DARIUS DEGHER – COYOTE CANTOS – ALBUM REVIEW

Darius Degher Coyote Cantos

It’s easy to see why Coyote Cantos was nominated for Best Local Recording at this year’s San Diego Music Awards. The CD has a warm tone that gives Degher’s poetry a chance to breathe underneath the cadence of the band. And if you just let it play a few times over while going through your day, the songs broaden, and the layers of these cantos shine.

DARIUS DEGHER’S LEUCADIA LOVE SONG

Darius Degher

There haven’t been too many songs that have name-checked San Diego over the years. Tom Waits gave us “San Diego Serenade;” Springsteen throws in a mention about a french restaurant in “Rosalita;” Bing Crosby crooned about when the surf meets the turf in Del Mar; and more recently, Paul Cannon offers the San Diego (Padres semi theme?) song “Homegrown.” None of these, though, possess the hometown adulation that Darius Degher pours into his single “Leucadia Love Song.”
