Davy Cowan as his website declares is a “Singer, Songwriter, Guitar Slinger, Troubadour, Song & Dance Man” who is very much part of the history of the local music scene, his first band The Yobs having been formed when he was in school. .It’s fair to say that his music has evolved over time, although some of the influences are still very pertinent to his music.

The new album, which is the follow up to 2011 release ‘The Journey’ , is produced by Martin Stephenson from The Daintees. The album promises to have “ hints of 1977 New wave/ post punk tinged with Country, Folk/ Roots, there’s plenty of light & shade. Sometimes quite mellow & plaintive, sometimes more edgy & rugged.  Like, The Cars meets The Clash with a twist of Scott Walker meets Cash… “.

It seems appropriate for Davy to be launching the album at Belladrum given that he has been a regular performer at the festival for many years.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
