Coyote are a 5-piece rock band from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Despite hailing from Canada’s smallest province the sound produced by this charismatic quintet is anything but. Their latest release, Proof of Life is an EP full of massive, jubilant pop songs that could sound at home bursting from rock radio or a college station. Recorded by Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions), Proof of Life is ambitious, loaded with the dynamic hooks, sharp, propellant keyboard lines, and soaring, emotional choruses that typify the energetic Coyote live show.
At the core of the Coyote sound is the confident voice and poignant songwriting of front-man Josh Carter. Full of longing and reflection, Proof of Life captures the tensions of growing up, youthful romance, friendships and their failings. Carter’s lyrical sincerity is delivered with undeniably catchy melodies, and an earnest, hopefully triumphant energy.
Since their inception in 2011, Coyote has toured relentlessly, performing at every manner of festival and rock club in the region. Proof of Life is a crisp, more robust follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut Tracks, and it perfectly captures this talented, road-tested group in full stride.
