about

The Coteries are an Acoustic Americana trio born out of the midst of an 11,000 mile road trip across North America in their old VW Van, Trusty Rusty. Being inspired by the singer-songwriters of their past, The Coteries have adopted much of the same touch.

With just two guitars and a female voice in a living room, listen to their first demo to hear how this trio began. Head to their debut EP release "Reason in the Road" to hear how far they have come in a year and a half as they begin to discover themselves and the American countryside. (Released July 29th, 2016)

Track Name: Be Here Today
Why are you so worried bout tomorrow?
Isn't tomorrow just another day?
Oh you're too worried now,
you are wasting away.

Why are you always chasing stars,
don't you know that they all fade away?
Don't be left out in the dark,
be here with me today.

CHORUS
Don't burn out before your time,
just like those old stars up in the sky,
you are fading away,
be here with me today.

Why must you search for a greener life,
don't you know it all dies someday?
It only lasts for so long,
until the colors start to fade.

And we're tilted on an axis,
oh we'll never stand up straight,
don't search for solid ground
just be here with me today.

CHORUS
Don't burn out before your time,
just like those old stars up in the sky,
you are fading away,
be here with me today.
Track Name: Sweet Georgia
When it's hot in the peak of day
and I've walked 'til I have nothing left
I find you lying in the shade
can't seem to shake you from your rest

like the wind when it's too hot to bare
i touch your skin and I'm gone
I was too lost in the dark of my eyes
now all I want is for you to

CHORUS
Lay me down, Sweet Georgia
do you remember me
I'm in this city I've come so far
back to this place back to my heart
so lay me down, Sweet Georgia
Lay me down

I was gone but I was never lost
you always stayed so close to me
when the world seemed to all go dark
you were the light that helped me see

here I am I know I'm home
moving like I did before
all this time has made me realize
I need you more so come and

CHORUS
Lay me down, Sweet Georgia
do you remember me
I'm in this city I've come so far
back to this place back to my heart
so lay me down, Sweet Georgia
Lay me down
Track Name: I Hitched A Ride
Many a friend have come and gone,
some I know are gone for good,
they chased a feeling I know that I’ve had
though it may be misunderstood

Some are scraping names inside the city sky
some left it all behind for the one they love
I’ll take their names as I say goodbye
To the place I know I’ll always call my home

CHORUS
I hitched a ride out of here
Oh I know that I have nothing left to fear
this is just one stop on a long, long road
and I’ve got to go

I know those who are bathed in gold,
while some drag their feet home from war,
some live their whole lives behind a veil
on the road they always wished for

Well I don’t know where my life’s bound to go,
old friends tell me that I’ve changed
if something’s really gained when all seems lost
well I’ve got to keep on living this way

CHORUS
I hitched a ride out of here
Oh I know that I have nothing left to fear
this is just one stop on a long, long road
and I’ve got to go
Track Name: You're So Lovely
You’re so, You’re so lovely
Come close, Come close to me

Down by the river won’t you come to me,
in the heat of the night there’s no reason to leave,
The clouds are rolling in we can feel the rain but
I don’t know when I will see you again and

You’re so, You’re so lovely
Come close, Come close to me

I don’t know why I feel this way,
take me down to the levee let me feel it break
I wanna let your love was all over me
like a hurricane, brings me to my knees and

You’re so, You’re so lovely
Come close, Come close to me

Well I called to you,
under the open skies
on the open road,
oh I, Oh I
called to you,
to come back again,
and here you are,
where have you been?

You’re so, You’re so lovely
Come close, Come close to me

Well I called to you,
under the open skies
on the open road,
oh I, Oh I
called to you,
to come back again,
and here you are,
where have you been?
Track Name: Devil's Kiss
I’ve been running through the blinding rain
Travelled on the back of a steel line train
and now I have the law coming down on me
I only have myself to blame

Your crooked smile made you lie through your teeth
so I helped you down 6 feet deep
I held the shovel, I knew I was in trouble
but love can make the strongest man weak

CHORUS
I’ve rolled through life like a tumbleweed
and I bring shame to my family
when I raised hell to save myself
the devil came and kissed me in my sleep

Well I know I’m walking down a broken line
since I loaded that forty five to ease my broken mind
if love hadn’t made me track him down
I wouldn’t be running for my life

CHORUS
I’ve rolled through life like a tumbleweed
and I bring shame to my family
when I raised hell to save myself
the devil came and kissed me in my sleep

if they lock me behind bars and throw away the key
it’s all because love took a hold of me
I never meant to do what I have done
but the devil went and kissed me in my sleep
