With the release of LEVEL 1 = PEACE OF MIND, Coyote's been performing
as a soloist. Sometimes he performs guitar with sarcastic lyrics like
Bob Dylan or sings romantic songs like Donovan. Sometimes he plays solo
flute Jethro Tull-style. Fortunately he looks more like Cary Grant and
Richard Gere than Ian Anderson, the flute player
of Jethro Tull.
Jamming to basic tracks of their upcoming
album LEVEL 2 = Christ Killer, Coyote gigs have also been very unusual concerts.
"I wanted to try out some
stuff before I recorded it on the album," explains
Coyote. "There were a few
things, like vocals and flute parts that were really fun performing
live, but I probably won't record for the album. So those gigs
were all kind of special." These
gigs included tambourine, bongo bashing and fingersnaps that sounded like castanets.

"Performing coffeehouses and small
nightclubs is a lot of fun. When the lights are in my eyes on-stage,
I can't see the audience." Coyote
laughs, "I think most of
the time I'm imagining that I'm in concert with a Woodstock-like audience.
I don't know if that's a strange thing to crave, but I really want to
be on-stage and performing some humongous crowds again. HEY! Anybody
need an opening act that sounds like Jethro Tull mated Donovan?"

Coyote enjoys reciting his poems and lyrics
at poetry readings. His strong masculine Jim Morrison voice, handsome
Spaniard features (he looks like Richard Gere), long wavy black hair
(like Arlo Guthrie) have appeared on television shows produced by Shaolin
Records. These solo performances have developed a new more personable
Coyote. Whether he's pounding rhythms on his acoustic guitar or playing
the flute, Coyote jokes and talks to his audience when he's not 'acting'
out his songs by reliving or "re-feeling
the emotions" that originally
inspired the writing of the song.
