Nashville indie rockers "COIN" are gearing up to release their second full length, named "How Will You Know If You Never Try." COIN gained mainstream media attention with their single "Run" back in 2015. Last year in May, they gained an even bigger following with their addictive tune, "Talk Too Much" which was featured on almost every streaming platform on Indie playlists. Now, COIN are set to release their sophomore album out 4/21.
I recently got married! This workshop is based on the journey I went on whilst organizing my wedding. I have organized many events in my life but planning my own wedding day was a whole new ballgame. All of the sudden every decision became very personal.
When your debut album is released on the taste-making underground label Stones Throw and declared fantastic by both John Mayer and Kanye West, you’re unbelievably cool and completely under the microscope. Such is the story of Mayer Hawthorne, the Ann Arbor, Michigan resident who early on did a lot of hip-hop things and such, but for the purposes of his second album and debut for the major label Universal, he’s the neo-soul singer with a gifted voice who uncannily sounds like a ‘60s-era Temptation given the 2011 ability to drop an F-bomb. That may sound like Cee Lo Green, and there’s no doubt that How Do You Do stands in the shadow the Goodie Mob member who got there first, but this particular bespectacled singer looks like a Wall Street intern, making his Motown jones all the more unexpected, and for some, suspect. On top of it, he retains a crate-crawling nerd’s love of nostalgic soul that’s very Stones Throw, so expect some overly authentic numbers where the adherence to an aesthetic is an arguable obstacle.
