Tom Petty

Tom Petty had an enormous impact on our lives. I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say that The Coffis Brothers wouldn’t exist had it not been for Tom Petty. Myself, Jamie, Kyle, and Aidan all wrote a little something about Tom Petty and his profound influence he’s had on all of us.

Kellen –

After hearing about the horrific events at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas, the only thing I wanted to do was sit in my room, play guitar and sing. It seemed like the only thing to do. I was never able to do that on Monday as the news of Tom Petty came shortly thereafter, but if I had I surely would have played a Tom Petty song…or ten Tom Petty songs, because that’s what I’ve always done. I sit on my bed, strum some chords on my guitar, and at some point I break into a Tom Petty song. I never know which one it will be but inevitably I play one. Or like I said, ten.

The connection I’ve felt to Tom’s music is one that I’ve never experienced anywhere else. It’s touched me in a way that’s difficult to explain and even understand. Most of the great music in my life was introduced to me from my parents, but I discovered Tom Petty myself. I can remember the feeling I had the first time I listened to Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Greatest Hits album on my friend’s Ipod driving back from a soccer game. I remember buying tapes of Wildflowers and a live bootleg from the Fillmore at a yard sale and playing the shit out of that Wildflowers tape that Summer until it didn’t play anymore. I remember getting Hard Promises and Long After Dark on my 15th birthday, the time Jamie brought a burned copy of Echo home from college, or the Summer before my senior year in High-School when Highway Companion came out and listening to it over and over again and making all my friends listen to it over and over again. There was a certain feeling I got listening to Tom Petty songs and then another feeling of singing and playing Tom Petty songs. It was addicting. I was compelled to sit down and play his songs. I would come home from school and couldn’t do anything else until I played the song I needed to play. In the past few days I’ve heard multiple people say Tom Petty played the soundtrack to their lives. Well, that’s probably true for me too, but I’m pretty sure Tom played a bigger role for me. He didn’t just play the soundtrack to my life, I’m pretty sure he’s directed the whole damn thing.

I was a musician before I first heard Tom Petty but after I heard Tom, everything changed. He taught me how to write a song, how to sing, how to deliver a lyric, how to perform, and how to lead a band. Tom taught me what rock and roll was and what rock and roll could be, and who better to learn from than Tom? For a teenager who wanted to sing and play guitar, there was no better role model than Tom. For a 27 year old there’s no better role model than Tom. Tom was passionate and stubborn in his beliefs, he fought back when he sensed injustice, he was gracious and loyal to his band, peers, and fans, and he always seemed to stand on the side of right. Tom Petty was just fucking cool. Tom Petty was my hero.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Tom. I saw Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers two times last month at the Greek Theater in Berkeley and the shows moved me every bit as much as it did the first time I saw them 12 years earlier at the Greek. And in typical Tom fashion, he put on a show that was unforgettable. Although I believe Tom still had a lot to give, Tom gave me (and all of us) so much and I am so grateful to have been touched by his music the way I’ve been. I know I’ll never experience anything like that again.

I am far from the first person to say this, but Tom’s songs are timeless and relatable in a way that’s uncanny. You can love one of his songs, listen to it 100 times and suddenly on the 101st listen you’ll hear the song like you’ve never heard it before, and then on the 200th listen it’ll happen again. I’ve experienced this feeling over and over again as I’ve gotten older. On Monday night I listened to Jamie who was DJ’ing at KPIG where he played all Tom Petty. Some of the songs he played I hadn’t heard in a couple years while some I’d heard  just days before and once again I started to hear the songs in a new way. I’m sure these songs will change for me in 5, 10, and 20 years from now. The only thing that won’t change is that I’ll always be listening to Tom Petty and I’ll always be sitting in a room playing his songs.

Tom Petty’s influence on me is profound. It can’t be overstated. The reason I like the music I like is because of Tom Petty. The reason I play the music I play is because of Tom Petty. I am devastated by his passing but I am so grateful to have had Tom Petty in my life. It’s one of the most special things I’ve ever experienced.

