"The duo were warm, playful, serious, humble, and dad-burn entertaining" - Rusty Taylor, The Jazzonian
Over the past decade, guitarist Trey Wright and vocalist Laura Coyle have established themselves as first-call musicians on the Atlanta jazz scene. 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 Joni Mitchell.
The duo has performed at the Athens Jazz Festival, the Roswell Arts Festival, Morgan Hall at Kennesaw State University, Agnes Scott College, Hendershots in Athens, Churchill Grounds Jazz Sessions at Mason Tavern, and the Columbus Jazz Society concert series at The Loft. They perform regularly at Wolf Mountain Vineyards in Dahlonega, and Fire Stone Grill in Woodstock. Read more...
