Cowboy Mouth
Cowboy Mouth
For over two decades, Cowboy Mouth has dished up its unique style of rock & roll gumbo, mixing a rowdy spirit reflective of the band's hometown -- New Orleans -- with the fierce firepower of a group that lives on the road. These Louisiana natives have played more than 2,500 concerts and launched their signature song, "Jenny Says,” into the upper half of the Billboard rock charts. Above all else, they earned a well-deserved rep as a raucous, redemptive, live music experience.

Formed during the glory days of grunge music, Cowboy Mouth forged a different sound from the very start. It’s a sound rooted in rock, punk, blues, and the attitude of the Big Easy, a town known for its week-long parties and swampy, southern vibe. Bandleader Fred LeBlanc, who'd previously sharpened his teeth with the punk band Dash Rip Rock, pulls double-duty as the group's frontman and drummer, leading the charge with his larger-than-life personality and percussive attack. During the band’s early days, record companies warned him against singing and drumming at the same time, claiming that audiences would never go for it... but by the mid-'90s, those same record companies were clamoring to sign the band to a major-label deal.

In other words, in a decade filled with angsty alt-rock, Cowboy Mouth stood out for all the right reasons.

The band released its original music with MCA Records, then Atlantic Records. Once the 2000s kicked into gear, the band released music on its own label, cutting out the middleman and focusing on the biggest thing that's kept Cowboy Mouth afloat since 1990: the audience.

"Cowboy Mouth isn't so much about the people onstage as it is about the feeling in the crowd," says LeBlanc.

The people onstage certainly help, though. Since the band’s inception, LeBlanc has shared that stage with guitarist John Thomas Griffith. Now backed by bandmates Matt Jones on guitar and Brian Broussard on bass, LeBlanc and Griffith have led Cowboy Mouth on a wild, critically-acclaimed ride, selling more than 500,000 albums domestically, playing shows with artists like Bo Diddley (whose bluesy, beat-driven music has always been a big influence on Cowboy Mouth's own sound), and performing in front of more than 9 million fans.

Go!, the band's newest album, is proof that Cowboy Mouth hasn't lost its bite. It's the most collaborative album of the group's career, performed with ferocity by a group of rock & roll veterans who've been there, done that... and can't wait to do it all again. "I'm just a little older, but I ain't dead yet!" LeBlanc sings during the very first song, kicking off a record that's steeped in the ageless energy of the band's live shows.

Cowboy Mouth’s music lives in concert with its loyal fans! Fred’s raw and engaging performance style has played ring leader to the audience for decades.

"Our shows are celebratory, life-affirming experiences," LeBlanc says proudly. "With every show, no matter where it is, we try to turn it into New Orleans during the middle of Mardi Gras. It's an unique live concert experience. It's like a southern gospel revival without the religion."

Over the years, an estimated 9 million people would agree. We hope to see you all out on the road!
Southern Heartburn
Southern Heartburn
SOUTHERN HEARTBURN'S music is first and foremost steeped in the Deep SOUTHERN Blues styles of the early 20th century. Ed's songwriting mixes this love of blues and roots music with a modern electric, dynamic, powerful, RAW, soulful sound.

If you haven't lost, you haven't lived... All the Love, the Pain, the Joy, and Loss IS the music, and the music is a reflection of life. The HEART revels in the joy's of life's fleeting moments, and yet it can BURN with a sadness over pain and loss seemingly too much to bear.

“If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane.” Robert Frost

So WE laugh in the face of despair. We ride on sarcastic wings and strive to create music with a vibrancy that transcends sadness into joy.

CREATING A SOUND THAT SEAMLESSLY BLENDS GENRES AND TOUCHES THE SOUL IS NO SMALL TASK, BUT LVVRS MAKE IT LOOK EASY. WITH EACH OF THEIR SONGS COMBINING ELEMENTS OF MODERN POP, ALTERNATIVE ROCK, AND WORLD BEATS, LVVRS HAVE DEVELOPED AN INFECTIOUS SOUND YOU’LL KEEP ON REPEAT.
RISEN FROM THE ASHES OF TWO OF THE GULF COAST'S PREMIER ROCK BANDS OF THE EARLY 2010’S, VETERAN ROCK’N’ROLLERS RIVER GIBSON, ZAC LYONS AND BRENON WILSON WANTED TO TAKE A FULLY FRESH APPROACH TO CONTEMPORARY SONGWRITING. THEY FORMED LVVRS IN EARLY 2018, DRAWING INSPIRATION FOR THEIR NEW MUSIC FROM PAST ROCK INFLUENCES AND TODAY’S TOP 40 POP AND R&B ARTISTS. THEY WANTED TO CHANGE THE GAME BY INFUSING ESTABLISHED ROCK SOUNDS OF ELECTRIC AND ACOUSTIC GUITAR AND DRUMS WITH FUN POP SYNTHS AND RHYTHMIC BEATS.
THEIR DEBUT EP IS SET FOR RELEASE IN THE FALL OF 2018, AND TRACKS LIKE “WILD HEART,” A ROCK BALLAD DISGUISED AS A DANCE SONG WITH A DRIVING POP BEAT, ARE PRACTICALLY BURSTING WITH ENERGETIC UNDERTONES. “OVER YOU” RESONATES AS A DISTINCTIVE EMOTIONAL JOURNEY, BRINGING IN ENTIRELY NEW ELEMENTS OF WORLD DRUMS AND TROPICAL SYNTHS. UPBEAT “ICONIC” IS A WELCOMED BREATH OF FRESH AIR AND NOSTALGIC 80’S GUITAR TONES THAT WILL LITERALLY BE THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR NEXT HOUSE PARTY. ADDING TO THE MIX, THERE’S A MYSTERIOUS VULNERABILITY IN RIVER’S WARM AND ROBUST VOCAL DELIVERY. HIS ADDICTIVE MELODIES AND POWERFULLY LUSCIOUS HARMONIES CONVEY HONEST, EMOTIONAL LYRICS THAT DANCE ON SOME MIDDLE GROUND BETWEEN HAPPY AND SAD. THERE’S A VISCERAL SINCERITY IN EVERY AMBITIOUS SING-A-LONG ABOUT LOVE, LOSS, BEING MISUNDERSTOOD, OR SIMPLY BEING THE LIFE OF THE PARTY.
LVVRS ENCOMPASS A NEW ERA FOR ROCK’N’ROLL, TAKING THE GENRE TO UNPRECEDENTED HEIGHTS WHILE PUSHING THE SONIC BOUNDARIES OF A MODERN POP SONG. LVVRS AREN’T YOUR DAD’S ROCK’N’ROLL BAND. THEY’RE ROCK STARS FOR THE NEW GENERATION.