Jamie-
I remember finding a cassette tape of  Wildflowers in our garage the summer before I went to college. That was really what got the ball rolling. That album struck me in a very unique way. Songs like “Wildflowers,” “You Wreck Me” and “Honeybee” made my ears perk up immediately. I had heard Tom Petty’s hits as everyone has, many of them are unavoidable if you have even a mild interest in rock and roll. I thought they were all good songs, but this was different. This was exotic and extremely intriguing and it made me re-examine the hits. All of a sudden those were really interesting to me as well. A seed had been planted.
As college dragged on I became a bit disillusioned and rudderless. I was going through a pretty unproductive time in my life, except for the fact that I was busy diving head first into Petty’s catalog. I had developed an unquenchable thirst for Petty. I was swallowing album after album, bonus track after unreleased rarity and becoming intimate with all of it. Kellen was something of a sherpa in this endeavor as he was doing the same thing back home, but always a record or two ahead of me. I can remember him showing me the She’s the One soundtrack during a weekend I was back home. The song “Walls” killed me. “Change the Locks” captivated me every time it came on. Record after record, I was finding pure gold, I was digging through a seemingly endless supply of songs that I wanted to listen to over and over again. Petty was blowing my freaking mind.
This obsession was what eventually brought me back to the piano. I had taken lessons as a youngster and an adolescent but I had drifted away from playing music in my later teens. I was being consumed with this music though and I felt compelled to sit down and play. I was out of practice, and basically a novice at piano (I still pretty much am, I digress) but I was just proficient enough to pick out a few of them. “Walls”, “Free Falling”, and “Learning to Fly” were among the first I learned to play and sing.  Almost immediately my obsession became two fold, listen to Tom Petty, and then play and sing Tom Petty, and then repeat. I started cutting class to go to the practice rooms at San Francisco State which were just a couple of hallways in the Creative Arts building lined with a dozen or so rooms about the size of a closet with a piano in them. I’d spend hours in these rooms. I’d go down on the weekends sometimes, hoping the doors would be unlocked and sometimes they were! I was addicted. Tom Petty was at the center of it. I branched out a little eventually. The catalog of Jeff Lynne, who was the producer of several Petty records, front man of E.L.O and a member of The Traveling Wilbury’s, was devoured promptly. Other Petty related artists fared similarly. Petty had given me the playbook and I was giving myself a crash course in rock and roll while at the same time re-discovering some of the music I was exposed to and loved as a child. (thanks mom)
I was dabbling with my own songs a little bit also, but nothing much was doing on that front until I was played a CD by my parents of some songs Kellen had written and recorded. These were extremely rough recordings mind you but it didn’t matter. The fire was officially lit. The new obsession now was trying to write songs. I was coming up with a bunch of stuff, most of it not very great admittedly, but some of it was kinda sorta ok. Ok enough to think I was maybe on to something. My sensibilities were firmly intact thanks to Tom and his band. I now spent just about all of my time trying to think of something that sounded like a Tom Petty song whether or not I was in front of a piano. About a decade later hardly anything has changed.
Kellen and I started performing around town after I came home from college and eventually got a band together with our fellow Petty fan boy friend and guitarist Kyle Poppen. A lot has occurred since, including brainwashing bassist Aidan Collins, and really, anybody that would listen into joining our unofficial fan club, meanwhile covering “You Wreck Me” I don’t even know how many times. There were plenty other Petty related milestones along the way as well. Seeing him live several times was monumental obviously, as was the release of a handful of new records, all of which were greeted with significant Coffis Brother fan fare. We even got the chance to open for and meet a member of the Heartbreakers, guitarist Mike Campbell. To this day probably the coolest thing the Coffis Brothers have ever done in my opinion.
Monday was a real shitty day. Details from the horrific shooting in Las Vegas were still unfolding and then more terrible and shocking news followed. I can’t really explain how I was feeling, maybe numb was the word? I was scheduled to D.J at KPIG that night which just didn’t sound fun at all. A really nice text from my boss Laurie breathed some life into me and I was told to play all Petty all night and bring in some stuff I might have that the station wouldn’t.  I felt a bit like I had a duty to fulfill. I started going through the collection and grabbed a couple of CD’s that I thought might have some cool stuff on them but looked like they wouldn’t work. I put the first one in and skipped through until I found a track that actually played, it was a bad ass song called “God’s Gift to Man,”  just a random outtake that I hadn’t heard in a few years. Right around the end of the first chorus, I was flooded with emotion and I broke down. An intense mixture of nostalgia and grief poured through me. The rest of the night I was riding waves of emotion as I listened to and recalled many of the songs that had help guide me to where I am today.
I read a quote from Tom Petty once several years ago that lead to a sort of breakthrough for me. He was asked what advice he would give to young people who weren’t sure if they should enter the music industry and he said something along the lines of “If its a ‘choice,’ then you probably shouldn’t be doing it”
Tom and his band The Heartbreakers have been my role models since before I conceived that being a musician could be a reality for me. I am so grateful for the incredible music they’ve given to the world and for the dignity, class and integrity with which they’ve carried themselves. I would like to think that at least in the smallest of ways, Im helping to carry the torch that they have passed down to the next generation of rock and roll.

