Maria and the Coins Announce the Upcoming Release of New Album Forward
Genre: Pop, Singer-Songwriter, Alt-Rock
Members: Maria Coyne, vocals/songwriter, Nick Baker, guitar, Zaq Baker, keys, Adam Maurer, bass, Sheldon Way, drums
Maria and the Coins bundle big-picture pop ambition into earnest, indie sensibility. The five-some distinguished themselves in the Minneapolis alt-rock scene by fusing singer-songwriter driven pop hooks with the vulnerability and honesty of an indie band.
Frontwoman Maria Coyne's powerhouse vocals are matched with emotive storytelling often focused on moving forward, choosing to find the light amidst the darkness, and learning to be present in each moment. While the writing features nods to Coyne’s pop, country and musical theatre roots, the music finds its sweet spot behind alternative rock-influenced arrangements. The band has opened for local and touring artists such as Betty Who, Jeremy Messersmith, Delacey, and Reina del Cid.
The band’s debut full-length album Forward will be available everywhere beginning March 5th. “Movin’ On,” the first single from the upcoming album was featured in The Current’s Friday Five and City Pages Local Frames and is available now for streaming and download.
