These youthful travelers depend on the kindness of strangers and of lovers, and on their journey they've experienced enough joy and heartbreak to last a lifetime.” -Sylvia Sukop, Huffington Post
One part Ginger, one part Genius, one part Gender warrior: Coyote Grace is at the forefront of a growing movement to redefine the meanings of “roots” and “tradition” with their textured harmonies, confessional songwriting, and a unique sound that hovers just beyond the edge of ‘familiar’. Armed with a bevy of acoustic instruments - from guitar and upright bass to banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and accordion - Joe Stevens, Ingrid Elizabeth, and Michael Connolly fill theater, club, and festival stages with a wash of sound seemingly far too expansive for three musicians. The sultry trio combines virtuosic musicianship combined with a humble, warm stage presence, all stemming from a history of self-invention – and re-invention. Coyote Grace tours nationwide and has recently released their fifth album, Now Take Flight.
"The group Coyote Grace is a wonderful amalgam of genuine musicality and joy. This album is a carefully crafted collection of musical loveliness done as well as it can be done. Get one copy for you and another for your friends. You'll be a hero." -Victory Music Review
“Tylan’s practice of extending metaphors out toward a precipice keeps an unpredictable edge to [her] songs. Most writers would stop at the easy close. Ty jumps, leaving much to imagination, to powerful effect.Ty’s expressive alto brings quiet energy to her introspective ballads, nursing a negotiation of life from pain to acceptance, if not peace.” -Americana Gazette
After five studio albums and ten years on the road with the internationally acclaimed folk-pop quartet Girlyman, Tylan is returning to her roots, releasing her debut solo album "One True Thing" in early 2013.
“Playing with Girlyman for so long has really spoiled me,” says Tylan Greenstein, who’s decided to drop her last name for her new solo venture. “I couldn’t ask for a more interesting, talented group of musicians, and all those instruments and arrangements really support my songs. At the same time, there’s something about the completely raw, stripped down, lyric-driven acoustic experience that has always appealed to me. That’s where I come from."
