Devon Coyote is known as the Okanagan's most captivating and magnetic band West of the Rocky Mountains. Their aggressively energetic live show can be seen captivating audiences from small bars to large festival stages.
In today’s modern music, it can be hard to find genuine, good music that
speaks to a real audience. Devon Coyote’s timeless fusion of Roots,
Rock and Blues does just that. Their
shared passion for creating great music and a fierce determination to be
heard, have led the boys to humble success in the Canadian Indie music
Years ago, Devon Bjarnason carved a path into Western Canada’s touring circuit, winning over fans and venues with his passion, presence and strong songwriting. As his sound grew, he recruited a rock-solid rhythm-section by joining forces with drummer/percussionist Rod Anderson and bassist/multi-instrumentalist D’Arcy Booth.
Rather than a revolving door of hired session players, the Coyotes are a band of brothers; sharing hundreds of nights in grimy motels and long, marathon drives in old vans. This off-stage chemistry and camaraderie transfers to their live show for an electric and energetic experience.
Devon Coyote pride themselves on their self-managed and completely D.I.Y. approach. Tour Booking, Social Media, Graphic Design, Video Editing, Website Design, Networking and all other elements of a successful independent band are handled in-house by The Trio and their skilled team.
The band has proven themselves as top shelf performers, directly supporting George Thorogood and The Destroyers, Blue Rodeo and 54-40 on multiple dates in Western Canada. They have also provided direct support for The Wild, Current Swell, The Harpoonist and The Axe Murderer, Wil, Daniel Wesley, July Talk, Shred Kelly, Alex Cuba, Yukon Blonde, Emerson Drive and many more prominent artists.
Notable festival appearances include: Salmon Arm Roots & Blues, Rifflandia, Centre of Gravity, Keloha Music & Arts, Wapiti, Sunstroke, Harvest Fest, Music On The Mountain, Invermere Music Festival, Golden Sound and Desert Live. In their travels they have also been fortunate to share the stage and jam with the likes of Harry Manx, members of Canned Heat, Matt Mays & Adam Baldwin, Sherman Doucette and more.
“While driving through Revelstoke, I caught a Devon Coyote track on Stoke FM and it stopped me in my tracks. As soon as I got back to my office, I booked Devon for the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues. At the festival, Devon Coyote stopped everyone else in their tracks. It is so rewarding when a guy you rolled the dice on delivers beyond your wildest dreams”.
Hugo Rampen - Executive Director
Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival
“We have had the pleasure of booking Devon Coyote for numerous events over the years including our two festivals, KELOHA and Center of Gravity. The band’s talent, diversity as musicians and ability to play intimate acoustic shows to full-on rock parties, has made them one of the most frequently booked artists by Wet Ape Productions. It is truly a remarkable and memorable experience watching this band perform. I highly recommend you put them on your radar."
