Coia is a Singer-Songwriter, Artist based out of Greensboro, North Carolina with alternative rock roots & refreshing hints of indie-pop. Coia combines the musical textures of Jason MRaz, with the vocal passion of artists such as Jon Foreman, Eddie Vedder and John Mayer.
After spending the Winter of 2012 touring the east coast on a self-made acoustic demo, Coia wrote and recorded the album “The Friction,” which released on April 13, 2013.
The album features stand-out tracks such as “Burn” and “Seas” that are sure to draw attention to this quickly growing music project. Coia's shows vary between solo, acoustic performances of Mike Coia, to larger concerts where he is backed by close friends and other talented musicians.
Although Coia’s drive and love for music shows in his music, it doesn’t over shadow his passion for why he plays it. "The goal of Coia is to reflect how grateful I am to be able to make music and in that, hopefully motivate and encourage others in their lives. I want the music I'm writing/playing to be bigger than myself."
