"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 They have been taking "the road less travelled" ever since they gave back songwriter Barbara Keith's major label advance years ago and began searching for their own sound their own way in a cellar in Western MA. With five songs featured in Elmore Leonard's novel, "Be Cool" and more recently five songs on 'Dog the Bounty Hunter', they gained national attention, but it is the grass roots, word-of-mouth response to their music that continues their momentum. 'A Rude Awakening' is their ninth studio album.
