Davy Cowan: Singer, Songwriter, Guitar Slinger, Troubadour, Poet & Post Punk Gent. Davy Cowan's songs encapsulate the essence of many of the stories and situations that have inspired him over the years: people, places, old memories, faces; journeys on trains, ferries, planes - and a clapped out converted Ford Transit minibus. The red morning sky; thunder clouds over the Cromarty Firth & her rusting meccano set oil rigs, which cast a menacing shadow across the shores beneath them. The Love and The Pain and the Beauty of witnessing offspring grow - ever evolving - linking the future with a long forgotten past which in our time now is destined to be!
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, his acoustic based contemporary Folk/Roots music - with its hints of Bluegrass, Country and Pop - still manages to retain the spirit & sensibilities of punk rock.
