We've been getting some great press from Coyote. Here's what some folks have had to say:


"Abney’s brand of Americana isn’t deeply rooted in country tinged crooners or twang. Rather, Abney's delievers soft and elegant moments reminiscent of Beck’s Sea Change, Ryan Adams‘ 29 and Elliott Smith’s Either/Or." - Wide Open Country


"Equal parts Elliott Smith and William Elliot Whitmore." - mxdwn


"Lush...dreamy." - The Boot


"Abney’s voice carries a world-weary sadness while simultaneously exuding optimism." - Glide Magazine


"9 out of 10...Abney is like a modern day Romantic poet, Wordsworth perhaps, (or Lord Byron – mad, bad and dangerous to know?) ... one of Oklahoma's finest comes up with the goods!" - Americana UK


The pre-order is almost over for Coyote. After May 10, orders will ship out as normal orders, after the May 18/19 release shows. There will be very limited quantities of pink vinyl at both of these shows, so if you're lucky enough to be in Tulsa at the Mercury Lounge on May 18, or The Blue Door in Oklahoma City on May 19, find the merch table fast, as we're sure these will go quickly. Pre-order at Black Mesa Records.


Peace and Love,

"Abney’s brand of Americana isn’t deeply rooted in country tinged crooners or twang. Rather, Abney's delievers soft and elegant moments reminiscent of Beck’s Sea Change, Ryan Adams‘ 29 and Elliott Smith’s Either/Or...a blend of earnest balladry with an angelic and pensive soundscape that leans and sways with a comfortable ease" -Wide Open Country (premiere of "Always Enough")


"Lush harmonies are layered over a dreamy groove..." -The Boot (premiere of Get Your House In Order)


"Abney’s voice carries a world-weary sadness while simultaneously exuding optimism...slowburning tune feels reflective and hopeful...a rich sound perfectly suited to hit power pop vocals" - Glide Magazine (premiere of Every Now and Then)

Pre-order Coyote now on CD and limited carnation pink vinyl at Black Mesa Records website before it is released on May 18th.


Thanks a million for your ears and hearts. Look out of one another out there.
