ableton, Cuco was eager to start independently releasing his own music once finishing high school. In 2016, Cuco released his first mixtape Wannabewithu -- a collection of teenage heartbreak over abstract chords, lo fi synths, ambient guitars, punchy drums, and lead trumpets that resonated with thousands of music lovers everywhere. Mere months later, Cuco welcomed his newfound fans, or "Cuco Pebbles," with a follow up mixtape Songs4u (2017). Having only played So-Cal DIY house shows until recently, Cuco was shocked to sell out his first two venue shows at the Hi-Hat in Highland Park and the Constellation Room in Santa Ana.
