Over the past decade, guitarist Trey Wright and vocalist Laura Coyle have established themselves as first call musicians on the Atlanta jazz scene. Although they both have led their own groups, they joined forces in 2017 to form the Laura Coyle and Trey Wright Duo. United by their love of classic jazz pairings including Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald and Tuck and Patti, Laura and Trey perform a unique repertoire of jazz standards, Brazilian music and contemporary songs by their favorite songwriters. On any given night, the duo plays an entertaining and eclectic mix of music by Cole Porter, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Hoagy Carmichael, Dolly Parton and Paul Simon.
The duo has performed at Morgan Concert Hall at Kennesaw State University, the Athens Jazz Festival, and the Roswell Arts Festival. They perform regularly at Wolf Mountain Vineyards in Dahlonega and Firestone Grill in Woodstock. Upcoming Fall 2017 performances include Jazz at the Loft in Columbus and Hendershots in Athens.
