Sundance 2020 Composer Spotlight: Coco Reilly
Film: The Starr Sisters
Coco Reilly is a singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist. She began composing original music as a child and was selected to perform as first chair flute in New York’s all-state orchestra by the age of 10. After forming her first band a few years later, she signed a record deal and spent her high school years recording and touring as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. She has since continued playing music in various forms and projects (composing, co-writing, producing, touring and performing) and scored her first short film in 2016 for Bridey Elliott’s critically acclaimed Affections (Sundance Film Festival, Jury Award IFF Boston,...). She is returning to Sundance this year for her second collaboration with Elliott, scoring the short doc, The Starr Sisters with Eric Slick (Dr. Dog). A recent transplant to Los Angeles, she looks forward to expanding her repertoire as a composer for film and TV. Her debut solo album is slated for a spring 2020 release.
