Cowboy Junkies are an alternative country and folk rock band. 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 26 albums. Unlike most long-lasting groups, Cowboy Junkies have never had a breakup 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. Cowboy Junkies will release Such Ferocious Beauty on June 2, 2023 via Cooking Vinyl. This is the band’s first release of new material in five years. Such Ferocious Beauty is vintage Cowboy Junkies and another dimension from the lo- fi Canadian band.