Kyle-
Growing up an only child, most of my discovery in music was done on my own.  I knew who Tom Petty was, I liked his hits when they came on the radio. I didn’t necessarily know they were all his at the time.  I remember the day in 10th grade when Kellen called me on the phone to tell me about Tom Petty and that he kept digging and couldn’t find a bad song.  I pulled out his greatest hits and could confirm that yes, there was nary a bad song to be found.  Fast forward several weeks and the record has been on repeat since the phone call.  This was the beginning of the rabbit hole.  The Coffis’s had a Wildflowers tape that would play in the Volkswagen Cabriolet driving Kellen and I with the top down to and from soccer practice.  I didn’t know it then but these songs were becoming a part of me.  Part of my identity and shaping my views. I was there when Highway Companion was released and anticipated the releases of Mojo and Hypnotic Eye. Church was in session and the preacher was Petty. He always had a way of making me feel like he was talking right to me.  It was like we had a personal relationship and I could lose myself in his music anytime no matter the mood.  He taught me about love before I’d fallen in love, heartache before I’d had my heart broken and gave me a better perspective from which to view the world.  He showed me the magic in music and the power it can have. He gave me a foundation to look back on should I ever question myself.  My life is forever richer because I was alive in the era of Tom Petty.
-Kyle
Out of my friends I was a latecomer to the Petty party but like most everyone who falls in love with the music of Tom Petty, I fell very hard and very fast. What I love most about his songs are how deeply personal they feel. Tom Petty has a way of making you feel like he’s singing directly to you, connecting with you like an old friend. In the car he was my constant companion. I can’t count how many long drives I’ve spent singing Tom Petty at the top of my lungs, feeling like he was my passenger; singing with me and keeping me company. Even now it still feels like that, maybe more so than ever. If his passing has reaffirmed anything for me it’s how powerful music can be and how many people it can have a profound affect on. Everyday I’m filled with overwhelming gratitude not only for the music he left behind, but that I got to be alive during his all too brief stay on this planet. I take great comfort knowing that Tom will live on in our hearts and through his music forever. To quote a recent favorite of mine: “And it feels so good to know I got you where you belong, here in my heart, right by my side, honey you’re getting me by, yeah you’re keeping me alive.”

