Longtime Music Industry Veteran Lance Cowan Focuses Attention On Songwriting With Debut Release, So Far So Good 


    NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – For the past 30 years, Lance Cowan has worked behind the scenes with some of the country’s finest songwriters, including Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock, Michael Martin Murphey, Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark and many more.

  Along the way, he has quietly honed his own songwriting skills, learning from those artists and influences Jackson Browne, Mark Heard and John Prine to name a few. 

    His first collection of songs, So Far So Good - set for worldwide release on February 23 via Lantzapalooza Müzik (CPI/The Orchard) - is already drawing praise. The first single, “This Heart of Mine” will be released January 19th.  

   “Lance Cowan's songs are populated with compelling characters and fetching melodies,” wrote Associate Press Critic Steve Wine. “His warm tenor makes the stories ring true as he sings about junk, the beauty of freedom, the tug of home and the road, and synthetics in waltz time. He has a terrific train song too.”

     Like so many, Cowan came to Nashville planning to make a living in the music business.  His foot in the door at a leading music pr firm, Network Ink, led to work with the likes of New Grass Revival (Sam Bush, Pat Flynn, John Cowan & Bela Fleck), Charlie Daniels, Nanci Griffith, Reba McEntire and many more. It wasn’t long before he moved to powerhouse Vector Management, which represented Griffith, New Grass Revival, Steve Wariner, Ely, Lyle Lovett and more. As an independent publicist, he has worked with artists as diverse as Ely, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Bobby Charles, Murphey, Drew Holcomb and many more.  

    As a songwriter, his works have been covered by the likes of Joan Baez, Janis Ian and David Mallett, to name a few. 

   For So Far So Good, Cowan assembled some of the finest musicians in the world, including Dan Dugmore (Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor), Sam Bush, Pat Flynn (New Grass Revival), Dave Pomeroy (Don Williams), Andrea Zonn (James Taylor), Keith Sewell (The Chicks), Robert Reynolds (The Mavericks), among others.
