Cowboy Diplomacy

"Millennial southern gents who do modern cowboy rock right." - ATX On Record.

Meet Cowboy Diplomacy, Austin-based southern rockers who are redefining what it means to be a cowboy. With a sound that lies somewhere between rock n’ roll and southern soul, Cowboy Diplomacy has captivated its audience with their unconventional style and raw lyrics.

While frontman Ian Cochran’s unique growl-like vocals tend to draw the crowd in, it’s the energy and music that the band creates as a whole that keeps them around. Evident within their robust sound are traces of notable bands such as Rival Sons, Kaleo, Kings of Leon, and AC/DC—some of whom the band members also draw influence from.

In their few short years as a band, Cowboy Diplomacy has caught the attention of many. Within their first year of formation, the band was voted runner-up for “Best New Band” by the Austin Chronicle; in 2017 the band was named “Best Band of Austin” by Austin Monthly and was nominated to receive a grant from Black Fret. The band has also been fortunate enough to work in the studio with Grammy-nominated producer Chris Frenchie Smith.

2019 is shaping up to be a pivotal year for Cowboy Diplomacy as they prepare to release their debut album, tour, and continue to rock anywhere that there's a stage and an audience.