Pure Coffis Pork

Earlier this year Jamie Coffis became a DJ at KPIG Radio, one of Santa Cruz’s finest institutions in our opinion. On Saturday September 30th we will be headlining KPIG’s Swine Soiree as it returns to Scotts Valley after a long hiatus. With that on the mind, Jamie graciously wrote a piece about the time he has spent at KPIG this year. Here’s what he said…

With the Swine Soiree coming up this weekend I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my first few months as a DJ at KPIG. Still sounds weird to say, but I’ve been rolling around in the mud here at the sty for long enough now that a look back seems appropriate.

Laurie Roberts reached out to my brother early this year saying she was looking for “freshblood” as I believed she put it, and was looking for younger DJ’s on KPIG. Kellen mentioned myself and McCoy Tyler as possibilities. To my great surprise, Laurie responded by saying these were good ideas. I got back to her before telling McCoy about this in an effort to snake my more talented and easier to like friend. (Don’t worry, we told McCoy eventually and he considered joining the team until ultimately having to turn it down due to schedule conflicts) Laurie brought me into the sty, and the next thing I knew, I was going to be on air in a little over a week. This was a very awesome development in my life. I had been listening to KPIG since I learned to drive. One of the first public performances I ever had was when Kellen and I went on John Sandidge’s live show “Please Stand By,” and I can still vividly remember the first time I heard our song on KPIG, as we drove down to San Luis Obispo to open up a show for Jackie Greene at the old SLO Brew. We turned up the volume all the way and all got our cell phones out to document this life altering occasion. KPIG had been a big part of my life, and now I was a part of it.

I was certainly proud, but I couldn’t help but also be incredibly nervous. The truth was, and is, I don’t really know what I’m doing. Sure, I love rock and roll to death and I’ve always been a bit of a control freak when it came to what was being played in my home and cars as well as in others’ homes and cars. I’ve been known to wax poetic every now and again. Sometimes even making sense, and Ill never stop trying to make my friends chuckle at my dad-like sense of humor even if I rarely succeed. Seemingly, I had some applicable skills, but its a different story when you get in front of a microphone and talk to who knows how many loyal listeners, all with very high expectations for the brand that is “The Pig.” That was an intimidating thought. I’d expect it would be to someone with years of radio experience. I did not have much radio experience. Actually, I had exactly no experience. No matter, I dove in head first and I’ve been having a blast since I got here in March. The nerves were certainly present in the first few weeks and they like to pop in every once in a while still, but for the most part I got comfortable pretty quickly. I don’t want to be presumptuous, but I believe that I have stuttered and stammered my way to a respectable level of competency, if I don’t say so myself. I attribute that to the staff and fellow DJ’s here at the sty and also the many listeners I’ve chatted with on the phone, via email and in person at gigs. The encouragement I’ve received has been surprisingly abundant and really crucial to my success (relative!) here at the sty. I always knew KPIG had a pretty special community of listeners but I’ve  been blown away by how uniquely cool everyone has been. I can’t believe how fortunate I am to be a part of this radio station.
One of the first nights I was in the studio just before a shift, Mark Mooney was ending his shift and we got a chance to chat briefly. He summed it up pretty well I thought when he looked at me over a stack of CD’s and in a very matter of fact manner said “Its the greatest radio station in the fucking world, man.” I’ve yet to find any reason to disagree with him and don’t expect I will. Thank you sincerely KPIG and KPIG listeners for being so accepting of me even when I play the Coffis Brothers, like a lot. See you at the Soiree!

Summer Happenings

Ah man, is Summer ending? It is, right? Just the other day the Sun literally disappeared in the morning. I don’t know what that was all about. Did anybody else notice that? So what have the Coffis Brothers been up to this Summer, you ask? Let me tell you. Most notably we have released three singles from our upcoming album, Roll With It. Did you hear that? Three singles! Also, did you catch that we have a new album coming out called Roll With It? I’d say that’s some pretty big news. The feedback we’ve received regarding the new songs has been great, but in case you haven’t heard them you can listen to all three right here. http://www.coffisbrothers.com/music/

