singer, Songwriter, Guitar Slinger, Troubadour, Song & Dance Man
Davy Cowan grew up in a house where Folk music & Country & Western took centre stage – with the likes of Hank Williams, Charlie Pride, The Dubliners & Johnny Cash all regulars on the turntable -
His music encapsulate the essence of many of the stories and situations that have inspired him over the years: people, places, old memories, faces;
Davy's third album entitled; “Working Man‘s Dream” is produced by Martin Stephenson from 'The Daintees' - With hints of 1977 New wave/ post punk tinged with Country, Folk/ Roots, there’s plenty of light & shade. Sometimes quite mellow & plaintive, sometimes more edgy & rugged. Like, The Cars meets The Clash with a twist of Springsteen meets Cash… Stephenson pushing Cowan all the way on his vocal delivery… digging deep, finding new directions, turning different corners….
With Davy’s many different musical influences, it’s almost impossible to pigeonhole his music into any one musical genre. Within a mercurial melting pot of ideas and styles – he retains an energy and spirit that’s been ongoing through the years.
