What blossomed as a sweet relationship between two young people busking on the streets of Seattle has become a powerful trio of roots musicians renowned for their totally engaging live performances and beautiful studio albums. At once both radically progressive and unashamedly nostalgic, Coyote Grace is at the forefront of a growing movement to redefine the meanings of “roots” and “tradition.” Sure they’ve played in bluegrass bands and country revues, but their music and their lives are a process of continual re-invention. They’re not afraid to slip Left Coast politics into a Midwest groove, because the honesty of their message shines through. Whether singing about the complexities of long-term relationships, or the head-spinning fun of barista crushes, they’re singing about each and every one of us, and that’s what makes their music so accessible. They’ve won over crowds across the US touring with The Indigo Girls, and with their newest album, Now Take Flight, they’re sure to win even more friends. Coyote Grace is poised to step into the national spotlight as troubadours of a new folk movement.
