A big man with a big voice. This is Coty Robinson and he is aiming to be a household name. A native of Dorchester, Ontario, Robinson is no stranger to a microphone. Having an opportunity to be one of the home game in-house announcers for the London Knights gave him valuable experience winning over a crowd.
With the loss of his mother at a young age, Robinson dived headfirst into music as a way to cope with the pain and heartbreak. For Coty, connecting with music was a way to express his own experiences, struggles, and emotions and to honour his mother's memory. Johnny Cash , Eric Church , Lee Brice , and Luke Combs have all influenced Coty’s sound and songwriting. When he was unable to find the words to say, a song always could.
In 2019, after challenging Brett Kissel to a game of backstage beer-pong on Twitter, Kissel accepting, and a triumph over the country star backstage, Coty was egged on to sing in front of Kissel by some friends. Kissel joined in, and eventually, Coty sang an acapella verse and chorus of a Luke Combs hit for Kissel. Brett was blown away by not only what he heard, but also Coty's overall presence. Being a fan of country music first, Coty’s biggest aspiration is to bring the joy of connecting with fans through music, and song, and being able to share the experience with others, at any level possible.
Coty lives to perform. His live show is electrifying and wins over new fans immediately through his heartfelt human connection. Coty is set to release his debut release in 2023. He has been recording at OCL Studios in Chestermere, Alberta with Juno-award winning and four time CCMA guitar player of the year, Matty McKay .
The debut release features songs that Coty has co-written about life, love, loyalty, friendship, and small-town living. Whoever She Was
is the latest single that is available on your favourite digital provider. Inspired by an incident that happened to Coty, Jason Blaine and Ben Chase wrote the song. Check it out and you too will become a fan of Coty Robinson.
