Hi. I’m Ted Drozdowski. Welcome to my Coyote Motel. I hope you enjoy your stay!
In case you don’t know me, I’m a moderately successful guitarist, songwriter, singer and producer, and I live in Nashville, Tennessee, with my wife, Laurie, and our dog Dolly. We’ve got a good thing going.
And if you’re wondering how to pronounce my name, it’s three syllables: Droz-dow-ski.
There’s a chance you might know my other band, Scissormen. We’ve toured the U.S and played Europe, hitting everything from juke joints to coffeehouses to Bonnaroo, and put out six releases, including my previous, Love & Life, and the DVD/CD set BIG SHOES: Walking and Talking the Blues, which includes a 90-minute movie by the great music documentary filmmaker Robert Mugge. It debuted at the Starz Denver Film Festival, which I think is cool enough to mention. Along the way, we’ve gotten a lot of airplay and many people have said and written nice things about us.
Coyote Motel is cosmic roots music. I’ve always heard what Great American Music as a glorious continuum, and I believe that, like parallel universes, all of the sounds that it encompasses exist and can be heard at the same time.
