Raised on the original outlaws of country music, Roger Cowan is bringing attitude back to the Texas music scene. Drawing influence from a life of hard-working and hard living in Texas oilfields and bars, Roger writes songs that are true to life and straight from the heart. “Turn on the radio and all you hear is love and happiness. Life ain’t like that. Life is broken dreams and drunken regrets. That’s where my muse lives. In the real world, Roger’s fans anxiously await his third album, “Do Or Die: The Blacklight Sessions.” His music is all a mix of Americana / Country and Rockabilly.
With down-to-earth lyrics and soulful vocals, Roger Cowan’s brand of music harkens back to a time when country was still country. “Gritty, down-to-earth, and about as independent as they get…”Mike Ethan Messick, Texas Music Scene.
Roger’s latest album, HickadelicSwampyTonk, has garnered positive praise from fans, as evidenced by his nomination for the 2013 East Texas Music Awards “Album of the Year.” Steady rotation on Radiofreetexas.org, where it topped the charts, has brought even more onboard the Roger Cowan train, as more and more discover this hidden Texas jewel.
Often compared to Jason Boland, Jarrod Birimingham, and Shooter Jennings, Roger proudly accepts the task of carrying on the roots of country music laid down by the true outlaws of days gone by. None of the fluff and frills so common with many acts today, Roger Cowan lets the music speak for itself.
Looking forward to an increasingly busy musical life, Roger is always ready to meet new fans and share his passion for music. Always a road warrior, Roger racks up countless miles a year spreading music across Texas. “The Roger Cowan Band takes no prisoners with their simple, straightforward approach to ass-kicking country.”
