About Ginger Coyle
Back in the 80's Ginger was a typical 3 year old girl sitting on the floor in her parents family room, glued to the monsterous television. What set her apart from other toddlers in the neighborhood was her infatuation with MTV. While her peers were busy watching Care Bears and G.I. Joe, Ginger studied and mimicked Cyndi Lauper and Billy Joel. To this day she still considers the Christmas she received her Kermit the Frog Keyboard the day she knew that she wanted to create music for the rest of her life.
That spark of ambition is what ignited her to start playing her original music in cafe's and bars around South Jersey and Philly throughout high school. In 2003 her hard work finally began to pay off. She found herself on national television at the age of 19 singing Sting's "Every breath you take" on The Wayne Brady Show. She took first place in the "Hard Rock Talent Search" .
Over the years many doors opened. In 2006 she joined hiphop/pop group The Thunderkatz (T!katz) as co-front woman in the eclectic band. They quickly won a BMI urban showcase and signed with MurderInc/Universal Motown in 2007.
The T!katz shook up the Atlanta music scene opening for acts like Cobra Starship, Hollywood Undead, Chrisette Michele and B.O.B. THey toured the Midwest with Third Eye Blind and were even featured on an episode of MTV's G's to Gent's. But it wasn't too long before the band broke up due to irreconcilable differences with thier labels.
After the breakup Ginger had the experience to do a lot of different things. She ultimately decided to get back to her folk rock roots to take care of some unfinished business. She retreated to her tiny basement apartment with her upright piano, guitars, and home studio.
Many hours were spent pounding on keys, plucking on strings, and nurturing her sound as a singer songwriter. In the end she has come forward wtih a more mature sound that compliments her soulful yet playful spirit. In 2011 she will independently release her first solo ep "Homeward Bound". Now that' she's found her true sound she looks forward to the possiblities that lie ahead.
