Davy Cowan - Life's Just Fine
“Life’s Just Fine” has been 4 years in the making. It comprises of 10 self penned tracks & 1 cover (Bob Marley’s Redemption Songs) The music is poignant and reflective, with subject matter ranging from Love, loss & loneliness, homelessness & displacement, with tales of a haunted Highland Hotel and an old piano convalescing in an old Village Hall. The songs are about everyday people and their situations. It touches on life’s trials & tribulations with more than a sprinkling of hope & belief in the Human Spirit thrown in for good measure and given our current Pandemic and the lockdown it will hit home with a lot of people.

You gotta hear this guy! He’ll feel like your long lost friend, you will feel like you know him, because Davy Cowan is authentic through and through! Wonderful artist, check him out! (Martin Stephenson, The Daintees)
– Davy showcased his unique voice that can only be described as a strange mix of Highland grit and Americana twang... he keeps his audience tuned in with short tales before moving on..... . Davy’s overall song-writing style is very straight forward and does not clutter it up unnecessary with flashy lyrics to show off his songs. What you get here is an honest man singing honest songs and the crowd reacting to it…honestly... (Celtic Music Radio)
