COATS is an indie-pop musician from Nashville, TN, now residing in Los Angeles, CA. COATS got his gritty, gut-wrenching edge from his father Dennis Coats from the band Driver, who charted on the Billboard Hot 100. And the melancholy soul in his voice is all thanks to his his mother, Sheila Taylor - one of the first female acts pushed by Motown Records in 1976. His obsession with pop music and Melrose street style, mixed with ambient production have fueled his sonically heightened aesthetic that you can hear in his floaty, haunting vocals and urban influenced electronic beats on his upcoming album, LUST, LOVE, the BREAK & the HUSTLE
