Find­ing his niche ini­tially in the World Mu­sic scene, Coggins went on to per­form reg­u­larly with most of Sydney’s African artists, in­clud­ing Afro Moses (Ghana), Chris Gudu (Zim­babwe), Keyim Ba (Guinea) and Dereb De­salegn (Ethiopia), Yas­min & Fanous (Su­dan), and Chosani Afrique (Sene­gal).

Coggins is fea­tured on more than ten al­bums and has reg­u­larly toured Aus­tralia with Chris Gudu and Afro Pamoja, both as a sup­port act for vis­it­ing in­ter­na­tional artists Hugh Masekela and Jah Prayzah, and in their own right as a head­line act.

Since 2014, Coggins has per­formed more than 100 shows with award-win­ning jazz/rock group The Subter­raneans, and more than 50 shows with Sonic May­hem Orches­tra.

In 2017, with the sup­port of the Aus­tralia Coun­cil, Coggins toured the North­ern Ter­ri­tory with Chosani Afrique, per­form­ing in Dar­win, Kather­ine, Ten­nant Creek, Alice Springs, and Mel­bourne.
