Is it fearlessness or confidence? It’s probably both for Liam Coleman. After graduating high school a few years ago, there was no question where this singer/songwriter was headed. To Nashville and beyond!

I first featured Coleman as my Local Catch when he was just 16 years old. Despite being a teenager, there was no awkwardness about his abilities. Certainly, no lack of confidence, at least in appearances. He came to our studio hooked up his guitar and slayed an original song.

Liam Coleman Making Moves

That young man from Charlton now calls Nashville home and recently earned a highly coveted spot as a regular at Garth Brooks new bar Friends In Low Places. You can see him performing every week at the new hot new downtown venue.

To leave everything and everyone you know behind and move to a new city at 18 years old is brave. But, it also show competence in your abilities. His hard work, fearlessness and confidence can take him far, and that journey has already begun. Liam has opened shows for some big names, including Jordan Davis, recently.

Liam Lately

Liam is set to release a new song (May 17), and he is sharing it with you, here, before it’s even released. “Lucky Enough” shows tremendous growth and maturity. That is saying something, because, frankly, this artist’s music has always been beyond his years. But, with this new release it’s a relationship gone awry that has Coleman wisely owning up to and admitting responsibility.

Strong vocals and undaunted melodies keep the song soaring. His conviction is clear on the “one that got away.” There’s just the right amount of ebb and flow in this musical expedition.

Where Liam’s career takes him next is unknown. It is for most of us. But, he already has the tools to take him wherever he wants to go. His bags are packed with fearlessness, competence and confidence. With those 3 things, the sky’s the limit for this seriously capable artist.

The boy who started playing drums at 6 years old, taught himself how to play guitar in 6th grade and started performing in public at 14 should be proud of the artist he’s become. Like some of his heroes, from Johnny Cash to Hardy and Green Day, Liam Coleman never considered any other life than playing music. He just knew what he had to do…what he wanted to do.

  • The Music

    “Lucky Enough”

    Liam explained what his new song is about, saying: ” It’s about getting a chance with the “one”, screwing it up and knowing you won’t get a second chance at it.”
