Plywood Cowboy

“Formed in 2015 in the Connecticut River Valley, Plywood Cowboy is poised to rewrite the American Songbook. "With great harmonies, clever songs & tasty guitar pickin', Plywood Cowboy is one of the best new bands on the Americana scene." (Chris Bergson, NY Blues Hall of Fame Inductee)  Their heart-born songs interweave the rich heritage of earthen, country roots and the poignancy of singer-songwriter traditions.  Bottle-fed on roots music, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Steve Dedman and his band strike deep at the soul of American music with songs about hound dogs, heart strings, and the vice of the bottle.

Plywood Cowboy’s newest digital single, Stray, was recorded at Riverway Studio in East Haddam, CT with producer and Grammy-nominated composer Ira Sakolsky. This September 2017 single release marks the band's first release since their 2016 debut EP "Channel 33".  Stray tells the story of a love that was led astray and the guilt and forgiveness that ensues.  The haunting violin, ethereal male-female harmonies, and delicate, soulful guitars lend a contemplative tone to the tale of regret and redemption. The character-driven song is in keeping with “Channel 33” which paints a story with each song in the EP. “Channel 33” has been called "a gorgeously assured collection of songs” (The Shoreline Times), “a seriously hooky debut EP” (The Day), and “steeped in tradition, with lyrics full of longing, truth and heart” (Sound Waves Magazine).

The band’s lineup features Steve Dedman (keyboard, guitar, lead vocals), Austin Gray (guitar, vocals), Kat Wallace (violin, vocals), Shane Tanner (bass), Emmet Hale (percussion), and Ed Iarusso (pedal steel). Cowboys of the airwaves, no one in the band owns any cows. Not as of yet, at least. Steve learned to play guitar from his father, David, and family friend John Hanus, who would pick guitars and sing their favorite country songs over their CB radios, and take the time on Sundays to teach Steve how to pick in country-western style. From Kris Kristopherson to Lefty Frizzell, John and David taught a young Steve true American music. Few knew John by his real name, but many knew him by his CB handle, "Plywood Cowboy”, a reference to his day job hauling lumber around the northeast. Though both CB'ers have left the airwaves, it is through the band's music that their influences will forever be heard. “