Aside from releasing new music, the Summer of 2017 has been as memorable as any. We recently spent two weeks traveling through Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado. We even had air conditioning in our van. That’s right! We got our AC fixed. I mean, that alone made this Summer memorable, but on a more serious note; as we played, what we knew would be, our last shows with Henry behind the kit, we had as much fun playing as we’ve ever had and enjoyed every one of them. (http://www.coffisbrothers.com/news/) We went deep in the vault and played some oldies, we played some brand new songs, and we even met our friend McCoy Tyler for the second half of the tour. In short, we’ve had an awesome Summer. But wait! Summer ain’t over yet. Check out our upcoming shows. (http://www.coffisbrothers.com/shows/) And anyway, we live in Santa Cruz so it always feels like Summer.

Heck, Just Read This One: Henry Chadwick

Generally these posts are pretty lighthearted. They’re a little goofy and silly and I enjoy writing them like that. This one is a little different. As we gear up to play our only club date in Santa Cruz this Summer (July 21st, Moe’s Alley) we thought we needed to let the good people of Santa Cruz, as well as all followers of The Coffis Brothers, in on some rather significant happenings in the band. Before we get to the point of this post I would just like to say this…

When Jamie and I decided we wanted to start a band, only one person came to mind when we thought about drummers. It was, of course, Henry Chadwick. For about 8 years Henry has been the drummer of The Coffis Brothers. Henry has made countless sacrifices for this band for which we can’t thank him enough. Beyond all the time, energy, and money he’s put into this band, he has been one of our closest friends, and still remains one of our closest friends. We’ve shared experiences together that we’ll never forget. Henry helped shape the sound of this band and was as influential as any of us in our songs, live performances, and studio recordings. We all fully support and believe in Henry in any of his future endeavors and although we will certainly miss him with us on stage, we feel good knowing that he has helped us create what has become a well-oiled machine that will continue to run (the well oiled-machine being this band, not our Ford van.) Jamie, Kyle, Aidan, and myself are as committed to this band as we’ve ever been and will continue performing just like we’ve always done. Don’t you worry about that. Anyway, enough from me. Let’s hear from the man himself, Henry Chadwick.

Barefoot Studios, Hollywood, CA 2016.

Hey everyone,

I’ve been putting off writing this for a while, since I want to use the right words and they have been hard to find. I come bearing bittersweet news today. I feel like I should preface this by saying just how much I love being in The Coffis Brothers and The Mountain Men. A lot. I just love this band in general. I love the music, and the group of dudes who are 4 of my best friends and quite frankly, family. I’ve had the honor and pleasure of growing up with these guys. We’ve taken off our musical/drumming/touring training wheels together and learned how to ride the musical bike, so to speak. We’ve traveled to the furthest reaches of the country together in cars, mini vans, regular vans and (on occasion) planes. We’ve slept on floors, in tents, hotels, yurts, cabins and on many couches, and they’ve put up with more than one too many of my farts in the van. According to my calculations, this is our 8th summer playing together in one form or another. It’s crazy to think about. My time spent with The Coffis Brothers has been 2 or 3 times longer than any relationship I’ve been in with anyone. That made this decision that much harder to come to.

As some of you may or may not know, I write my own songs and that has been a life-long passion. Before I started playing drums, I was primarily a songwriter. As things picked up with the brothers, the songs I was writing took somewhat of a back seat, which was great for me at the time. We spent some of the best times of my life touring and recording over the years to come. It was really exciting and fulfilling to be a part of. Last year, I released an EP of my own music that picked up a little bit of momentum. It felt really good. I had forgotten just how much I missed it. Writing and playing my songs has been the thing I’ve wanted/needed to do as long as I can remember, and somewhere deep down I knew I’d regret not dedicating more time to focus on it. This creates a dilemma, since the goal of most bands is to hopefully be busier. Time is a funny thing. It turns out you can only be in one place at any given time. We’ve been able to make things work for a while as momentum has built on both ends, and I’m nothing but appreciative for how flexible, accommodating and supportive Jamie, Kellen, Kyle and Aidan have been. After a while of cramming everything in, I started to feel things spreading thin. After a lot of contemplating and soul searching, I came to the conclusion that the best thing for me and for the boys would be for me to start phasing out of my role as drummer in the Coffis Brothers. That’s a painful sentence to write. I believe in The Coffis Brothers. I know that they are great, and will continue to do great things! In order to achieve that continued greatness in the most effective manner, this seems like the best move.

