“If Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams and Neil Young took the best parts of their talents and created a musical creature, we could call him James Coates.”
“Coates sounds like Bob Dylan would if Dylan could actually sing, while lyrically, he veers closer to Springsteen territory.”
“Raw, powerful emotion. As real and genuine as it gets.”
“Coates seems to literally bleed emotion through his music.”
“There is much more to James Coates than his magnificent raspy voice and deep, honest lyrics. What stands out the most is his passion and dedication to his craft.”
