New Zealand singer/songwriter Coral Pitcher is proving herself to be an artist with undeniable talent and huge potential.
While her powerful soul voice has been compared to Adele, Amy Winehouse, Gin Wigmore and even Janis Joplin, Coral has a charismatic musical style all her own. Her music encompasses Pop Rock/Blues and her unique feel gives her a distinct and edgy sound.
Coral started singing at a very early age and decided to make music her career in 2008 after placing in the top 12 of Prime TV's New Zealand's got Talent. She started working as a professional singer when she was 14, along side her mother in the family band, then progressing to doing her own solo gigs on guitar. Working as a full time musician from the age of 17. Coral started writing her own songs at 14 and developed a strong song writing partnership with her mother, Emmeline. She went on to win many competitions, sign a management deal, record and release a Single and 2 Acoustic EP's.
In time Coral felt that she needed more musical freedom so decided to move on and become an independent Artist. Her mum gave up her job and started working full time with Coral, setting up their own music label, Signet Soundz.
In 2015 Coral released her first music video ‘Shooting You Up’ after winning a NZonAir music grant.
