COIN
COIN proudly call themselves a "product of the '90s". A borrowed nostalgia for the decade that isn't uncommon among Nashvillians. COIN hasn't adopted the detached smugness and angst often associated with '90s alt acts and contemporary '90s alt revival acts. They are entirely devoid of ironic, tongue-‐in-‐ cheek rock n' roll posturing or odes to the joys of slackerdom. Instead, lead singer, keyboardist, and lyricist Chase Lawrence opts for earnest songs about actual human emotions: falling in (and out of) love, worrying about the future, and missing the past. It's the same brand of wide-‐eyed sincerity found on Pet Sounds—just replace the theremin with a microKORG and the harpsichord with guitarist Joe Memmel's crisp Telecaster lines. Their songs are hopeful, but behind the spring reverb and airy synths, there's subtle regret and even morbidity. They've recently released their debut album, recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Sleeper Agent, Eric Church, Emmylou Harris, Little Big Town). The album is guitar driven and sonically mature, but still true to their synth-‐pop sensibilities
A R I Z O N A
For all the climates and cities that bring people
together, the boys in A R I Z O N A came together
as a trio in an apartment in Boston, their makeshift studio the counterweight to the lofty halls of East Coast music . In a string of
infinite sessions during their time at both Berklee College of Music and Emerson College, Nate (guitar) hopped on a session with David (keys) and Zach (vocals), and all the moving pieces came together in a way that would reincarnate itself in many different fashions before eventually becoming the group now known as "A R I Z O N A". The three songwriter/producers from Jersey shared an obsession with the far left, sometimes even obscure side of music, but were even more romanced by the brutal honesty of pop topline and lyrics. Their music - including "I Was Wrong," "Where I Wanna Be," "Let Me Touch Your Fire," and "People Crying Every Night" - creates new shapes and boundaries to span genres, time periods and styles, all focusing on the naked human tropes contained in the traditional pop narrative: love, loss, the need for raw unhinged expression.
The years and cities came and went, and it took until just last year for these old friends to point their focus finally inward. Thus, the band was formed, and they were no longer just the writers or
producers; they were the performers.

Over the past few months, the trio'smusic has incited an exponentially upward curve of massive fan engagement
and early success with tens of millions of streams across Soundcloud, Spotify,

YouTube and more. A R I Z O N A joined the social savvy co-conspirators at Atlantic Records and Artist Publishing Group at the close of 2015 and are currently working on their debut album.
