Hailing from Canada, Cowboy Junkies have earned both critical acclaim and legions of fans with their alternative country/blues/folk rock since they first hit the music scene in the mid-‘80s.
Rolling Stone placed their first widespread release, 1988’s cult classic “The Trinity Session,” among “the great tradition of albums that establish a mood and sustain it so consistently that the record seems like one continuously unfolding song.”
No easy feat considering they recorded tracks like “Misguided Angel” and their exquisite cover of “Sweet Jane” inside Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity in the span of one night using only one microphone.
The Cowboy Junkies have remained true to their unique artistic vision and to the introspective, quiet intensity that is their musical signature, creating a critically acclaimed body of original work that has endeared them to an audience unwavering in its loyalty.
