If the road can teach you anything, it is the difference between what you need and what you don’t. Born out of the midst of an 11,000 mile North American road trip, The Coteries bring you Folk Rock music steeped in their travels and the back roads of the American countryside. Just two summers ago the female-fronted trio found their footing behind the wheel of their old VW Bus, Trusty Rusty. Aside for some freezing August nights in the mountains of Wyoming and Montana, it was the best decision of their lives. Since their return, they’ve played over 200 shows in their inaugural year bolstering their sound with acoustic guitars, mandolin, a stomp box, and harmonicas. They’ve gone from farmer’s markets and corners of bars to playing major festivals like Divide Music Festival and Harmonium Music Fest opening for Sierra Hull and performing alongside Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Blondie, Cold War Kids, and The Fray. With a recent endorsement from GoWesty (joining the ranks of artists like Gregory Alan Isakov) they’ve become traveling ambassadors as they continue their momentum into 2017. On July 29th, 2016 they released their debut EP, Reason in the Road, which is a reflection of all they have experienced discovering themselves and the American countryside. With a recent relocation from New Jersey to Fort Collins they are ready to take 2017 by storm!
