Our next CMA Fest Artist Spotlight is the Soul Circus Cowboys. I am excited to introduce these fine musicians to you. Below is a quick introduction to them taken from their website bio.
“Soul Circus Cowboys are four extremely talented individuals, Billy McKnight; vocals, band leader and songwriter, Jason Alfano; drummer, Michael Bach; bass, vocals and Rick Morgan on guitar. These guys are as authentic as genuine leather and twice as tough. Collectively Soul Circus Cowboys have seen more road and traveled more country than the chrome bumper on a freight haulin’ eighteen wheeler… All this ‘livin’ has honed their talents to “craft” this incredible band that can more than deliver on record and in concert.
See these guys perform live if you have to “sell the farm,” but be prepared, Soul Circus Cowboys are ridin’ at you hard with all four barrels and instruments blazin’…
Meet the band…
Lead singer and songwriter Billy McKnight is no stranger to the music industry, having had national success as an independent artist. In search of a new project, he teamed up with producer Henry Paul, best known for his roles in southern rock bands Blackhawk and The Outlaws.
A life-long music student and teacher, Jason Alfano’s passion and drive allowed him to work with some of America’s best known artists and producers. He has also written several television theme songs, performed live on national television, and has inspired scores of up-and-coming artists of tomorrow.
Country – Jazz – Metal - Top 40. During his storied 20 plus year career, Michael Bach has played them all with a variety of bands. And now, he plays bass and sings for Soul Circus Cowboys. His rock-edge style has helped the band create a sound that is unique to country music. He is also an accomplished piano and guitar player.
A skilled guitarist, Rick Morgan brings years of live performance and recording work to the stage as the newest member of Soul Circus Cowboys.”
I am so grateful these guys let me have a conversation with them backstage. They were so much fun. Please make sure you watch our video now. I am pretty sure you are going to love them as much as Center Stage Magazine does. Given the chance, they will rock your face off. I am definitely impressed and will continue to be a fan for life. ~Missy
