The Cocabanana Band LIVE!

John Burrows, who lives in Eden,Utah, and is one of the founders of the Country Rock genre of music.

He is an award-winning singer, and, multi instrumentalist. Six and 12 string Guitars, banjo, dobro, pedal steel guitar,

“Straight ahead, 3 chord country songs were losing their grip on the younger generation. So we decided to try something a little different. We blended more contemporary lyrics with a more pronounced back beat... that was sometimes…... even danceable.”

The new CD, “Eagle in the Air“ was many years in the planning.

The songs on the CD reflect and echo his life experiences, in the mountains (where he climbs in winter) and on the ocean.(he captained a 52 foot sailboat).

“I am a tolerably close observer of people in these two environments.....they seem to create more freedom and bring out the best in people.”
John’s previous two CDs were critically acclaimed and had sold out just recently. He wanted to continue to share those songs with his audience so he added eight of them to the “Eagle in the Air” project.

“The folks in Ogden Valley have had a profound effect on me emotionally and I’ve tried to capture the many attributes of this idyllic place in my writing.”

His song “Wasatch Wild Child” echos John’s nickname for the valley as the “Valley of the Horses“ . It refers by name to such familiar places as Eden, Huntsville, James Peak and Mount Ben Lomond.
The title cut “Eagle in the Air”
is about life in our high mountain valley with vivid, crisp, imagery: “North winds stalk our valley floor, they open up our winter’s door”

“ Powder Mountain Lady“ presents an interesting dichotomy.
“I wrote this about a physical place, not only a person although it works that way too. I consider mountains to be feminine as they can be so beautiful and also so challenging.
So,....it’s easy to say loving things about them.
The song also answers the question often asked of High Mountain Valley residents, “Why do you live there?”

John is an accomplished pedal steel, dobro and banjo player in addition to his outstanding acoustic work on both six string and 12 string guitars.
