What makes a good band great, what makes them stand out above all the rest, is their commitment to an infallible ideal, the one thing that they strive to do to change people through their music, giving them a deeper experience. For Coyote Union, that ideal is connection. Connection to their fans, to their music and to each other. Coyote Union hopes to inspire, uplift and encourage their listener to overcome the “hard stuff in life” by providing musical therapy and songs that move people by sharing their own life experience, hardship and emotion. People say they might be a little too nice, but they don’t care, they just want to reach as many people as they can with heartfelt words, and a positive spirit.

Crobot: There was a time when rock radio was dominated by great riffs. From Deep Purple’s “Smoke On the Water” and Derek And The Dominoes’ “Layla” to Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” and Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name Of” it was all about that unmistakable guitar sound that instantly identified a band or song.

Matty Rico: I know we all go through our own trials at different points in our lives. I started to see the tangible milestones a lot of my friends were reaching. Marriage, career promotions, stability, and all that. Made me second guess every decision I ever made. Cause my milestones existed mostly in self discovery...and you can't really quantify personal growth. I felt like I was trapped. You can't talk to your parents about how you are reaching this enlightened place in your work when you still can't even pay your student loans. It was all becoming so contradictory and I felt like maybe I've been wrong about everything the whole time.
