The Chevin frontman, Coyle Girelli released his highly anticipated debut solo album Love Kills on September 21 this year. A sweeping cinematic dark, lusty and soulful Americana record widely hailed as a masterpiece Love Kills showcases one of the greatest vocalists in modern music at the top of his game.
Love Kills swims in a sound that mixes the crooning influences of Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash together with soaring melodies reminiscent of Ennio Morricone and a modern dark Americana edge to create something refreshingly new and unique.
The origin story of Girelli’s debut solo album begins with a songwriting session with music legend Mac Davis, writer of iconic hits such as In the Ghetto and "A Little Less Conversation" for Elvis Presley. Inspiring Girelli to hole up in a studio in New York City writing and recording the album over several months in late 2017 and early 2018.
Originally from Leeds, England Girelli is now based in Brooklyn, New York City.
Joseph King and the Mad Crush is an indie rock band from Brooklyn, New York, and is comprised of bass player and singer John Paul Frank, drummer Will Whatley, and singer and guitar player Joseph King. They’re also friends.
After 8 releases and years of touring with his first two projects, Canvas (Austin, TX) and Deadbeat Darling (New York, NY), Joseph released his first solo album, “Wanderlusting” in 2014 - a stripped down acoustic driven collection of surfy pop tunes. His follow up EP, “I Miss Everything”, dropped in February 2017 and is a fully realized manifestation of Joseph’s unique songwriting and musical style - sincere and sometimes quirky pop songs with straight forward indie rock edge, surf rock undertones, and late 60’s throwback pop sensibilities. Currently, the trio is back in the studio working on new music, set to be released as a series of singles throughout late 2018, and will be moving forward under the moniker MAD CRUSH.
