He hails from Evansville, IN, lives now in Nashville, TN, and is practically a native of Louisville, KY. As so many of his bluegrass fans can attest, true innovators like JOHN COWAN break boundaries and personify innovation. Cowan’s ability to take audiences on a musical journey through multiple genres has made him one of the most unique vocal artists of his generation. Cowan rose to fame as the bassist and soulful lead singer for New Grass Revival. Soon dubbed 'the Voice,' he and band mates Sam Bush, Bela Fleck and Pat Flynn introduced a new generation of music fans to an explosive, experimental brand of bluegrass when 'newgrass' was born. However, after inspiring and entertaining a generation of fans for nearly two decades, New Grass Revival disbanded in 1990.
