Album Notes
If you want a lesson in organic chemistry, take notes as you watch the sparks fly between the acoustic downhome duo, COYOTE GRACE. This folktastic phenomenon is the result of combining one guitarist Joe Stevens, a transman from Northern California, with one upright bassist Ingrid Elizabeth, a sassy femme originally hailing from the hills of Southeastern Ohio. Together, they capture the eyes and the hearts of live audiences nationwide with their bluesy folkgrass sound, sweet harmonies, poignant songwriting, and mid-song dance moves. Although they spend most of the year on the road, the duo now resides in Sonoma County, California.

Spring 2009 brings the release of "Ear to the Ground", the duo's long-awaited sophomore studio album. In this latest evolution of their unique Americana/roots sound, Coyote Grace displays a striking musical maturation from their debut effort, filling out the duo's sound with guest musicians on fiddle, mandolin, guitar, keys, and drums. Ingrid Elizabeth shows a stronger songwriting & vocal presence, while Joe Stevens continues to wear his heart on his sleeve with his emotionally charged, raw lyrics. The album's mood ebbs and flows, winding from a sparse banjo/vocal duet, through a slow bluegrass ballad, to blues-driven full band sound to swinging country fiddle tune to pensive piano-kissed lullabye -- a soundscape as tangible as the duo's newfound home in the rolling hills of Sonoma County.

Amazing CD, amazing artists! You won't be disappointed.

Casey Halcro

Coyote grace is just the best. It's that simple.

Can't get enough! It's great to hear more Ingrid Elizabeth, she rocks just as much as Joe. Love all the songs! Beware, it is addictive. You'll want to play it over and over. And don't miss them in concert - then you can say you saw them when...

I have a crush on this CD
I saw Coyote Grace with the Indego Girls a few months back and REALLY enjoyed thier music. I got this CD at the concert and as I have been listening to it, more and more, I just adore it! The lyrics are wonderful, and it is filled with soalfull grooves! I am quite moved by the interesting rhythms of the stand up bass clapping and the guitar playing together, and against eachother. I am here to sample more of their music; goodie!

Thanks, Sara. :-)

I am warmed and thrilled by this album, and amazed at the growth since Boxes and Bags. Joe and Ingrid are wonderful to see live, see them if you possibly can.

Ear to the Ground
Excellent writing of lyrics and music. Very intense and warm songs! I was looking froward to this album/CD, and I wasn't disappointed. If you like their other works, you'll love this one! Great live, too. Saw them in Chicago awhile back and they rocked the place.
