Sandman: Montana’s Rappin’ Cowboy

post-modern country troubadour hip hop

Sandman’s music exemplifies the moment that MTV hit every t.v. in America and the kids in Oklahoma started dressing like the kids in the Bronx. This is fusion in the raw. Country hip-hop folk rap cowboy punk whatever you want to call it – Sandman’s music is political, sexy and distinctly western. He has reclaimed the word "cowboy" and given it meaning again--something beyond rodeo and Marlboros, Texas oil barons and Toby Keith.

Sandman’s childhood was spent running through the hills and valleys of the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana. He was raised on cowboy poetry, the prescribed diet bestowed upon the great grandson of original settlers to the region. As a kid he learned to rap and rhyme to the beats of barbed wire and combines. When cable television came to Montana and Hip hop culture hit "the Rez" in 1983 Sandman was hooked. By the time he got into Dylan and Marley in his late teens he had already found his own voice.

A prolific writer, Sandman has produced fifteen recordings and toured the country. He has shared bills with acts ranging from Michael Franti & Spearhead to the Microphones.

Sandman has stepped in enough cow manure to know that music isn't necessarily more worthwhile than a good night’s rest, a tall glass of water, or silence. It's just another good thing in a world full of many good things. But if you are in the mood to kick it to a spaghetti western with a different beat, you will want to take a sip of this cowboy.
