A Brief History
Having attended Christ for the Nations institute and having traveled extensively both as a solo violinist and as part of bands (Rick Pino, Kari Jobe, Firestarters) Coty has found himself playing all over the United States and internationally, having ministered in New Zealand, Ireland, The United Kingdom, Belize, and the Philippines.
His two albums, Anchor of Hope,’ and ‘Melodies of the Spirit,’ accurately demonstrate the multi-dimensional musical artist that Coty is. The albums both feature original songs of which were written, co-produced, and arranged by Coty himself.
He currently calls North Georgia of the United States, home. On top of traveling with music, Coty leads worship at his home church, and also works as a tour guide, leading annual trips to Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
The Sound in Coty’s Words
“I think one way to describe it would be that I try and paint pictures with music. It’s an unusual way to describe it, but that’s often how listeners describe it to me. When I play music whether in a concert venue or during a worship service, sometimes I take moments to share the heart behind certain songs, or the meaning behind a sound or lyric, but I have often found that the music itself is capable of something more powerful than words are.
There is something of an unlocking of the heart and crumbling of walls that happens when the Spirit of God engages people as I sing and/or play. I don’t know how to explain it all, other than to be grateful at what I have witnessed in the past. The beauty found in seeing sound move through people and the impact it has on their hearts; it’s a powerful and beautiful happening. I’m privileged and humbled every time I am invited to sing and play my music for listening ears, but watching the Holy Spirit work in the midst of it all, that takes the cake every time.”
