Rising Americana act Nick Gusman and The Coyotes release self-titled album

[St. Louis, Missouri] - Noted St. Louis-based Americana act Nick Gusman and The Coyotes will hold an album release show at Off Broadway (509 Lemp Ave, St. Louis, MO 63118) on Sunday, December 19, 2021. This event celebrates the release of the band’s first album self-titled “Nick Gusman and The Coyotes.”

While the album is Gusman’s second, it is his first with his band The Coyotes, who are well-known regionally and on the St. Louis scene. Locally, Nick Gusman and The Coyotes have performed live across the area and have opened for national touring acts like Charley Crockett, RC and The Ambers and Cody Canada. In a heavily saturated Americana market, Gusman’s songwriting and intricate sound is gaining a national presence by touring extensively across the Midwest, as well as the East and West coasts and Alaska.

“Nick Gusman and The Coyotes” clearly demonstrates the maturity gained in the years since his debut album “Dear Hard Times.” Gusman’s songwriting is backed by a driving, talented band of musicians. With dazzling guitar sweeps and lively fiddle, Nick Gusman and The Coyotes deliver a full wave of Americana sound to an audience who cannot help but sing along.

However, Gusman still takes his cues from his heroes Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan, and sings about people and places that are familiar yet purposely ignored. He gleams inspiration from his own life, relationships and tribulations, yet he has an unnervingly accurate way of telling a story through someone else’s eyes. It’s like he can drop in and out of people’s lives in order to paint a devastatingly honest mural of American life.

Tickets are on sale now and are $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the show. Doors open at 7 P.M. and music starts at 8 P.M. with St. Louis favorites The Wilderness and Old Capital kicking off the show. “Nick Gusman and The Coyotes” will be available on Spotify and Apple music on December 17, 2021.
