Cowpuncher – a royally confident five piece Calgary band is gearing up for the release of their fourth full-length album – Hustle. Working with Toronto based producer Derek Downham (Serena Ryder, Jim Cuddy, Sam Roberts) has energized Cowpuncher’s roots-infused guitar hooks with driving beats and pulsating electric bass lines to knock the socks – and the hats – off their devotees. Cowpuncher’s intense, high energy live show will leave fists pumping and your ears ringing with raw, authentic and anthemic songs.
Touring relentlessly in western Canada, these veteran performers have [un]graced the stages of Sled Island in Calgary, Canada Music Week in Toronto, and Dauphin Country Fest in Dauphin, MB. In 2014 they won a WCMA for Album Design of the Year and in 2015 were selected as one of the top 12 bands in Alberta’s Peak Performance Project, coming home with a songwriting prize, fresh songs built though collaboration, and a reborn drive to deliver sweaty, punchy rock ‘n’ roll.
“Both enthusiastically engaging and dangerously dynamic, Cowpuncher ended the night with tons of dancing, foot stomping and smiles all around.”
– (Kayla Beattie, Beatroute show review, March 2014)
“Cowpuncher has garnered a reputation for sweaty, uninhibited live shows, impressing tried-and-true rockers, folkies, and metalheads alike.”
– (Dave Whitfield, Rocky Mountain Outlook, January 2014)
