Davy Cowan is a prominent singer/songwriter from the Highlands of Scotland, a home-grown Troubadour in the true sense of the word. His music is original, inventive and thought-provoking (The Scots Magazine) and encapsulates the essence of many of the stories and situations that have inspired him over the years: people, places, old memories, faces; sometimes quite mellow & reflective, sometimes edgy & rugged...'like the tough and vulnerable gravitas of Johnny Cash with the pleasing feel of Tom Russell' (R2 Magazine Rock 'n' Reel) or even a Scottish Steve Forbert - a mercurial melting pot of ideas and styles.
As well as being an accomplished solo artist, Davy was a founder member & front man of the Highland Celtic Rock band "Coinneach" who released 3 critically acclaimed studio albums, and he has toured extensively around the UK & Europe. 'Most importantly Davy is an original writer and outstanding performer, whose vibrant repertoire spans some 25 years!' (Martin Stephenson, The Daintees). Steeped in both counter culture and Highland tradition, Davy is a tasteful mixed bag of New Wave creative power and has a unique energy and spirit which is apparent in his solo albums, "Fragile People", "The Journey" and his last album release "Working Man's Dream” from 2013.. Davy’s 2017 release in the form of the “Rushes” EP went down a treat with his loyal army of supporters as well as receiving airplay on BBC radio Scotland, BBC radio Wales, and various other stations across Ireland & Europe.
Over the past year Davy has enlisted the talents of his 13 year old son Sam on drums & percussion.. 2017 was a busy year for them both with many festival appearances, gigs and tours up and around the UK - If there is a harder working man around at the moment I’d like to meet him; if Davy isn’t playing a gig then he’s travelling to it!
