John Cowan

A veteran of neo-country experimental groups New Grass Revival and the Sky Kings, John Cowan now leads his own ensemble, the John Cowan Band, along the cutting-edge, genre-defying musical path that has marked his illustrious career.

Though Cowan has been on the music scene for more than 25 years, he feels that the establishment of his own band has given him a new beginning and a sense of artistic freedom. “It’s kind of funny,” he reflects. “As my own person, as a songwriter, I’m just starting.”

Cowan released his second solo album, Always Take Me Back, in 2002.
