The Alin Coen Band makes music that's laid-back with a heavy dose of singer-songwriter introspection. Find out just why they're picking up fans all over the place in this edition of Clip.
Alin Coen was born in Hamburg, the daughter of a German doctor and a Mexican artist. She grew up in a bilingual setting and got to see quite a bit of the world along the way.
Alin and the guys - the band formed while they were students
But becoming a well-known singer was never her goal. Coen got her start by chance after a friend invited her to sing a few songs at a party and benefit he had put together. Just a few years later, she was touring internationally, appearing on TV and promoting her first album.
The music is introspective with a touch of Joni Mitchell's sound. After their first album release in 2010, the band has been touring heavily again in 2011.
