CURRENTLY STARS AS HILARY BANKS IN PEACOCK’S BEL-AIR, A NEW DRAMATIC TAKE OF THE 90s CULTURE DEFINING SITCOM THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR
R&B songstress and actress Coco Jones continues to propel her new single “Caliber” with the release of a visualizer, available today via High Standardz / Def Jam Recordings. The recent release of “Caliber” follows her highly lauded role as the new ‘Hilary Banks,’ cousin of ‘Will Smith’ in Bel-Air, Peacock’s Fresh Prince reimagining (premiered Feb. 13th). “Caliber” is the first advance track from Coco’s forthcoming debut EP, set for release later this year.
Raised in Nashville, 24-year old Coco was encouraged to pursue her passion by her mother, a singer, and her father, who played in the NFL. By age nine, Coco was recording demos that her mother would burn on CDs to introduce the youngster at auditions. Music provided her entryway into acting, first as a recurring guest on So Random! the Disney musical sketch comedy series (2011); then as the golden-voiced love interest in the Disney TV movie, Let It Shine (2012). She has stayed busy ever since, flexing her range across titles that span adventure romps, intense dramas, holiday fare, and comedy horror (Netflix’s Vampires vs. the Bronx).
