OTHER SIDE OF LOVE
“ Rj plays a clean guitar, flat picking or strumming and stringing chords together to build melodies built like a proverbial brick house and pours over it all with a voice like butter. Her lyrics are sincere and plainspoken, as one might expect from someone who grew up in small town Ohio. ”
— Vancouver Island Music Festival
Rj Cowdery has solidified her place in the world of performing singer-songwriters, garnering accolades at Mountain Stage NewSong, Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, Rocky Mountain Folk Festival, and Sisters Folk Festival. She plays a clean guitar, flat picking or strumming, stringing chords together to develop melodies built like a proverbial brick house and pours over it all with a voice like butter. Her lyrics are sincere and plainspoken, inviting you to lean in hard and come out the other side changed.
"Rj Cowdery is one of the most compelling writers i've run across so far this century...though her songs bear her unmistakable stamp, they are so well concieved that you could swear you've heard them before, sung by a folk legend in Kerrville or at a writer's circle at The Bluebird..."-Don Dixon
"Among this year's very talented pool of finalists in the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, RJ truly differentiated herself with well-crafted songs, a natural yet confident stage presence, and a beautiful voice that perfectly complements her guitar playing. I'm a big fan, and look forward to watching her career unfold."
-Gar Ragland, music producer and NewSong Director
