|Bio||Newcastle based singer-songwriter Rod Coote has found the sweet sonic spot between folk and pop music, creating his own blended unique dreamy folk sound all his listeners have naturally embraced.
From humble beginnings busking on the streets of his rural NSW hometown of Manilla and nearby city Tamworth, Rod naturally developed his performance and songwriting skills at an early age. After serving in the Royal Australian Air Force, Rod was naturally drawn back to music and has since organically established his own fan base by regularly playing live shows across NSW.
Now at 22, the independent artist's music has accumulated over 25 000 streams on Spotify alone in over 45 countries worldwide. Following the release of his debut album 'Golden Hour' in late 2019, Rod has been fortunate enough to support shows for the iconic Australian band Chocolate Starfish & Irish Folk duo Byrne and Kelly of Celtic Thunder.
?Rod's debut album received further success by receiving airplay on local radio stations and with his single's 'Lighthouse', 'Hibernate' & 'Comet' positioning in the Triple J Unearthed Top 25 Roots Charts.
His musical blend of his soulful vocals, authentic lyrics and acoustic strings has drawn comparisons to similar artists such as Vance Joy, Harry Styles, Dustin Tebbutt, Garrett Kato, Harrison Storm, and Riley Pearce |
