Hailing from Philadelphia, Jon Coyle makes sounds with all sorts of things- piano, percussion, toy instruments, voice, and electronics are just a few.  His music can at times be serene, reflective, earthy, screwy, or anything else, depending on who’s listening.  In 2009, he released Woods, a collection of instrumental songs peppered with sparse improv and ambient textures.  Recently, he has taken to sculpting sounds out of home-recorded improvisations and merging them with vocals.  More music is on the way.

Where do you live actually?

 Philadelphia, USA.

What is the last thing you ate?

Oatmeal with peanut butter and bananas.

Your addiction?

Lately yogurt and Grouper’s Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill.

One quote?

“I am very lucky with the neighboring farms; I can get all sorts of fresh eggs. You won’t believe the pounds of wild mushrooms I pick up every year, and with the herbs from my garden, I’ll get out a pan and cook an omelet.” – Jacques Pepin

One movie?

Abbas Kiarostami’s Ta’m e guilass (Taste of Cherry)

One song?

Indian Love Call” by Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy

Best concert ever?

In the last few years I’ve seen some great shows in Philly.  Seeing accordionist Frode Haltli, Deerhoof, and Animal Collective were all awesome experiences.

Where would you wish to wake up tomorrow?
