Kim 'CoCo' Pickering

Sax and backing vocals

From an early age, Kim had classical music training on clarinet and piano. She took up the sax at the age of 11, progressing to playing in swing bands. During the 1980s, she joined a number of rock, pop, soul and blues bands. In 1991, she was invited to join Blind Lemon by drummer Dan. At that time she was playing in four other bands, but realised that the future lay with Blind Lemon. The rest, as they say, is history!

Kim enjoys a very eclectic mix of music styles, from Jazz and swing, to funk, soul and punk and revels in live performances.
