A big man with a big voice.
This is Coty Robinson. A native of Dorchester, Ontario, Robinson is no stranger to a microphone. Having an opportunity to be one of the home game, in-house announcers for the Dorchester Dolphins gave him valuable experience winning over a crowd.
With the loss of his mother at a young age, Robinson dived headfirst into music as a way to cope with the pain and heartbreak. For Coty, connecting with music was a way to express his own experiences, struggles, and emotions and to honour his mother’s memory. Johnny Cash, Eric Church, Lee Brice, and Luke Combs have all influenced Coty’s sound and songwriting.
When he was unable to find the words to say, a song always could.
In 2019, after challenging Brett Kissel to a game of backstage beer-pong on Twitter, Kissel accepting, and a triumph over the country star backstage, Coty was egged on to sing in front of Kissel by some friends. Kissel joined in, and eventually, Coty sang an acapella verse and chorus of a Luke Combs hit. Brett was blown away by not only what he heard, but also Coty’s overall presence.
Coty lives to perform. Being a fan of country music first, Coty’s biggest aspiration is to bring the joy of connecting with fans through music. His live shows are electrifying and win over new fans immediately.
Coty is set to release his debut EP later in 2022. He recorded the EP at OCL Studios in Chestermere, Alberta with Juno-award winning and four time CCMA guitar player of the year, Matty McKay. The EP features songs that Coty has co-written about life, love, loyalty, friendship, and small-town living including his latest single “Bigger Guy”.
