Myles Coyne has been producing solo material & performing live for the last 3 years. The Rusty Nickel Band formed a year ago. Though we are not signed, we make an effort to record our own material & play out regularly around the Midwest.
Myles Coyne & The Rusty Nickel Band is a Indie Folk band. We combine our favorite elements of American Pop music & storytelling, with a Folk instrumentation.
The band is inspired by the words and music of Jeff Tweedy/Wilco, Bob Dylan, Sufijan Stevens, & Bright Eyes. Most of the bands we enjoy perform with large accompaniments focused around deep storytelling.
