Mike Cote – Friday, September 29th at 7pm
Join Magical Yoga for the Songwriter Series, our intimate concerts featuring local and regional singer songwriters. Bring a beverage, a chair, pillow, or blanket, and some friends as you sit and listen to the stories of our lives and the musicians who tell them.
A singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist hailing from Lake Winnipesaukee, Mike has mastered vocal and lyrical styles from R&B to bluesy modern folk. Recently settling on a transcendent nouveau Beatles style for his latest single, he brings feeling to instruments and hearts. Plaintive, engaging, captivating presence and bold accompaniments make for an unforgettable live experience.
His vocals are striking: bold, expansive, expressive. Lyrics heartfelt with a touch of nihilism and an undercurrent of modern aloof confidence while belying a soulful self-discovery. Underplaying wisdom in favor of lyrical harmony, Mike’s songs allow the parts to create a whole and invoke feelings rather than pensive thought.
Mike plays with master instrumentalists in his band Pharaoh & the Blues, but is equally entertaining as a solo acoustic artist on his own strings, keys, and beats.
