Cole Tyler Hottenrott



Who is Buddy Love? Spy gone rouge? Heartbroken lover? James Bond wanna be? They say he was too dangerous for the FBI. Too cunning and charming for MI6.

Buddy Love Goes Coconuts is the brainchild of Cole Tyler Hottenrott, singer songwriter musician. Cole was a member and songwriter for Boston band, The FORZ, is a GRAMMY nominated songwriter, and current student of Berklee College Of Music.

The music of Buddy Love could be described as being a clever mix of indie pop and alternative music, but Cole describes it this way… “All my music comes from all music -- I'm not pop, I'm not rock 'n' roll, I'm just me, and all these things are what I like”.

Influences include Tame Impala, WHY?,

The Nerk Twins, David Bowie and Andy Shauf.

Listen to Buddy Love Goes Coconuts and you will certainly be carried away to other places. Where you go is up to you and all that you are over how many years, hours and seconds you have existed on this earth but the organic dreamscape that singer songwriter Cole Tyler Hottenrott creates will make you float away. It is the perfect soundtrack to frame your own dreams. I want you to hear Cole's beautiful vocal performance. I like his voice... it has a natural lovely texture. - Robb Donker, American Pancake

Buddy Love Goes Coconuts released a single last month and we’ve had the pleasure of reviewing it for you. We were immediately pulled in by the style of the production and lyrical style is as exciting as the gritty guitar work you hear throughout the song. His intimate vocals and songs of honesty, introspection and worldly observation set him apart from other songwriters, combining a musical beauty and individual sense of arrangement with powerful and emotive lyricism to create music that is truly undeniable in every sense of the word.  - Ben Ali, Keep Walking Music

Buddy Love Goes Coconuts brings a level of sincerity and commitment to their psych-laced songs that make them stand out as unique, and simply well done. - Charley Ruddell, The Deli Magazine

“‘She Slipped Away’ is a refreshingly wonderful, intrinsically beautify and yet, campy take on a sound that was popular in the mid 70s, yet still as meaningful today, ‘She Slipped Away’ is a trip, and not just down memory lane.” - IndiePulse Music
