Excitement has been brewing for Nashville-based band COIN—Chase Lawrence (vocals/keys), Joe Memmel (guitar/vocals), Ryan Winnen (drums) and Zach Dyke (bass)— since their 2015 single, "Run." Their debut self titled album, produced by Grammy winning producer Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Sleeper Agent), was released in the summer of 2015 and established COIN as a band bred for widespread acceptance.

Chase and Joe first crossed paths at Nashville's Belmont University, where they sat next to each other in a music theory class. Soon after the two decided to try writing music together, Ryan and Zach were introduced to them through mutual friends. The band then decided that they needed recorded music in order for promoters to book them to play live, so they recorded four songs at their school and released them for free on the internet. When they started playing local shows around Nashville, COIN quickly attracted a highly enthusiastic and loyal live following.

The group has since toured non-stop with acts such as Walk The Moon, Passion Pit, Young the Giant, Neon Trees and others, perfecting their sound and energetic live performance. Billboard hailed them as 'new wave crash-course survivors,' destined to 'break the Nashville mold.' SPIN, NYLON, and Stereogum praised them as up-and-comers to watch, as 2015's "Run" became a heavy rotation pillar on Sirius XM radio's Alt Nation, (the 5th most spun song of the year for the popular radio platform). Snapchat included them in their 'Best Of The Year' artists' list and The Atlantic cited them as one of their 21 bands to check out. The band has also played memorable showcase slots at summer music festivals such as Lollapalooza, Shaky Knees, and Firefly that have created unrelenting anticipation for their sophomore album, which they are currently working diligently on in Nashville, Los Angeles, and New York in between tour dates.

In May 2016, COIN released a well-received (and quickly growing) preview of their second album with an infectious new single called "Talk Too Much," which Chase has described as an impromptu change-of-pace from intensive touring: "The song came out easier than any song I've ever written. We had just come off of a two month tour and we wanted to slow it down to the likes of 80's new wave. It's a song about my inability to leave things unsaid." The track has struck a resounding chord with both pop and alternative fans alike due to its presence on a multitude of Spotify playlists and the continued support of Alt Nation, where it's already breaking through on the station's Alt 18 chart this summer. "Talk Too Much" feels naturally bound for wider radio impact throughout the rest of the year and beyond. Indie Shuffle cited the track as proof that COIN 'might be on the verge of something great…'
A R I Z O N A
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.
