Life After The Waybacks

I had a chance the other day to listen to a podcast interview with former Waybacks finger-picker Stevie Coyle on Michael Gaither's Songs and Stories blog. It's a loose rambling conversation covering Coyle's varied background, the Bay Area music scene and the influence of Hot Tuna. It was recorded a month before he stepped down from the Waybacks to pursue solo work.

That's well underway now, according to Coyle's MySpace page. He has been in the studio and a solo CD is on the way. And he is hitting the road beginning next week for a tour in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. Most of those dates are house concerts and intimate venues, but I imagine we see him on festival stages soon enough.

"Stepped down?" I'm not sure Stevie's departure from that band was a step DOWN at all.
