In a blog by Artists Central they described his style as- “Folk influences are clear with delicate acoustic instrumentals and guitar setting the tone for the haunting but smooth vocals that Graham has, his voice was almost crafted for this style of music, he balances his projection and tone incredibly well”.

I love your way
Anfang des Jahres hatte ich Graham Coe das erste Mal "am Ohr" und war begeistert. "Here I am" hieß das gute Stück, und wer's nicht kennt, unbedingt mal reinhören, es lohnt sich wirklich. Jetzt, sprich gestern, hat er seine neue Single rausgebracht "I love your way".
Auch wenn es kitschig klingen mag, sagt er, die Inspiration lieferte seine Frau. Ihre Art, ihr Wesen, wie sie die Dinge angeht, die Sicherheit die sie ihm gibt, einfach alles an ihr ist liebenswert und wenn man so eine große Liebe für jemanden empfindet, nur dann entsteht ein Lied wie "I love your way".
Waren es bei "Here I am" noch die Streicher, so ist es dieses Mal das Klavier das für die Komplettierung im Background sorgt. Zusammen mit den, wie immer, erstaunlichen Vocals und dem Sound der Akustikgitarre macht uns Graham zum Abschluss des Jahres noch einmal ein wunderschönes Geschenk in Form eines Love Songs.
Eine Ode an die Frau die man liebt, von einem Singer und Songwriter welcher im Genre des Folk zu Hause ist, das ist dann schon "straight to the heart". "I love your way" by Graham Coe, he loves her way and we love his song!
What was your inspiration for your new song "I love your way"?
It’s sounds cheesy but the inspiration for “I Love Your Way” can be attributed to my wife. She’s the strength, the glue and the person that keeps our family together. Her constant positivity and love is really quite remarkable and inspiring.
The track is about romance, love, ... on a scale from 1- 10, how romantic are you?
Depends on what your own version of what romantic is. Maybe I’m a 7 out of 10. I’m not an over the top romantic although you might be fooled by some of the songs I write! 😀😀
What was the first ever Pop/Rock/Folk ... song you listened to or remember on?
My Dad used to have lots of Records. Mostly records by the Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley and The Beatles. So maybe Elvis was who I first remembered listening to.
I definitely have a memory of listening to “Guitar man” by Elvis and just loving the opening guitar in that and some of the cool stops in the song were great too.
Do you remember your first live gig as an artist?
I actually think my first gig was with my first band called Fused and we played a 21st party for the sister of Trevor who was one of the lad in the band.
I can remember playing “ I want to Hold your hand” by The Beatles and I think we had “Angel of Harlem” by U2 in the set also. It was very kind of her to get us for her party as I’d say we sounded awful! 😂😂
I have read something about an upcoming EP, what can we expect?
I’m very excited to release my EP. I finished recording it in the summer and it has a mix of songs that might be described as country pop to slow folk ballads.
The songs are varied and interesting so I can’t wait to hear the final mixes of them and get them out for everyone to hear.
"Christmas time is knocking on our doors", how do you celebrate Christmas?
I would celebrate Xmas with the family the good ole fashioned way-turkey, ham, spiced beef, potatoes and Brussels sprouts followed by Xmas pudding. Total over indulgence but sure it’s only once a year!
You are from Blessington, Wicklow (near Dublin) how would you describe the Irish Folk music scene?
The Irish folk scene is thriving. We have an incredible pool of talent writing folk music and if I was to list them all you’d be reading this email for hours.
The Irish folk awards were just on and the likes of Mick Flannery, John Francis Flynn and the great Christy Moore all featured.
And of course ... What’s next for you?
The next thing for me is the release of my EP. After that I’ll keep on writing and releasing new tunes!
