Volume 1 [edit]
by Coyote Choir | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: November 02, 2018

With their resulting debut, Volume 1, the band and producer/multi-instrumentalist Joe Causey have crafted a sound at once new and familiar. It’s a savvy blend of dazzling programming and production, vintage synthesizers, and jangly, Heartbreakers-inspired guitar. On “Awakenings,” synths and guitars chime in harmony over the assuring pulse of Linton’s drums as Jason Watkins summarizes their journey from stagnation to inspiration: “Your love was leading me to the other side.”

It’s a spirit that pulls you through the album. In fact, it’s an invitation. With songs like "Rainbows,” Coyote Choir nudges the listener to remember the music, people, and experiences that made them—to be inspired by simple joys. On “Sing!,” they declare it. The message is clear: whatever stole your voice, take it back.

Inspiring, Christ-Centered, and Brimming With Nostalgia | Posted November 02, 2018
What You Need To Know
Brothers Jason and Paul Watkins have been in the business awhile with their own respective projects. Joined by old friend Matthew Linton, the trio has produced a standout worship project that could be one of the genre’s better-kept secrets of the year.

What It Sounds Like
With throwback synths and emotive choruses, there’s a good deal of nostalgic throwback sounds here. Much of the music reminded me of songs I grew up with that released in the 80’s and 90’s in CCM, while still coming packaged with enough modern flare to remain in place with the current landscape. From moment to moment, I can pick out different influences without any dominating too much to ever become a ripoff. The slow synth key hook of “Keep The Fire Alive” stands out as one of the album’s more memorable moments, while the energy of the chorus of “Sing!” will shine as one of the most singable. 

Spiritual Highlights
This is pure, vertical music. The topics tackled are common themes in the genre, singing of the great acts or God and their effect in our lives. However, the delivery is a bit more alive than the common offerings. Whether it’s outright worship or encouragement for the Christian walk, the material should be appealing to CCM fans everywhere.  

For Fans Of
Hillsong, Matt Redman, Rick Cua, Matthew West

Best Song on the Album
Keep The Fire Alive

Final Word 
With echoes of CCM’s past, this release is a welcome and refreshing surprise for CCM worship that can serve as an alternative to those wearied from some of the current popular worship styles.

Buy Volume 1 on Apple Music or stream it on Spotify.
