“The Stone Coyotes are a family trio. But don’t expect lace curtains, casseroles or Partridge Family kitsch. With songwriter Barbara Keith on electric guitar and vocals, husband Doug Tibbles on drums, and stepson John Tibbles on bass, this band rocks – and they mean it.” - ELLA MAGAZINE

“You can’t enter lightly into an association with The Stone Coyotes. Casual music fans need not apply. If rock and roll is important to you, this music will move your soul… The most honest rock band in the business. Anthems, ballads, and battle cries. Bass, guitar, and drums. It’s as simple as that.” - THE UNION NEWS

Barbara Keith began her career at the Café Wha? in Greenwich Village, following in the footsteps of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Rivers, and many others who got their start in that hallowed dive. She was soon recording for MGM/Verve, A&M, and Warner Brothers. Her songs have been covered by such diverse artists as Tanya Tucker, Barbra Streisand, The Dillards, Melanie, Hank Snow, Lowell George - and now Patty Loveless, who covered “The Bramble and the Rose” on her Mountain Soul II album. Her husband Doug Tibbles had a whole other life before drumming – A native of Los Angeles, he was a TV writer for such shows as “The Munsters”, “Bewitched”, “Andy Griffith”, “My Three Sons”, “Family Affair”, and many more. Unhappy with show business in general, Barbara gave back her major label advance, Doug quit his one-day-old job as story editor for “Happy Days”, and they went underground. Doug took up drums and son John took up bass at age eleven. Reclusive by choice, the band moved from L.A. to Western Massachusetts to write and woodshed. They began playing the occasional show while recording in their cellar. When best selling author Elmore Leonard (“Get Shorty”, “Jackie Brown”, “Out of Sight”) walked in the Troubadour in L.A. one night looking for inspiration for his sequel to “Get Shorty”, he discovered The Stone Coyotes. They became the model for Chili Palmer’s next adventure, “Be Cool”. Leonard said, “ It was music I could understand…straight ahead rock and roll with a twang. And there are good stories going on in the songs.” He included their lyrics in the book and dedicated it to them. He and the band made a string of appearances together around the country with a Words and Music Tour – from New York’s Mercury Lounge to L.A.’s Viper Room. Their music has been in soundtracks for various films, including "D3: The Mighty Ducks", "Drillbit Taylor", and "Lawless Range", as well as 9 episodes of "Dog the Bounty Hunter". Recent addition to the Coyote lineup: Doug Tibbles, Jr. plays lead guitar along with brother John. With 14 albums under their belt, the band's newest release is "SALLY IN THE DOORWAY".
