Pandora's Box Review
***1/2 (Three and 1/2 stars)
'These nine musicians, offering all original tunes on their fifth album, might be graduates of Ken Kesey's Acid Tests of the mid-'60s who have been transported
across time to the present.
Along the way, they picked up influences ranging from globalists Paul Horn and Oregon to adventurous rock bands It's A Beautiful Day and Joy of Cooking to Ken Nordine's Word-Jazz.
Keeping listeners off guard, the Denver-based Coyote Poets loosely fit the contemporary jam-band mold even as "Blood and Bones" and "Quittin' Time"
rumble with a blues heft unattainable to many conventional blues bands.'
Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat, September 2011

Thank you for sharing your time to visit the web site for Coyote Poets of the Universe. We are very happy to have you learn about us.
What's in a name? Coyote Poets was organized early in the millennium by a group of poets and musicians who wanted to bring about a new combination of music with spoken word / song lyrics that were innovative and great to listen to, but with the slyness and humor of the 'trickster' - the Coyote.
As of Winter 2017, we have spent two years working on our sixth project, a two CD album titled 'Strange Lullaby', and we are planning a Spring 2018 release.
Having a blast recording at Swamp Rocket Studio in Brighton, Colorado!
