Lance Cowan Triumphs with 'So Far, So Good'

Published January 16, 2024

Lance Cowan is a name you might not know unless you're deep inside the music industry where he's recognized as a top-notch publicist. However, Cowan has stepped out from behind the scenes with his latest album, So Far, So Good, proving that his musical talent is just as notable as his PR skills. Through this independent release, which scores an impressive four out of five stars, Cowan invites listeners into a world where his abilities as a singer and songwriter can no longer be overshadowed by his reputation in publicity.

A Star-Studded Collaboration

Cowan didn't embark on this musical journey alone. Joining him are celebrated musicians like mandolin maestro Sam Bush, guitarists Pat Flynn and Mark Elliott, Andrea Zonn with her skillful fiddle play, rocksteady drummer Pat McInerney, bassists Dave Pomeroy and Jay Turner, and the smooth pedal steel tunes from Dan Dugmore. These artists, in conjunction with Cowan's own experience, bring to life an array of unforgettable tracks that highlight Cowan's flair for songwriting.

Unforgettable Melodies and Personal Touch

The tunes on So Far, So Good feel timeless, as if they've always existed, ready for Cowan to pluck out of the air. His songs create intimate images of common people, reflecting life in a way that's both personal and touching. Tracks like 'Little Johnny Pierce,' 'Lost and Found,' 'Fields of Freedom,' 'Ben McGhee,' and 'The Letter', where Julie Lee's vocals shine, offer a soft glimpse into Cowan's songwriting soul. The music doesn't just tug at the heartstrings, it also radiates a joy and vitality that comes from Cowan's passion for sharing his art. Songs like the title track, 'A Place For Everything,' 'Sound of My House,' and 'For You' are all tender, joyful celebrations of melody and emotion.

'Blue Highway' strikes a chord as an anthem for Cowan's musical voyage. It symbolizes the journey he's taken and his willingness to share his musical prowess with the world—a prowess that has remained untapped until now. So Far, So Good is more than just an album title; it's a declaration of a musical arrival, marking Lance Cowan’s transition from publicist to performer.
