“It's hard to imagine being a music biz veteran when you're in your 20s. But Ginger Coyle's been flirting with major musical success since she was about 14 years old and released her first demo. Now, comes the release of "Homeword Bound," her first album of original songs, which she will celebrate with an evening of performances Saturday at the Sigma Sound Entertainment complex in Philadelphia. The album is a pop-rock outing, tinged with soul and brimming with catchy hooks and conscious lyrics exploring universal themes, all delivered by a striking woman who seems part vintage movie star, part feisty modern singer-songwriter, complete with a passel of tattoos. ”

“From Southampton, NJ, Ginger Coyle is an indie, pop, soul, and retro singer, weaving conscious lyrics over acoustic guitar and piano. She has been writing and performing music professionally for 13 years, and in 2003, won her first demo deal on the Wayne Brady Show after taking first place in a talent search sponsored by Hard Rock. Ginger has shared stages with B.o.B., Flobots, Cobra Starship, and more. She has also toured the midwest with Third Eye Blind and was featured on the cover of PRICK Magazine. In 2011, Ginger won an annual songwriting competition by the Philadelphia Songwriter’s Project. Her winning song “Moon & Back” was written in 2008 after her hip hop band The Thunderkatz (signed with Universal Motown/ Murder Inc) broke up. Watch Ginger Coyle’s music video below for “Let It Burn!” and keep an eye out for her debut album Homeward Bound.”

“If you attend local concerts regularly, you develop favorites — artists you want to see again and again. This week, some of those favorites are back on the club scene. At Café Madison at 33 Lafayette St. in Riverside, Ginger Coyle returns after a hiatus. The popular singer takes center stage Wednesday, performing her favorite songs, as well as yours. Coyle was a winner in the Philadelphia Songwriters Project last year and is ready to issue her debut CD “Homeward Bound” this spring. Previous tours with Third Eye Blind, Cobra Starship and B.o.B have prepped her for fame.”

“Coyle was inspired to write a song that would not only provide a sympathetic voice about the tragedy in the Gulf, but would also raise money to help the animals suffering through the crisis. “I was watching the news on the oil spill every day,” said Coyle. “It was really starting to bring me down. I wanted to donate something to help.” Coyle wrote “Tears in the Sand,” a song with a heartfelt message that, she hopes, portrays the heartbreaking nature of the crisis.”

“She couldn’t contribute a lot of money, but if she could write a song and donate the proceeds from its sale, she might be able to do her part. Then she heard about the beach rally. She wrote her song in one night, completing it as she drove to Barnegat. “People were coming up to say, ‘You should do something with that,’ ” Coyle recalled. So four days later, accompanied by Philadelphia cellist Alethea Norton Washburn, Coyle recorded her tune at Why Me? Recording in Gibbsboro, Camden County. “I play acoustic. This wonderful cello player came in and laid down some cello in the background. It turned out to be beautiful,” the Medford resident said. Now she’d like to sell the recording to raise funds for People Protecting Animals and Their Habitats (PATH). ”

“Musician Ginger Coyle volunteered to strum her guitar and sing while participants clasped hands for 15 minutes. She sang an original song called "Tears in the Sand." "She was amazing and really excited about it," Neal said. ”