I have no doubt that we will all continue to make music together in one way or another in the future, and I look forward to seeing/watching the band’s success and cheering them on from the sidelines. They are, and will always be 4 of my best friends and brothers. Thanks again to the boys and to all who have and continue to support the music. To anyone reading this, who this may apply to: Thanks so much for letting us crash on your couch/floor, coming to shows, buying CDs and shirts, selling CDs and shirts and just hanging out with us. In short, thanks for making these past 8 years the incredible journey that they were. This is the end of a chapter, but the book has barely started! I hope to run into you all again soon. I’ll be joining the Coffis Bros. on tour over the next few weeks and I’d love to see some familiar faces. After that I’ll be playing my music around, and I hope to see you around at one of those.

Thanks again for everything! I’m looking forward to see what happens next.

Sincerely,

-Henry

You Ain’t Got The Heart Music Video

We have released the official music video for “You Ain’t Got The Heart.” This video was produced by Gadgetbox Studios, directed by Andy Zencak, and shot by Shawheen Keyani.

We shot this video over the course of one freezing cold day in Hollister, California at Tag Paintball. Despite the frigid temperatures, we had a great time and are really pleased with the whole video. We’d like to give special thanks to RJ Allen, Steven Morgan, Ben Barsochinni, all the employees at Tag Paintball, and of course our awesome warrior girls: Hayley Alger, Taylor Harrington, Ava Marinos, Ava Poitras, and Lizzie Sepeda.

Hot Seat Challenge – Mad Dog 357

We have gone to great, some might even say extreme, lengths to play our music and to have our music heard. While recording our album at Barefoot Studios we went to even greater, or perhaps extremer lengths for our music. With the recent release of You Ain’t Got The Heart, we present you with The Coffis Brothers & the Mountain Men- Hot Seat Challenge.

During our seven day stint at Barefoot Recording Studios in Hollywood we frequented a nearby burrito stand in the mornings. While scouring the Barefoot kitchen for hot sauce we encountered a certain Mad Dog 357 hot sauce. This wasn’t just your normal hot sauce. This was Mad Dog’s Silver Collector’s Edition that weighs in with a whopping 750,00 scoville units. What’s a scoville, you may be asking? We’re still not really sure, but from our research 750,000 of them is a lot. As a gift to the studio from Nickel Creek’s, Chris Thile, we thought it was only right that we try some of this hot sauce while playing one of the songs we were recording. This is the result of that attempt. We promise you that we are not acting. We are not “hamming” it up for the cameras. This is our most genuine, sincere, real reaction to eating this hot sauce. For the pain we put ourselves through we really hope you enjoy this video. That’s why we made it.

New Single Coming Soon

This isn’t THE announcement, but rather the announcement OF the announcement. That’s right, we’re making announcements for our announcements. Glad we got that squared away.

It comes with great pleasure that we can announce the release of our first Single from our upcoming full-length album for you later this week. We are really excited to share this single and album with you all. This song, along with the rest of the album, was recorded at Barefoot Studios in Los Angeles in 2016 and was produced by Andy Zenczak (Wrong Side of The Road, Waiting For You EP, and The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men.) Keep your head on a swivel as we announce the official release later this week.

We’re In The Finals!

We have advanced to the top five of the High Sierra 2017 Band Contest! We’re very excited about this as you can tell by our use of an exclamation point, which we use very sparingly. Now we need your help. Here’s how to help.
