Coyote Riot has its roots set deep in old folk and country/blue grass string sounds of the past and present. The twang of the rockabilly stile guitar sits nicely with the pluc of the bass and the chuck of the tenor banjo, while the harmonica and fiddle harmonize like crickets in heat. A recipe gaurenteed to have you hootin and hollerin with your foot-a-stompin.
Chicago folksinger P.M. Buys stands as any building from his city’s skyline would, stretched high and slender. With a harmonica slung from his neck and a well-aged guitar in his hands, he appears to compartmentally fit his Midwest predecessors like Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. One can certainly detect heavy influence from the Ghosts of Folk Music’s Past tucked within the works of P.M. Buys. Those elements, when twisted with thorough classical guitar training, surprising chordal accompaniment and intense lyricism, combine to give P.M. Buys a sound entirely his own.
His lastest release, a batch of six songs entitled Atop the Salt, was released in May of 2015. The EP is currently available for download, free of charge, at www.pmbuys.com.
