SoKo (born Stéphanie Sokolinski) is a French singer and actress. She was born in Bordeaux in France to a Polish family and has been called Soko as far back as she can remember. She has appeared in several French movies, and got her start as a singer after she asked the director if she could sing on screen.
In 2007 she got a big hit in Denmark with her song "I'll Kill Her" after the radio program The Black Boy Scouts started hyping the song. The song reached number one on the chart of the Danish version of the iTunes Store and was the number one song in rotation on radio. In October 2007 her music was featured in Stella McCartney’s fashion show in Paris. Since early 2008 she is also played in Germany by 1LIVE, first only at night in 1Live Plan B but later, due to high demand, troughout the whole day.
She has not put out a full album, but has released an EP "Not Sokute" with five songs. Nevertheless, she has had sold out concerts in Denmark.
1. The Dandy Cowboys
2. Shitty Day
3. I’ll Kill Her
4. Take My Heart
5. It’s Rainning Outside
