Armed with electric guitars, swooning vocals, and songs that split the difference between rock & roll and dreamy psychedelia, Angela Perley & the Howlin’ Moons pack the biggest punch of their career with Homemade Vision.

Like the band’s debut, Hey Kid — an album whose kickoff track, “Athens,” earned Perley an International Songwriting Award in 2014 — Homemade Vision was recorded in the Howlin’ Moons’ hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Many of the songs were dreamt up somewhere along the highways and backroads that crisscross America, though, coaxed into life by a group of roots-rock road warriors who regularly play more than 100 shows a year. As a result, Homemade Vision is the sort of wide-ranging record that creates its own geography, building an imaginary place where the influences of David Gilmour, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, and Nebula all intersect.

It’s also the work of a genuine band. Chris Connor’s guitar playing — a flurry of fuzz, crunch, twang and bang — occupies just as large a role as Perley’s voice, while Billy Zehnal’s bass — coupled with cymbal crashes and snare hits from an arsenal of heavy-hitting drummers — glues the mix together. Inspired by love, heartbreak, and everything in between, Homemade Vision is a battle cry from a band that’s spent years fighting the good fight, carving out their own brand of atmospheric, aggressive Americana along the way.

Rockin Billy and the Wild Coyotes
Born in Memphis, Tennessee to a school teacher and his young bride, Rockin' Billy was exposed to a wide range of musical experience. The family home was right around the corner from the "First Church of Deliverance." There, a young Billy started his career at age 14 playing music with the "Holy Rollers." At 16 his family moved to Chicago. Amidst the bustling city a young Bill formed his first band - a punk band called Sponge, after working with such luminaries as Big Black, Naked Raygun, The Effigies and a 3 month tour of New York culminating in a stint with the legendary Johnny Thunders at CBGBs.

From there Billy went on to college in Nashville and studied Political Science during the day, played country music on Lower Broadway at night. It was during this period that Billy returned to his roots and started playing Rockabilly. After a stint in Texas with Mac Curtis and Ronnie Dawson, Billy returned to Chicago and formed his own band, The Wild Coyotes. Their first recording, produced by Steve Albini, landed them critical acclaim and a successful tour of Europe. The second Coyotes album, Vive la Rock and Roll, features horns of Mr. Big Fine Daddy and Ireland Terry McFarlin.

The Coyotes are a unique blend of the Blues, country and a modern day energy that Ramones fans would admire. So listen up, America, it's Coyote time!
