ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Stone Coyotes are a family trio. But don't expect lace curtains, casseroles or Partridge Family kitsch. With songwriter Barbara Keith on electric guitar and vocals, husband Doug Tibbles on drums, and stepson John Tibbles on bass, this band rocks - and they mean it."
- ELLA MAGAZINE

"You can't enter lightly into an association with The Stone Coyotes. Casual music fans need not apply. If rock and roll is important to you, this music will move your soul... The most honest rock band in the business. Anthems, ballads, and battle cries. Bass, guitar, and drums. It's as simple as that."
- THE UNION NEWS


Barbara Keith began her career at the Café Wha? in Greenwich Village, following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix, Bill Cosby and many others who got their start in that hallowed dive. She was soon recording for MGM/Verve, A&M, and Warner Brothers. Her songs have been covered by such diverse artists as Tanya Tucker, Barbra Streisand, The Dillards, Melanie, Hank Snow, Lowell George and others. "The Bramble and the Rose" has become a folk standard - often receiving the ultimate compliment of being mistaken for a traditional song.

Her husband Doug Tibbles had a whole other life before drumming - A native of Los Angeles, he was a TV writer for such shows as "The Munsters", "Bewitched", "Andy Griffith", "My Three Sons", "Family Affair", and many more.

Unhappy with show business in general, Barbara gave back her major label advance, Doug quit his one-day-old job as story editor for "Happy Days", and they went underground. Doug took up drums and son John took up bass at age eleven. Reclusive by choice, the band moved from L.A. to Western Massachusetts to write and woodshed. They began playing the occasional show while recording in their cellar.

When best selling author Elmore Leonard ("Get Shorty", "Jackie Brown", "Out of Sight") walked in the Troubadour in L.A. one night looking for inspiration for his sequel to "Get Shorty", he discovered The Stone Coyotes.

They became the model for Chili Palmer's next adventure, "Be Cool". Leonard said, " It was music I could understand...straight ahead rock and roll with a twang. And there are good stories going on in the songs." He included their lyrics in the book and dedicated it to them. He and the band made a string of appearances together around the country with a Words and Music Tour - from New York's Mercury Lounge to L.A.'s Viper Room.

With support from XM Satellite Radio's XCountry, along with loyal AAA and college stations, the band has built a strong following from New England to Texas, from coast to coast. On their own label, self-produced, no hype, no roadies, they have ridden hard on the Road Not Taken - playing, writing and recording six albums. By Internet and word-of-mouth, theirs has become music of the people, by the people, and for the people. This is their brand new CD, Fire It Up. Rock on.

Loved "Ghost of Vicksburg"
I really enjoyed your album, specifically "The Ghost of Vicksburg." I found a review by blogger Heath Andrews that sums up the song beautifully.

"The Stone Coyotes draw heavily from folk music in their tale about the American Civil War and the bonds that it tore asunder. Like the best folk songs, “The Ghost of Vicksburg” tells a story with clearly defined characters and in this case, a tragic ending. The melody is built upon the piano and acoustic guitar and features a great drum beat and just enough touches of electric guitar to add some muscle to the arrangement. It’s a masterfully written lyric that would stand on its own even without the musical accompaniment. "

Great Album
I thought the whole album was great. I saw a review by Wildy Haskell that talks about Ghost perfectly. "Barbara Keith engages in classic singer/songwriter storytelling, detailing the filial split of two brothers caught on opposite sides of the battles lines during the Civil War. This American tragedy find the two standing each other down across the field and firing, with one bullet flying wide and the other finding its mark. This is an amazing piece of song craft that aptly captures the sense of tragedy of a war that pulled families, and nearly a nation, apart. (5/5)"

LOVE THIS SONG/LOVE THIS BAND!
The hearty guitar work of The Stone Coyotes suggests a spoken word/country vein that is upfront and bold. The female vocals are poignant and indicative of Trish Murphy and Shawn Colvin with more of a Lucinda Williams touch. The guitar, piano, and light percussion set the tone in a very emotive way.

First Class CD
I've long been a fan and try to see your show each time you're in Houston. Fire It Up keeps the fire burning--which is what the Stone Coyotes' talent is perfect at.
Take it easy; don't try to change your sound--percussion, bass and voice are beautifully balanced. I don't know how three people can make so much great sound, but do keep it up!
