Published Sep 11, 2014Ontario songwriter Sam Allen started Run Coyote as a solo project, but it has since evolved into a full band based in Kitchener and London, ON. They will release their debut album, Youth Haunts, on October 3.
Run Coyote made the album at the Sugar Shack studio in London. It was recorded by Simon Larochette (Single Mothers, Olenka and the Autumn Lovers) and produced by Mack Edwards of the Allens. The results are said to span indie rock, pop and country, with influences including Neil Young and Link Wray.
A press release calls the resulting 10 songs "a stew of folk and blues cooked on your grandmother's wood stove in a farmhouse kitchen." Aaron Goldstein of Daniel Romano & the Trilliums and City and Colour guests on pedal steel, while former Olenka & the Autumn Lovers contributor Kelly Wallraff plays cello and violin.
Get a taste of the music by streaming the premiere of the album track "Stranger (In My Own Home)," which features Goldstein on pedal steel. Also, you can hear the song "Rain On," along with a couple of behind-the-scenes videos.
