COWBOY JUNKIES – Sing In My Meadow

Formed in 1985 “Sing In My Meadow“ is the 15th studio album from
Canada’s Cowboy Junkies, and the third in the four part Nomad Series.
The band is made up of three siblings- vocalist Margo Timmins (vocals)
and her two brothers guitarist Michael and drummer Peter- the line up
completed by bass player Alan Anton, and as often is with a band like
this the musical chemistry appears to be that bit stronger.

Still gaining critical acclaim over 25 years into their career, the
Cowboy Junkies are still making albums as good as their 1988
breakthrough album “The Trinity Sessions”. The idea behind this new
album was to recreate the band’s live performances and with guitarist
Michael Timmins producing the record they have managed to do just that.
All eight tracks on “Sing In My Meadow” were recorded live in the studio
over a four day session and that energy can be felt throughout the

Opening track “Continental Drift” has a soundtrack quality to it,
“It’s Heavy Down Here” is musically sparse with trippy vocals riding
over it, whilst “I Move On” has a swirling psychedelic feel to it. Title
track “Sing In My Meadow” is dirty, bluesy and earthy sounding, “3rd
Crusade” almost has a late 1960’s Hendrix like touch to it. Other
highlights include “Hunted” and “A Bride’s Price”.

The band will complete The Nomad Series with the release of next
album “The Wilderness” and show no sign of resting on their laurels.
