Album Notes
On Cowboy Dreams Banjo Bones retains the dark thematic content that has endeared him with his underground following. Cowboy Dreams aims at being the soundtrack of the treacherous and mysterious desert, as evidenced by the songs Colt .45, The Rodeo Clown, Chasing Shadows and Your Medicine is Bad. But it also includes introspective lyrics combined with contagious melodies, as the title track Cowboy Dreams portrays as well as the closer The Confession, which also includes an unexpected orchestral introduction, emphasizing Bones’ willingness to go anywhere in support of his sonic vision. Critics have suggested that Banjo Bones is doing for Americana music what Outlaw Country did for Country music in the 1970’s, by giving it a gritty authenticity that had been lost to cowboy-hat-wearing pop stars in recent memory.

The album was again produced by JL Espada for Boneyard Records, and credits several reputable musicians such as violin virtuoso Giorgi Khokhobashvili (all violin parts), Ron Smit on bass (Tell Him Why, Cowboy Dreams, Your Medicine is Bad, Plight of the Common Man), John Lowrey on harmonica (His Colt 45) and Darren Finger on lead guitar (The Rodeo Clown). All other instruments by Banjo Bones. Cowboy Dreams was recorded, mixed and mastered at Boneyard Records studios by JL Espada. The album cover art was used by permission from Carl Hantman.
