"Blues Blast Review "South Bay Jive" 2009"

[Coyote] Slim has an authentic blues voice, rich
and powerful, sounding like he was born and
raised in the heart of the Mississippi delta. He
picks out captivating rhythms on his guitar that
dance around his vocal lines. Slim penned
seven of the tunes and most of them sound as
good as the five classic songs that he covers.
...
Like the best acoustic bluesmen, Coyote Slim
bends and stretches the standard blues formats
into his own style. From one cut to the next, he
dazzles you with outstanding guitar playing and
a voice that was made for a juke joint. And the
performances held up over repeated listens.
Slim certainly made a believer out of me – and
South Bay Jive is highly recommended!!! "

"Recommendation from Farmer's Market Manager"

June 22, 2017
Re: Recommendation for Coyote Slim
I had the pleasure of being contacted by Coyote Slim to perform at the San Ramon Farmers’ Market at Forest Home Farms. He had performed at the Market before so we brought him back but this was my first time meeting him as the new Market Manger. I’ll never forget the moment he waltzed up to me with his gear in hand, he was ready to perform and I was delighted to see his demeanor matched his music.
Slim harmonized the tone of our Market perfectly! His attire, music and overall persona as Coyote Slim played very well into the feel of our environment. Slim is ‘bluesy’, his rhythm and sound is rich like the Mississippi Delta. He is the benchmark of the “California Delta Blues” and you will want to listen to his words. Although he has his own speakeasy lyrics in every tune, he will sing to the crowd in a more inclusive way. He might even sing a little about you as you stroll on by and giggle a bit! It’s really a fun and relaxing experience to have Slim join in the fun.
The San Ramon Farmers’ Market made Slim a favorite and he joins the Markets regularly. His music is raw and relaxing and his personal temperament is just ‘cool’. You’re gonna want to be friends with Slim.

"Can't Stay Here Long Album Review by Rhys Williams"

"No mere copyist, Slim takes on various classic blues songs (as well as writing some himself) and re-imagines them to give each a fresh perspective. "

"Coyote Slim has released a very enjoyable and solid album of solo acoustic and electric blues. He is a fine guitar player and is blessed with a booming voice that is wholly authentic and that fits his music perfectly. Great stuff." - Blues Blast Magazine

Bio

Coyote Slim is a modern songster, who plays traditional blues and old-time songs often interjected with stories and verses drawn from his own experiences working in the outdoors in California's mountains, woods, and urban jungles. His brand of rootsy, down-to earth blues is loved by people of all ages and musical tastes. He has performed at several festivals, recorded at BigTone studios, and on his own expense produced several shows in California showcasing other blues talent, an endeavor he hopes to continue should he climb out of the mountain of debt he currently finds himself in.  You will find Slim on weekends gigging at farmer's markets or the odd bar or BBQ joint, and not at blues jams during the week as he often works 48-52 hours in his day job trying ensure public safety and prevent wildfires (and pay for the high cost of California livin').
