Cowpuncher – a born and raised Calgary band specializing in sweaty, punchy rock n’ roll – is gearing up for the release of their fourth album, Hustle. Working with Toronto based producer Derek Downham (Serena Ryder, Jim Cuddy, Sam Roberts) Cowpuncher has energized their roots infused rock ‘n’ roll with driving beats and pulsing bass lines to bring their audiences the high-energy rock experience they’ve come to expect.
Playing over 60 shows in five provinces in 2014 alone, these veteran performers have [un]graced the stages at Sled Island in Calgary, Canada Music Week in Toronto, and Dauphin Country Fest in Dauphin, MB. They were also selected alongside 10 Calgary artists to represent the city’s talent at SoundOff, an event where music industry delegates from across North America were flown in to attend live performances and network with the bands. Cowpuncher’s intense, high energy live show will leave your fist pumping and your ears ringing with their raw, anthemic – yet heartfelt songs.
“Both enthusiastically engaging and dangerously dynamic, Cowpuncher ended the night with tons of dancing, foot stomping and smiles all around.”

“Cowpuncher has garnered a reputation for sweaty, uninhibited live shows, impressing tried-and-true rockers, folkies, and metalheads alike.”
