In 1988, Cowboy Junkies proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. Their now classic album, The Trinity Session, was like a whisper that cut through the noise and sold more than a million copies.
For more than 30 years, Cowboy Junkies have remained true to their unique vision, creating a critically acclaimed body of work that has endeared them to an audience unwavering in its loyalty.
With their new album, All That Reckoning, the band once again gently shakes the listener to wake up. Whether commenting on the fragile state of the world or on personal relationships, this new collection may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded.
“It’s a deeper and a more complete record than we’ve ever done before,” says songwriter/guitarist Michael Timmins. “These songs are about reckoning on a personal level and reckoning on a political level.”
