RJ Cowdery was the Kerrville New Folk Winner in 2008, and also won the 2012 Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at Oregon’s prestigious Sisters Folks Festival. Known for “emotive lyrics and a voice like honey,” RJ performs across the country, from house concerts to concert halls. Her CD In This Light features special appearances by Pierce Pettis and Jonathan Byrd. “There is no possible way to listen to Rj Cowdery’s music and not feel deeply.” (Joe Crookston).
More recently, RJ released Something Fine, a CD of songs written by some of her favorite writers.
