X-Rated Cowboys

BandRockAmericana

Maybe Bill Holmes (Cosmik Debris) said it best when including the band on his Village Voice Pazz & Jop poll ballot: "The X-Rated Cowboys might be the best purveyor of Americana music you haven't heard of yet... A rock-solid combination of barroom ballad, twang pop and rock and roll.

Biography

Playing together for more than five years, The X-Rated Cowboys have won over fans across Ohio and (thanks to the Internet) the world with their blend of pop, rock, and a hint of twang. Drawing equally from the spirit of Bruce Springsteen and The Replacements, the band mixes the voice and songwriting of Quinn Fallon with the musical expertise of many of the city's most in-demand players.

Whether it is opening for national acts like Tenacious D and Dave Pirner to drawing more than 1,000 fans on their own for a record-release show, The X-Rated Cowboys have proved a popular live show, equal to the critical praise their albums have received from magazines, radio programmers, and Web scribes across the globe.
