“There's a yearning, freight-train-hopping, propulsive energy to many of their songs that suggests not only an indie-band road tour, but the road to one's true identity, a destination on a map still being written.”

“What needs underscoring here and everywhere, is that their music itself is exceptional — deeply focused soulful songwriting and intuitive, bonded, supple performance. I look forward to seeing both aspects mature in the coming years. Long may they run.”

“Talented and devoted musicians, Joe and Ingrid move forward into the mainstream public eye with personal integrity and a musical sound all their own.”

“Boxes And Bags was released for my ears to enjoy, and they continue the wonderful music with their sophomore album Ear To The Ground. An album like this is one that somehow inexplicably gets put on repeat.”

Rachael Fredrickson - Hybrid Music

“With toe-tapping melodies and a wry sense of humor, Coyote Grace explores themes deeply personal yet universal. Weaving a rich tapestry of vocal harmonies, guitar and upright bass, Ingrid Elizabeth and Joe Stevens have formulated a deeply textured and sparkling blend of alternative Americana.”

"Somewhere in the sultry sound, smart lyrics, and easy going demeanor is music so powerful that a listener like myself is both lost and found. During the break of my first Coyote Grace performance I immediately booked them on my campus."

“In honoring who they are, they refuse to be told who or what they should be as people. It is that candor, combined with impressive musical craftsmanship, that transcends boundaries and speaks to a wide audience.”

“Their new album, Ear to the Ground, blossoms into full color with tightly attuned vocals and infectious composition.”

“After listening to all the music coming into the folk, country, soul, bluesy studios of KBCS for the past two years, I can truthfully say - if you haven't been introduced to the energetic, touching music of this prodigious twosome, you are in for a major epiphany...”

“We booked them largely on the strength of singer-guitarist-songwriter Joe Stevens' songwriting and Coyote Grace's good duo work.”

“What we experienced was an excellent performance, with Joe's well-blended guitar work backed up by Ingrid Eyen's solid standup bass playing, and superb vocal harmonies. A positive and engaging performance made for an excellent two sets of strong original music, with a few standout musical surprises.”

“Coyote Grace's debut CD "Boxes & Bags" is as dichotomous as the duo who recorded it. On one hand it's a very professional effort, reflective of two musical veterans who spend most of their days touring from one coast to the next. On the other hand this album is casual and comfortable.”
