Cowboy Junkies announce Ontario Tour

Canadian Music Hall Of Fame Inductees COWBOY JUNKIES Announces Ontario Tour

Sometimes revolutions begin quietly.

In 1988, Cowboy Junkies proved that an audience awaited something quiet, beautiful, and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise — and it was compelling. It stood out in the midst of the flash and bombast that came to define the late 80s. The now classic recording combined folk, blues, and rock in a way that had never been heard before and went on to sell more than a million copies.

Cowboy Junkies will release Such Ferocious Beauty on June 2, 2023, via Latent Recordings. This is the band’s first release of new material in five years and follows their heralded 2022 collection of covers, Songs of the Recollection.  Such Ferocious Beauty is vintage Cowboy Junkies and another dimension from the lo-fi Canadian band comprised of siblings Margo, Michael, Peter Timmins, and lifelong friend Alan Anton. Such Ferocious Beauty is a rumination on aging, losing parents, facing mortality, and creating space for one’s life amid the ruin of merely living.

Formed in Toronto in 1985 with siblings Michael Timmins on guitar, Margo Timmins on vocals, Peter Timmins on drums, and Michael’s lifelong friend Alan Anton on bass, the band has sparkled throughout 26 albums.

I’ve known Alan longer than I’ve known Pete,” says Michael. “We were friends before Pete was born.

Unlike most long-lasting groups, Cowboy Junkies have never had a break-up or taken a sanity-saving hiatus. There’s an appreciation of each other that keeps them constantly working.

“It’s that intimacy and understanding of what each one of us brings to the table,” says Michael.
