American-Irish singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Ali Coyle, intertwines dream-folk and indie rock genres with lush vocal harmonies and rhythm-focused instrumentation. With a voice that can be described as both haunting and angelic, Coyle’s lyrics express her stories as first generation American, and an openly queer artist, who fought to celebrate her identity growing up in Orange County, California.

Gravitating towards music at an early age, she learned classical violin and then ultimately the electric guitar, where she began to define her style as a songwriter.

Her 2021 debut studio EP, Songs For My Therapist received recognition and acclamation from a list of publications that include The Los Angeles Times, Atwood Magazine, and Guitar Girl Magazine for creating “poetic and moody music that speaks to your soul”

More recently she performed for Apple TV+ at the advanced screening of Flora and Son, an Irish film directed by John Carney (Once, Begin Again, Sing Street). Ali released a new single Dreamkiller last fall and, stay tuned, she is in the process of writing and producing her next record.spel, and 60’s pop.
