Today, on May 18th, 2018, Coyote is put forth into the world for your ears and hearts. Available digitally on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Bandcamp, and wherever you stream or download, and available physically at Black Mesa Records on vinyl and CD.


John was also featured this week in Rolling Stone's Artists You Need to Know, refering to John's songs as "Dreamy folk with a good balance of sadness and sunshine."



Thank you all for the continued support and for giving it hell every day and rolling with the punches.

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,


- Kris
