COYOTE BROTHER- Hayward WILLIAMS & J. HARDIN
November 29 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
COYOTE BROTHER is J. HARDIN and HAYWARD WILLIAMS, two musicians who have been crossing paths for a decade on their separate songwriting journeys. After collaborating on their recent solo releases though, the two troubadours decided to come together as COYOTE BROTHER. Drawn together by the profound impact that mental illness had on their ability to create, Coyote Brother speaks to the collaborative work that can be achieved by taking a step back and re-entering the current with a strong support system.
The duo has been compared to Gillian Welch, Milk Carton Kids and Townes Van Zandt with such close harmonies and intimate atmosphere. Coyote Brother’s songs are steeped in the spirit of traditional country music with rich imagery and poignant melodies that carry the listener through the drama of the modern world.
Hardin is a Madison-based artist. From 2005 to 2013, his music appeared in numerous television spots, and he shared the stage with Gregory Alan Isakov, Over The Rhine, Sara Watkins, Jeffrey Foucault, and more. He released two records during this period, Fools & Thinkers and Visions of the Sea; touring extensively behind both before deciding to take time off to engage with and work on his “personal and mental maladjustments”.
Williams is based in Milwaukee and, like Hardin, he took time off after years of extensive touring to tend to his mental health and gain control of persisting anxieties. As a solo artist, Williams has released seven records, toured across three continents, and has shared the stage with artists such as Jose Gonzalez, Sturgill Simpson, and the Secret Sisters.
