Sam (vocals, guitar) and Jake Allen (guitar), Amanda Grant (bass, vocals), and Jeremy Ramos-Foley (drums).Run Coyote is a Canadian rock ‘n’ roll band. The band evokes dark backwoods and haunted city streets through twanged guitar, vocal harmonies, melodic bass, and swing and break beats. Run Coyote released its debut album Youth Haunts in October of 2014 on vinyl LP, CD, and digital download. With Youth Haunts, Run Coyote mixes elements of twangy indie rock, alt-country, and blues to create what LondonFuse calls “an ode to the Canadian landscape.” Quick Before it Melts said Youth Haunts is a “fine debut,” stating that the musicians “imbue intensity and passion in their playing to warm the coldest heart.” CBC Radio’s In the Key of C named the album a top pick of the week in Ontario. Neal McDonald wrote in the Waterloo Region Record that, “Youth Haunts is a showcase for Run Coyote’s rock and country roots, and captures the push and pull between urban and rural influences in the band’s music.”
