COSTON! / Bio

Garry B. Coston was born in Jacksonville Florida on October 4th. Raised in Jasper Florida, where Soul, R&B and Gospel were the fore, these genres were instilled in Coston's soul at a very early age. Rock and Roll and Classic Rock would later be added to Coston's music performance genres upon moving to Sarasota, Florida in 1969, and later when joining the Navy in 1974. Soul, Blues, R&B and gospel can clearly be heard in Coston's vocals. Though he never received formal college music and/or vocal training, Coston was schooled in vocal instruction and sight reading from Mr. Andrew J. Wright while attending Sarasota High School. Coston took those 3 years of music and vocal training while in High School very seriously and would never forget his vocal training and instruction, and sightreading as these items are what helps to make him the professional singer that he is today. Coston began fronting professional bands in January 1989 and writing his own music much earlier in December 1982. Coston has performed with numerous bands and musical groups while in the U.S. Navy in Scotland, Germany, and on various U.S. Naval vessels. In addition he has performed in numerous Blues Bands while in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area from 1994 to 2004. In 2004 Coston moved to West Central Florida where he has had the privilege of performing with the West Central Florida Bands Lionheart, Funk Monster Band and Late Night Brass. Coston has collaborated and performed with South Florida Musicians o.b.a. Frank Lords in which he covered a dance single entitled Oh No, originally cut by the Commodores, Duane Broberg, Val Lupescu, Toby Vickers of Faze II Connection, Vala Vickers, Arty K, and Jim Tobaschus. While in West Central Florida, Coston has collaborated with other local musicians such as Kip Cline of Late Night Brass, Richard James of Funk Monster Band, Marko Pocta of Lionheart, and Dane LaBarr and Ken Hoye of Kickin' Again. Coston's plans and goals are to become an international singer, Frontman and Recording Artist, and to eventually develop new talent in the vain of the Old School type of vocal sounds.
