Growing up in a little Metrowest city about 40 miles from Boston where there were more cows than supermarkets, gas stations and pharmacies combined. Lyssa Coulter always had a passion for singing and performing. Coulter would sing out lyrics to her favorite songs from the Broadway musical Annie, as her mom drove her to preschool at the age of 2. She loved to dance in her home’s foyer and perform for people when they came to her house. Coulter has been looking for her stage since she could walk on her own.
At 16, Coulter started her vocal education at Encore Music Academy in Franklin and rapidly grew the confidence to play at karaoke nights at CBS Scene is Foxborugh. Shortly after her family moved to Westborough and Coulter started working with Patrice Peris and Whitney Doucet at a local music studio. This is where music became the most important part of Coulter’s life. While attending this studio, Coulter started to write her own songs.
Because of her love for all genres of music, Coulter was not sure which genre interested in. After attending award winning Kelsea Ballerini in concert, she knew country music was her calling and after this decision was made, she decided to record her first song in country music capital “Nashville.” Coulter now trains with famous vocal coach, Mark Baxter.
Coulter’s first appearances were at local events like Westborough, Spring Festival and the Spirit of Shrewsbury, along with being hand selected for many national anthem performances. Most recently Coulter has performed at Indian Ranch in Webster (MA), Boston’s own Cheers and the Topsfield Fair. In addition she had played at many restaurants and bars around the Boston, Worcester and Metrowest areas. Coulter has also performed at Loretta’s Last Call Indian Ranch, Hard Rock Café in Boston and has recently started to play some Nashville venues.
Coulter’s single “By My Side” was released in June 2017 and has been played on 101.7 The Bull’s Backyard Country, Country 102.5 Local Catch of the Week, 98.9 Nash Icon and the Mix 104.1. Coulter recently returns to Nashville to record her EP with Chris Parker at Digit Timbre and will be putting out more music in 2018.
