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. 


Lyrical themes of moving forward, living in the moment, and the nostalgia for childhood that comes with growing up are woven throughout frontwoman Maria Coyne’s emotive storytelling. While the writing features nods to Coyne’s country and musical theatre roots, the music finds its sweet spot behind alternative rock influenced arrangements. 


Maria and the Coins’ 2016 EP Wide-Eyed and Restless and 2018 music video series The Live Sessions are available everywhere for streaming and download. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Maria and the Coins are currently working on their first full-length album with producer Stephen Helvig at Droptone Studio in Excelsior, MN. 


The first single titled “Movin’ On” off of the new album is available now for streaming and download. For more info, visit www.mariaandthecoins.com




City Pages Local Frames features "Movin' On" Video 
September 17th, 2019
"It’s been nearly three years since Maria and the Coins released their debut EP, Wide-Eyed and Restless, but now the folksy pop band are marking their return to wax with the new single “Movin’ On.” A bustling tune with highway ambitions, “Movin’ On” doesn’t require many visuals to communicate its push-pull story of a person reluctantly leaving their hometown. The video is unadorned, with singer Maria Coyne and her band playing in a dark room, laying their emotions bare." - Jerard Fagerberg, City Pages
