Bo Rinehart left rock roots of founded band, Needtobreathe, to pursue a more authentic artistry in music. Commencing an independent career, Rinehart is re-christened as Coy Roy. Coy Roy sets out to distill raw emotion in sonic and visual moments that move in concert with one another creating a soundtrack for each story on his debut manifesto. The artistry of Coy Roy bids listeners to FEEL their way thru sonic experiences for deeper meanings and connections. The embodiment of Coy Roy is influenced by musical artists of all genres that fought to stay true to themselves and their artistry.“I believe true art is experienced by connecting with the artist and their story, maybe even more so than the art itself."The present of Coy Roy is not just in the packaging of his songs. The real gift is in the unwrapping of his story.
After three years of absence from the public spotlight, Bo Rinehart emerges as "Coy Roy", leaving fans expectantly waiting for what he will reveal with his upcoming releases. "Coy Roy is an embodiment of artistic freedom and an expression of world eclectic rhythms that hope to connect us all through the emotion of music", says Rinehart.
Coy Roy released his highly anticipated debut single "I'm Right Here" on all digital streaming platforms on September 9th, 2022.
The second single off Coy Roy's upcoming debut album, "Doing the Best I Can / Ruminating Thoughts" was released April 7th, 2023, with the rest of the project due later in 2023. “I want to create music that you enjoy,” Rinehart says, “but more importantly I want to create art that accurately conveys my experiences and offers a meaningful connection between us. I believe that great art is experienced in connection with the artist, maybe even more so than the art itself.”
In 2020, Rinehart announced that he would be stepping away from his co-founded band, Needtobreathe, after logging over 20 years of global touring and award-winning success.
Rinehart’s separation allowed him to dive inward and fully process the trauma of being a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. This path to healing has led Rinehart to partner with the Davis House, a Franklin, TN local child advocacy center serving children and families affected by sexual or significant abuse as well as other traumatic events.
