John Cowan

John Cowan got his start in Louisville, where he played in scrappy rock outfits like Everyday People and Louisville Sound Department. In 1974, he auditioned as a bassist and vocalist for New Grass Revival, and together with Sam Bush and later bandmates Béla Fleck and Pat Flynn, led the charge of the 1980s' bluegrass revival. New Grass Revival disbanded in 1990 when Fleck departed for a solo career, but Cowan didn't slow down. He did distance himself a bit from NGR's acoustic foundation, however, choosing to tour as a solo rock act as well as front the country-rock band Sky Kings (with Poco's Rusty Young). But despite writing an album, arranging the artwork, releasing a single, and setting a release date (March 27, 1997), the Sky Kings' full-length sat on a shelf. Cowan next busied himself with solo work for the Sugar Hill label. His releases there included an ambitious self-titled effort in 2000, as well as the lower-key Always Take Me Back in 2002. 2000 had also seen the final release of the Sky Kings album From Out of the Blue; the set included the entire original LP, as well as demos and songs that were subsequently completed for the project. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

John anybody from Evansville is OK by me, you are a wonderful entertainer.
No Cowan? PANDORA come on!!! People need to hear this incredible voice. Clear, strong, and he can really hold a note and make it amazing! Saw him with New Grass in Cleveland OH and he tore the place up! Listen to that note he holds on Calling Baton Rogue or the fantastic singing on Can/'t Stop Now. Get 'er' done PANDORA!!!!
And no mention of Cowan's time with the Doobie Brothers? Huh? Btw, he's back touring with them now. Also, very nice work from Mr. Cowan with the Grooveyard lineup. Check their CD Lost Weekend.
I've been a follower of John Cowan for many years. No one else has a voice like his or will have. His voice is as beautiful as his soul. Love JC!!

J.C.'s vocal on Oh Darling (Live Art, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, 1996) blew me away. Operatic-roc k - j a z z - h a r d to put a name on it.

I don't understand why Pandora will not or can not add the cd I requested of John's. It is so great! He's also been active at Telluride in the past though I haven't followed that. I believe he is included on some of their cds. Come on Pandora.
Just as great a person,vocal s and bass playing are just a couple of talents that come with him.

I would like to hear his "John.Cowan" cd on this site. It is his best cd in my book. I love the songs and the way he sings them is just wonderful. My copy finally died and I hadn't backed it up :-( I can't afford a new one at the moment.
Maybe one of the best voices in any genre. Great live! Go John Go!
The best voice in all of Blue Grass
