Maya Love Coppola’s sparkling, soulful debut How Coyote Stole Fire is a valentine to heartbreakers, tricksters, even tempestuous Mother Nature herself. With producer and fellow multi-instrumentalist Robert “Chicken” Burke (The Duke & the King), she mixes classic pop melodicism, slippery funk, and edgy rock, weaving tales borne of hard-won experience, as a lover, a beloved, and citizen of a world given to both beauty and chaos. Coppola’s remarkably versatile voice is whisper-soft one moment, confiding and tender, then brazen and dizzyingly powerful the next, elemental like the “Summer Wind” she sings of in the first track, carrying listeners to a distant shore, a boudoir, or the dance floor. Through it all, she and Burke wrap everything in uncommonly lush harmony, part Beach Boys, part P-Funk.
