Iron Cowboy

iron cowboy-300x435When SMG Records Nashville recording artist Iron Cowboy was once described as “a cleverly disguised rock band with a steel guitar”, founder and front man “Big John” Davis smiled and replied “We’ll take that!” That observation from WDNB’s Paul Ciliberto could not have been more accurate. Iron Cowboy’s sound is just that: guitars, bass, drums and pedal steel. Simple. Straightforward. Honest.

From their old school country ballad “Too Soon”, to the bouncy honky-tonk dance number “I’m Just a Truck”, or the rock guitar-edged “Don’t Back Down”, it’s unmistakably Iron Cowboy. The band provides a solid back track for the harmonies created by Big John’s raspy baritone and Cathy Paty’s soaring soprano vocals.

With their roots in Northeast Pennsylvania’s coal country, the members of Iron Cowboy understand the value of hard work and dedication. What began as a cover band in 2008 has evolved to become a working Nashville recording artist with two studio CDs and seven MusicRow chart singles to their credit, building a loyal fan base along the way.

“Seven Bridges Road” has been a long time favorite of the band. When Cathy & Big John started to sing it together, they knew that they had to record it. “It’s a song that’s been recorded by so many artists, and we wanted to put our mark on it as well” said Cathy.

John added “We listened to pretty much everything that was out there, and took ideas from this one and that one, and eventually found our own take on a classic. We’re pretty proud of it!”

Along with Cathy and Big John, Iron Cowboy includes Fran Czuba and Joe Michaels on guitar, Myke Halchak on drums, Bob Bartoli on pedal steel, and Rick LeSoine on Bass. The band is currently working on their third studio CD and touring throughout the Northeast.
