JOHN COWAN SIGNS TO COMPASS RECORDS: New album “Sixty” scheduled for August 26, 2014 release

on 03 June 2014.

(Nashville, TN)–John Cowan, one of the most legendary voices in roots music, has signed a license deal Compass Records to release his new album entitled “Sixty”, slated for an August 26, 2104 release. Cowan recently completed putting the finishing touches on the project which promises to be the celebrated singer/bassist’s most ambitious and compelling solo release to date.

Working with Doobie Brothers band mate John McFee, who expertly helms the producer’s chair, Cowan has assembled an impressive list of guest artists (friends), including Leon RussellAlison KraussRodney Crowell, Bonnie Bramlett, Jim Messina, Huey Lewis, Ray Benson, John Jorgenson, Chris Hillman, Andrea Zonn, Sam Bush and others on the way to creating what is shaping up to be a cross-genre musical celebration of his 35+ year career.

John Cowan, universally known as "The Voice of Newgrass," has been singing his heart out for the past 35+ years. As a member of New Grass Revival, he helped create a sound which brought a new audience to the bluegrass music and was arguably as important in shaping the direction of modern bluegrass as Flatt and Scruggs was to the genre in the 1960s. After New Grass Revival disbanded in 1990, Cowan went on to record a series of critically acclaimed solo albums and to lend his unique vocals as a session musician to a lengthy discography including albums by Garth BrooksGlen CampbellSteve EarleRodney Crowell, Janis IanDelbert McClintonDarius Rucker, Kenny Rogers and Poco.

Currently, Cowan divides his time on the road between solo tours with the John Cowan Band and as a touring member of the Doobie Brothers, with whom he has been performing regularly since 2010.

John and producer/fellow Doobie John McFee will support this release with a limited number of live dates, starting with the album release event at the acclaimed Franklin Theatre in Franklin, TN on Friday night, September 12th.
