Coyote Island is the musical vision of producer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Mike O’Hehir. For many years Mike travelled the country with guitar in hand collecting sounds and ideas. Upon returning home to Maine, he began the process of pouring his heart into recordings. With roots in folk music, the sound quickly expanded into a new genre-bending realm of psychedelic indie. Mike assembled a band of brothers in order to capture the expansive soundscape in a live setting. From this, Coyote Island was born. With the release of their first hit single “Here Before”, the band quickly gained fans around the globe. Their live performance has been called both “electric” and “transportive”. With good vibrations, dancey grooves, and tropical psychedelia, Coyote Island offers you a sonic vacation from the doldrums of existence.
