InPrint: Devon Coyote joins the Madman’s Gospel at Habitat

Devon CoyoteDevon Bjarnason is maybe better known as one half of Kelowna’s acoustic rock duo devonandkevin, but he is now making waves under his newest solo project; Devon Coyote.

Devon is hands down one of the most entertaining singer/songwriters to see perform on stage. He spends countless hours practicing and mastering his craft and this comes through in his live performance. Truly a one-man band, Devon circulates through a number of guitars and instruments throughout his set and each contributes to his unique style and pays tribute to his many different influences including rock, folk, blues, and country.

Devon recently released a four song EP titled ‘The Tri Colour EP’ which gives fans a bit of a taste of what is to come on his upcoming album ‘Blue, Black, and Grey’ which is set to be released this spring. The EP is available for download on www.devoncoyote.com. Check out “Always in the Gray” where Devon shows off his slide steel guitar and a definitive alt country howl.

Devon Coyote will be playing at Habitat on Saturday, March 19 and will be opening up for the Madman’s Gospel who will be celebrating their CD release party.

Every member of the Madman’s Gospel brings their own musical influences together to create a unique sound which employs simple and honest songwriting spiked with contemporary sounds and styles. With lyrics that range from heart wrenching to downright saucy and energetic live performances – even the non-believers will soon be preaching the Madman’s Gospel.

Tickets for the Madman’s Gospel CD Release featuring Devon Coyote at Habitat (248 Leon Ave.) on March 19 are $15 and include a copy of the Madman’s Gospel’s album. Tickets are available online at estore.thehabitat.ca or at the doors. For more information visit www.thehabitat.ca.
