Fox & Coyote’s “Scattered Shadows on a Double Bed” is a sonic panorama – juxtaposing hushed confessions with raging guitar solos, thick cello crescendos with existential howls. Lyrically, the songs are self-critical, romantic, anxious, and sincere. With “Scattered Shadows on a Double Bed,” Fox & Coyote showcases their most ambitious work yet.
“The cool earnestness of Fox & Coyote makes them immediately relatable despite their more avant garde elements.” – City Pages
Ten years ago, Ryan Evans and Jonathan Harms – Fox & Coyote’s songwriters – first played together. From the get-go, they sensed a creative energy between them. Audiences felt it, too, often saying there was “something special” when the two performed as a duo. It wasn’t long before Fox & Coyote’s musical ideas needed more than a guitar, banjo, and two voices. In addition to Ryan (lead vocals, guitar) and Jonathan (lead vocals, banjo, keys), Fox & Coyote is Katherine Canon (cello, vocals), Grant Gordon (upright bass, electric bass), and Kenny Befus (drums).
Over the years, Ryan and Jonathan have grown as friends and as musical partners, learning to harness the energy that first brought them together. They act as co-directors, pushing Fox & Coyote beyond what listeners expect from a guitar-banjo songwriting duo.
