Canada's rockabilly heroes Cousin Harley are back with their fifth release, The Dutch Sessions, recorded direct-to-tape in the village of Schipluiden in The Netherlands, over the course of three rainy days off on their 2013 European tour. Paul Pigat, Keith Picot, and Jesse Cahill take us on a rollicking romp through the repertoire from their live show, paying homage to many of the great artists who have inspired them over the years. It's stripped down, primitive and bristling with the energy and attitude for which this trio is famous. Gritty baritones, twanging guitars, slapping bass and kicking drums abound!
The Dutch Sessions is available worldwide physically and digitally from numerous online partners, iTunes, and CD Baby. And you can always pick one up at a Cousin Harley show or your local record store.!
Cousin Harley’s newest CD is out now! Cousin Harley's first all-instrumental recording! "B'Hiki Bop" features twelve original tracks (and one smokin' cover) bringing classic western swing, hotrod country, surf, psychobilly, lounge, and westcoast jump blues all together. The CD is musically and sonically diverse, bristling with breaks that give each member of this powerhouse trio a chance to shine.
Cousin Harley’s latest CD is out now! "It's a Sin" is the band's strongest album to date. Paul and the boys burn through 13 tracks of smokin' rockabilly, jump blues, Western Swing and vintage rock 'n roll.
Watch Cousin Harley perform the title track - "It's a Sin"
Paul Pigat’s latest CD is a collection of songs about love, heartbreak, and redemption; mostly self-penned tunes along with a handful of creatively arranged covers. At one end of the scale are light hearted ditties, and on the other, dark fantasies of the mind. Although laced with tasteful musicianship, this recording is a departure in the sense that the songs rather than the playing are the main feature.
Featured players on the recording include: Paul Pigat – vocals, guitar, dobro, and banjo; Paul Rigby (Neko Case) – mandolin; Tommy Babin (François Houle) - acoustic bass and Barry Mirochnick (Neko Case) – drums. Currently available through Red Cat Records, and (with audio samples) at cdbaby.com!
Cousin Harley's latest full-length release, 'Hillbilly Madness' is 15 tracks of blistering rockabilly, western swing, and straight up rock 'n roll. Available currently through Vancouver's Red Cat Records. and now (with audio samples) through iTunes!
