Music at Friends welcomes Ginger Coyle to our concert series! www.gingercoyle.com
“A set from Ginger Coyle is like a hangout session with your best friend, one you haven’t seen in ages, yet as soon as you get together, you continue the last conversation like the chasm of time and distance never existed. Indeed, familiarity is the key here. You know you have heard these melodies, but where? Another era? Another life? Another reality? Surely, it’s a recognizable tune, but at the same time a breath of fresh air and an opportunity to reconnect with feelings not felt in quite some time. Musically, Coyle embraces many of the genres that have grown from the honest roots of American blues: R&B, funk and even reggae, gospel and jazz make their presence known throughout her performances and recordings. She wraps this up in a blanket of pop-filtered soul, tearing through veil after veil of layered emotion channeled through her confident delivery and a venerable charm that nods to predecessors both recent and long-celebrated, stopping short of fitting into any cookie-cutter template of current musical trends. Vocally she attacks with attitude and wisdom, framing her lyrics with a rebellious demeanor and an open heart. With an arresting presence on stage, and a sophisticated understanding of her fore-bearers, consider your enjoyment a foregone conclusion. ”
