Cochise with Xavier Goodman
with opener Xavier Goodman, September 17 at the Whole Music Club
7:30 PM doors, 8:00 PM show
Cochise got his start after he caught the attention of his cousin and classmates while making music on a broken PlayStation in high school while living in Palm Bay, Florida. The props they gave Cochise, who's of Jamaican descent, pushed him to keep going. So, he began uploading the songs he made to SoundCloud. He delivered his first project, Pulp, in 2018, followed by Hijack, released alongside Lousho, the next year. Then tracks like "Hatchback" and "Redhead," dropped in September and November of 2019, respectively, started taking off. The music arrived shortly after his senior year of high school. When listening to Cochise's sound, expect Jamaican patois as a nod to his heritage, carefree lyrics and the ever-popular baby voice mixed with a traditional rap cadence.
Over the last year, Cochise turned into a viral sensation thanks his music catching fire on TikTok, a platform he wasn't too familiar with. "Hatchback" has over 1.6 million video creations and counting. Now, he's a Columbia Records artist—he signed in June of 2020—off the strength of that song, which currently has over 72 million Spotify streams and 12 million YouTube views. The rising artist also has another surging viral track on his hands with the $NOT-assisted "Tell Em."
