Album Notes
The Brooklyn Cowboys unite elements of the best country- rock of the 1960's with todays alt-country and americana sounds. The band is centered around the songs of band members Walter Egan and Fredro Perry. Steeped in influences by Hank Williams and Gram Parsons, The Brooklyn Cowboys made a left turn through Rockpile and The Rolling Stones and wound up here, "Doin' Time On Planet Earth". The band creates music that is somehow both familiar and refreshingly new, featuring melodic songs with cutting lyrics and a hard rockin' beat!

With the release of their new CD "Doin' Time on Planet Earth", The Brooklyn Cowboys pick up the torch that Gram Parsons lit over 30 years ago. The band was born in 1996 when singer, writer and guitarist Walter Egan met writer and drummer Fredro Perry in that hotbed of roots and alt-country known as Brooklyn, New York. Egan (best known for his five solo albums, his mega-smash hit Magnet and Steel, and his song "Hearts on Fire", recorded by Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris), was engaged by Perry to help him record some of his award-winning songs. The sessions went so well that they began rehearsing to prepare material for public display. Soon the Brooklyn Cowboys were making waves on the country rock circuit throughout the Northeast, with their newest member Buddy Cage, legendary pedal steel player from The New Riders of the Purple Sage. Their rise was short-circuited in the summer of '97 when Egan departed for Nashville, Tennessee. But the sounds were too strong to be kept down! The Brooklyn Cowboys reformed in Music City with an expanded lineup of all-stars. On bass guitar: Supe Granda of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils; on acoustic rhythm guitar and vocals: Americana sweetheart, Joy Lynn White; on keyboards: session ace Michael Webb, doing what he's done so well for the likes of Stacey Earle, Pinmonkey, Allison Moorer, B.J. Thomas, and his own group, Fugitive Glue. The Cowboys were joined in the studio (incidentally the same one Roy Orbison used to record in) by the consummate fiddle player Vassar Clements; hot picker from Merle Haggard, Redd Volkaert; and the stunning young vocalist from the 5 Bucks, Brian Waldschlager. On top of all this, revered picker Al Perkins (Burrito Bros., Gram Parsons, Manassas, Rolling Stones) was brought on board to produce. As if all this firepower wasn't enough, included on their debut disc is the last song of the patron saint of alt-country, Gram Parsons. It is a co-write between Parsons and Egan dating from the days just before Gram's death, and is called Carolina Calypso. The Cowboys have already started the buzz in Nashville and will be taking their "Doin' Time Tour" on the road to your town soon. Either be there...or as the Brooklyn Cowboys say ... "Fugeddaboudit... y'all".
