Excitement has been brewing for Nashville-based band COIN—Chase Lawrence (vocals/keys), Joe Memmel (guitar/vocals), Ryan Winnen (drums) and Zach Dyke (bass)— since their first single, “Run.” Their debut self titled album, produced by Grammy winning producer Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Sleeper Agent), was released in the summer of 2015.
The group has since toured non-stop with acts such as Walk The Moon, Passion Pit, Young the Giant, Neon Trees and others, perfecting their sound and energetic live performance. Billboard hailed them as ‘new wave crash-course survivors,’ destined to ‘break the Nashville mold.’ SPIN, NYLON, and Stereogum praised them as up-and-comers to watch. In May 2016, COIN released a well-received preview of their second album with an infectious new single called “Talk Too Much,” which singer Chase Lawrence has described as an impromptu change-of-pace from intensive touring: “The song came out easier than any song I've ever written. We had just come off of a two-month tour and we wanted to slow it down to the likes of 80's new wave. It’s a song about my inability to leave things unsaid.” The track has struck a resounding chord with both pop and alternative fans alike due to its presence on a multitude of Spotify and Pandora Playlists, the continued support of Alt Nation and FM stations across the country. COIN’s second album will be released in Spring of 2017.
joan is Alan Thomas and Steven Rutherford, a new indie pop duo writing modern songs inspired by 80s pop and 90s R&B, echoing music that once blasted from the boombox in your attic. The pair only met a few months ago after playing shows together while in different projects and became fast friends. Since then Alan and Steven have been writing together nonstop and recently revealed their debut single "Take Me On”, co-produced and mixed by Tim Pagnotta (St. Lucia, Walk the Moon, Wild Belle, Saint Motel).
