Emerging Artist: Tony Coates Brings A New Sound To Windsor’s Venues

Posted: March 6, 2012 by Windsor Zene in Band/Artist, Profiles

In a music scene that is already quite diverse, it’s great when someone can bring a unique game to the table. Tony Coates is an artist who has done just that.

He started off making his rounds of the open mic nights less than two years ago, and although he still visits those quite often, he has begun booking gigs of his own as well.

Tony’s style of acoustic guitar based hip-hop and soul helps him transcend genre barriers and find fans from every niche in the city’s scene.

From his first demo release in January 2011 it has been clear that right here is a guy with some talent for writing songs. His newest release, a demo version of his Soulful Noise EP is a collection of some of the things he was written, showcasing his ability to put his strong emotions into words, and to make you feel as he does through his songs.

Songs that always get your feet moving, the conglomeration of rap, blues, and indie rock makes for an appealing mixture when coupled with Tony’s rich, dynamic, and passionate voice. Particularly recommended are Breathe You In and The Truth.

In addition to his collections of originals, Tony frequently posts videos of himself covering artists liek LMFAO, Lil Wayne, and Carly Rae Jepsen.

Tony has a number of shows coming up, including March 16th at Milk Coffee Bar (68 University Ave. W.), and he has just been added as the opener for the This Is War album release show at FM Lounge (156 Chatham St. W., main level) on March 3rd.
