I had the chance to chat with Teagan Johnston from Toronto three-piece band, Little Coyote for this segment of Five Questions With! Now’s your chance to find out more about the band, and if you’re able to catch them on July 1, 2017 at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, you definitely should.
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi! My name is Teagan Johnston, I play synth, piano and sing in the band Little Coyote.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style
The band and I tend to enjoy drawing inspiration from darker or more dreamy elements of our life. We only recently started writing more collectively which has been an interesting transition. I come from a much more classical and folk background and the two of them from more progressive rock spaces, so the marriage of the two has really created I suppose our “style.”
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Our next show will be on July 1st (Canada day) at the Horseshoe Tavern. I’d say during our live show we tend to get quite a lot louder and rowdier than people might expect from our online presence. We are a fairly introspective band which I think still comes across live but we do like to let loose with the crowd and have fun.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Hmm, we don’t have much music out as of yet so it’s a little tricky, but I think my pick would be our newest release “Electric.”
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Oh my there are almost too many to name, but If I can, I’ll say my current top five..
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
