…a musical polymath…” Paul Herriott, RTÉ Lyric FM

“…terrific, very fine.  I’m very taken with this EP.”  Marty Whelan, RTÉ Lyric FM.

“…a wonderful guitarist…” Fiachna Ó Braonáin, RTÉ Radio One.

“…a gem of an EP, his voice has purity which recalls early Paul Brady…” Irish Music Magazine, April 2017.


Marrying a Knopfler-esque melodic touch with a lyrical ability and guitar talent akin to James Taylor and Paul Brady, Irish composer and songwriter Ewan Cowley takes his first step into the solo artist’s spotlight presenting The Elevated Life, his debut solo EP.

Comprising new songs and instrumentals, the collection showcases a maturity of lyric-writing and music-making informed by Cowley’s illustrious career to date as a diversely talented and in-demand multi-instrumentalist with a background in Irish traditional and classical music.

As a live performer and producer he guided top Irish band The High Kings through their first years of success.  He has collaborated with Dónal Lunny, Eddi Reader, Moya Brennan, Camille O’Sullivan and many more, including Lisa Lambe who appears as a guest vocalist on this EP on the 2016 RTÉ Radio playlisted single “The Thorns From Your Heart”.

Ewan’s debut solo EP The Elevated Life, produced by Ewan Cowley & Dave McCune is out now via Bandcamp and iTunes.
