‘Tommy Coyle’s everyday stories and pains of the heart are shot through with raw emotion and dry humour and backed up with a really strong songwriting style. Live, with just an acoustic guitar, his shy stage demeanour and voice, which………..conveys real emotion, he is utterly compelling....’ Sandman Magazine
Tommy Coyle is a singer-songwriter from York, England. After travelling in Australia ,New Zealand and other far flung places in Europe and Asia, honing his songwriting skills and earning his keep by playing in hostels and bars he moved to London in 2011 to become a full-time musician where he founded an open mic at the Camden Eye. Here he met his new best friends and band members Stephen Slesser (drums), Joe Watkin (bass) and John Fogerty (lead guitar).
Tommy’s songs have been compared to artists such as Bright Eyes, Frank Turner and Glasvegas. This is probably because he has strong but simple melodies and lyrics delivered with passionate vocals.
The songs on his new album cover a range of topics, war (Achmed), childlessness (Without kids to grow), and depression (Everybody Loves Ya).
Recorded at Gary Hall’s Voodoo Rooms studios this new collection of self-penned material contains acoustic versions of 10 songs plus a bonus cd of 3 songs played with full band accompaniment
