English multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter, composer, producer and multi-

instrumentalist Coyle Girelli has shared his new single, True Love Forever. To celebrate the release, the musician has shared with MILKY his top five New York based singer-songwriters.


“The song was inspired by a moment in the show that was lacking,” Girelli shares. “It’s a moment when the couple in the show first fall in love. That euphoria. That feeling that everything is wonderful and everything is going to be alright. That may or may not be how the story ends, so it is tinged with a slight melancholy but in this moment lyrically and emotionally they ask themselves: ‘is this it? Is it true love forever?’”.




In no particular order…


COYLE GIRELLI

Some English lad who lives in New York. He’s pretty good at songwriting and singing.




HAMILTON LEITHAUSER

I love Hamilton’s writing and the sound of his solo records. And like myself he writes a lot about the city he loves and the people within it. He has a very cool annual residency at The Carlyle as well which is always fun.




ADRIANNE LENKER

She’s so brilliant and so prolific. Big Thief are one of my favorite current bands and i’m also a big fan of her solo work. I think her song “anything” was my most played on Spotify in 2020




ANN CLARK (ST VINCENT)

Just a great artist. Every album is full with so many interesting ideas, lyrics and sounds.




JACK ANTONOFF

He’s not had a bad few years has he? Jack seems to be able to pull the best out of whoever he works with while keeping whatever he does cool, tasteful and current sounding. There’s also something simple sounding to a lot of what he does which is not an easy skill! Brilliant songwriter and producer.
