Irish songwriter and guitarist Ewan Cowley releases his debut solo EP ‘The Elevated Life’ with a launch gig this December at Whelan’s, Dublin. Sun Dec 4th 9:00pm Whelan’s, Wexford St, Dublin

Marrying a Knopfler-esque melodic touch with a lyrical ability and guitar talent akin to James Taylor and Paul Brady, Irish songwriter and guitarist Ewan Cowley takes his first step into the solo artist’s spotlight presenting The Elevated Life, his debut solo EP.

Comprising new songs and instrumentals, the collection showcases a maturity of lyric-writing and music-making informed by Cowley’s illustrious career to date as a diversely talented and in-demand session musician with a background in Irish traditional and classical music.

As a multi instrumentalist and producer he guided top Irish band The High Kings through their first years of success. He has collaborated with Eddi Reader, Brian Kennedy, Dónal Lunny, Moya Brennan, Camille O’Sullivan and many more, including Lisa Lambe, who appears as guest vocalist on this EP in the radio hit “The Thorns From Your Heart”.

Ewan’s songwriting style was further sharpened by a five year stint in London’s indie rock scene of the early 2000s with the band The Bexleys and later as a busy touring musician in the US.

The EP The Elevated Life is available via Bandcamp and iTunes from Dec 4th, 2016.
