Coyote Willow 

EP: "Falling to Home"

Coyote Willow is a duo made up of classically trained Kat Hilst and barroom practiced Tim Coffey. This group's style was once (and accurately) described by a fan as "progressive acoustic with Americana influence." Although hard to explain, the music is easy to understand. If the name sounds familiar, that's because it probably is. The EP [extended play recording], "Falling to Home," was thoughtfully put together by the pair. They wanted to give the world a taste of some of their best music, so song selection for the EP was key.

"These songs were a good representation of us...we really wanted [the music] to attract people," says Coffey. The music scene in Bend, they agreed, is not only the most active that they have seen, but the most supportive.

"We are really grateful to be able to play music here," says Hilst.

After listening to her, it becomes very apparent that Hilst has been classically trained. Her hands and fingers on stringed instruments, such as the cello, seem to be an extension of her own body. Her voice personifies a loose stroll through a meadow. Music and song by Hilst can be set as an elegant conversational piece, something to ease the mind and soften a day. Coffey, on the other hand, like his name, provides the jolt to attention. Many barroom sessions behind this baritone have created a voice and heart to match. If bets were to be made, he is the coyote, and she the willow.

This musical and romantic pair performs live shows regularly, with absolutely no intention of slowing down. Just in the next couple of weeks Coyote Willow will perform at Portello's on April 9, The Blacksmith Restaurant on April 15, Dudley's on April 16, and Chow on April 17.
