New York-based multi platinum selling UK singer-songwriter, composer, and producer Coyle Girelli (you might remember him from his song with Peking Duck frontman Adam Hyde’s solo project, Keli Holiday – Song Goes On) has just released his new single True Love Forever; a track full of heart written for, and taken from, an upcoming theatre production with Third Rail Projects. An ode to love, captivating melodies and an almost ethereal beat, this is a definitely worth a listen.
Accompanying the track is a beautifully filmed dance production that sees Coyle and the theatre troupe moving through some of New York City’s famous subways, in an expression of what it means to fall in love at first sight.
We asked Coyle to share his fave five music venues in New York City…
1. Rockwood Music Hall – it has been the heartbeat of New York’s music scene for many years. Three venues in one space. A small no cover piano bar where everyone who has ever graced New York in the last 15 years has played an intimate set and where many people can say “I saw them before they were famous” about numerous artists. It’s got a larger stage and the viby, dimly lit downstairs room. A must visit for anyone coming to New York. Any night of any week.
2. Mercury Lounge – legendary Lower East Side spot. It’s where I played my first show in NYC. Pure rock n roll vibes.
3. The Apollo Theater – the history in those walls in unreal. That stage has graced so many legends and is an important national treasure, not just a New York one.
4. The Sultan Room – a newer spot. Only a few years old but quickly become one of my favourites. Amazon room with one of the most Instagramable stages in the world.
5. The Metropolitan Opera – I call it my temple because that’s how it feels. I see a lot of opera there. It feeds my soul.
