For more than 30 years, Cowboy Junkies have combined folk, blues and rock with the quiet intensity that is their musical signature on more than two dozen critically acclaimed albums, including their 1988 breakthrough The Trinity Sessions. Their most recent album, All That Reckoning, was released last year.
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 over the course of 25 albums. With Cowboy Junkies’ latest album, All That Reckoning, the band once again gently shakes the listener to wake up. Whether commenting on the fragile state of the world or on personal relationships, this new collection of songs encourages the listener to take notice. It also may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded.
