Unlikely Cowboy, Likable Music

If you are tired of hearing the same old songs in your CD collection; you’ve stopped going to live shows because you have been endlessly disappointed and braving the scene no longer seems worth the effort; or if your radio dial remains in the off position because you have become jaded by what is deemed popular by monopolized commercial stations, then Unlikely Cowboy is a sound for sore ears.
Lead man and maestro, Daniel Schwartz, has a dream and he is making it a reality with his thrilling original songs. The music is versatile, showcasing elements and influence from all genres. Self-categorized as “urban country,” Unlikely Cowboy incorporates the sometimes feel good, sometimes heartbreaking twang of traditional country, and adapts to appeal to audiences of all ages and demographics.
Andrew Vick joins Schwartz on the drums, providing the perfect toe tapping rhythms to accompany Schwartz’s masterful guitar progressions and lyrical melodies.
Newcomer, Alison Wadsworth, adds her angelic voice to the mix, but don’t be fooled, she has pipes that will blow your hair back.

“The Sound the Darkness Makes” begins with Alison singing soft and sweet over guitar accompaniment, but watch out, because when the band joins in, she booms with the full rock star extent of her vocal abilities. Peter Burton (Keys), Eric Hickey (Electric Guitar), and Damien Mason (Bass) complete the depth of Unlikely Cowboy’s full sound.
Daniel Schwartz continues to impress with songs like “You’re the First,” “1, 2, 3, 28,” and the call and response anthem, “Sweet Girl.” Andrew Vick leaves his drums behind for the bass for the memorable duet, “What Am I to Do?” It’s a song of complicated love that you’ll be singing in you head for days afterwards. Also, listen for a couple of outstanding covers thrown into the mix for good measure. In the song, “All the Riches,” the entire bands joins in on vocals to croon a tune to which anyone and everyone can sing along. Schwartz follows through with the life-affirming vocal line, “This is a moment for me to live by.” This is music that will reinvigorate your ears, and leave you hootin’ and hollerin’ for more.
