about

On July 29th, Folk Rock Band, The Coteries, released their debut EP “Reason in the Road”. This female-fronted trio brings you music steeped in their travels on the back roads of America in their old VW Bus, Trusty Rusty. The debut EP will be available on www.TheCoteries.com, with digital distribution through iTunes, Amazon, and other major online outlets.
In the summer of 2014 the trio quit their day jobs, bought a VW Bus, and took off on an 11,000 mile journey across North America. Aside for some freezing August nights in Wyoming it was the best decision of their lives. With their inaugural year and over 200 shows behind they’re continuing their momentum into 2016 with a recent endorsement from GoWesty as traveling ambassadors. They’ve gone from small farmer’s markets and corners of bars to major festivals like Divide Music Festival sharing the stage with artists Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Blondie, and The Fray.
Recorded at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia, PA and mixed/produced by Josh Gannet (Redman, John Ginty, Keith Richards, Slash), this is their take on modern folk. Bolstering their sound with acoustic guitars, mandolin, a stomp box, harmonicas and various other instruments they’ve picked up along the way, “Reason in the Road” is a reflection of all they have experienced discovering themselves and the American countryside.

Track Name: I'm Travelin' On
I’m Travelin’ On

been to California
been to Washington too
packed away my whole life
did it all for you

seen a Georgia sunrise
headed up the coast
pulling into Maine now
it's where it hurts the most

'cuz you're not with me
where did I go wrong?

Cold and wet in the morning
in the Flagstaff sun
headed to Sedona
we were on the run

Made our way through Texas
crescent city bound
hold up in Beaumont
where we broke down

but you're not here now
and I'm travelin' on
you're not here now
and I'm travelin' on

been to California
been to Washington too
packed away my whole life
I was looking for you

all of these places
that we've been to
they don't mean a thing now
that I'm not with you

but you're not here now
and I'm travelin' on
you're not with me
where did I go wrong?

and the days keep rolling, rolling by
and the days keep rolling, into nights
and the days keep rolling, rolling by

where did I go wrong
where did I go wrong
where did I go wrong
well, I'm travelin' on
Track Name: Run, Run Elmira
Well she drove all night through Tennessee
straight into the dawn
she spent her whole life rambling
it kept her hanging out

but she wore a look in her eyes
you could see all she'd been through
she'd be running her whole life
so what was she to do?

Chorus
Run, Run Elmira
it's catching up to you
Run, Run Elmira
yah you're through, yah you're through, yah you're through

Her dad he gambled with the law
and lost his hand too soon
so her Mama worked job to job
it kept her on the move

Oh she swore she'd never be that way
but look at what she's done
just when you thought she might stay
she's back out on the run

Chorus
Run, Run Elmira
it's catching up to you
Run, Run Elmira
yah you're through, yah you're through, yah you're through

She always loved that time of day
before the sun went down
when she was just another face
moving through a town

Chorus
Run, Run Elmira
it's catching up to you
Run, Run Elmira
yah you're through, yah you're through, yah you're through
Track Name: Reason in the Road
Reason in the Road

My sister she found Jesus
my mom she’s got a fix
I’ve never had a meaning
for any of it

So i spent my last dime on a life I’d like to lead
hoping that the road will fix me

My father he’s hard working
my brother’s got a wife
I’ve never had a reason
for that kind of life

So i spent my last dime on a life I’d like to lead
hoping that the road will fix me

CHORUS
Well did I break down
just to figure out
how to make it on my own
what’s someone
without any love
without a place to call a home?

I hope there’s reason in the road (x4)

Well I heard that you got married
had yourself a kid
I hope that you are happy
in the life you chose to live

Cuz i spent my last dime on a life I’d like to lead
hoping that the road will fix me

CHORUS
Well did I break down
just to figure out
how to make it on my own
what’s someone
without any love
without a place to call a home?

I hope there’s reason in the road (x4)
Track Name: Water's Getting Too High
Water's Getting Too High

we're sitting by a fire in a house that's not a home
I can't remember when it ever felt like one
cuz I'm sitting here with you but I'm all alone
that look in your eyes says it all

we took our cheap shots right through the chest
we kept firing til we had nothing left
and I'm so afraid we're both not done yet
I think it's time that we call it quits

Chorus
And go before the water gets too high
we both can make it out alive
Oh I never wanted to say goodbye
but the water's getting too high

There once was a time when our love ran deep
it cut through us both like a roaring stream
we thought it was all that we would ever need
but somewhere we lost you and me

now your words run through me like fire in the wind
how can you say these things after all that you did
we've taken everything we both had to give
and honey I can't keep going on like this

Chorus
Let's go before the water gets too high
we both can make it out alive
Oh I never wanted to say goodbye
but the water's getting too high
the water's getting too high
Track Name: Ain't No Time
Ain’t No Time (To Make You Mine)

Verse 1

I woke up lying in your arms

wondering how we got this far.

Stayed too long, I must go

I was meant for the open road.

ain’t got no time to make you mine

Verse 2

Well you must have the wrong idea about me

I never wanted to shake your tree.

All I want is good company

there’s too much left for us to be.

ain’t got no time to make you mine

Chorus
So come on darling rock me slow

put your arms around me, hold me close

I like you right by my side

but you know there’s just no time

Oh to make you mine

Verse 3

Well I’ve been going on this way

for as long as I’ve known my name,

so don’t you think you can change

someone who said they’ll never break.

I ain’t got no time to make you

Chorus
come on don’t you rock the boat

this old ship won’t stay afloat

Just love me like we both know

don’t make it hard for me to go.

Oh I ain’t got no time make you mine

Bridge
We all need someone

to come home

And I hope that one

looks just like you

Chorus

come on darling rock me slow

put your arms around me, hold me close

I want you right by my side

but you know there’s just no time

Oh to make you mine

Bridge

We all need someone

to come home

And I hope that one

looks just like you

We all need someone

to come home

And I hope that one

looks just like you

So come on darlin rock me slow

put your arms around me, hold me close
