Soul Circus Cowboys is:
After years of being a local crowd-pleasing favorite, Soul Circus Cowboys are offering their flavor of bold southern rock to audiences everywhere.
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. McKnight made frequent trips to Nashville from his home in the Tampa Bay area for songwriting sessions with Paul.
Armed with new material from these sessions, McKnight brought together the best musicians Florida had to offer: bassist Michael Bach, guitar players Terry Cole and Stephen Haendiges, fiddle player Greg Holt and drummer Jason Alfano. âI love the camaraderie Iâve got working with this band,â McKnight says, "Their varied influences and years of experience create a sound and energy all their own."
The bandâs debut album, âLoveâs Like A Rodeo,â was a larger-than-life country-rock compilation that demonstrates the band's energy and dynamic range perfectly. But SCC also connects with their audience on a deeper level. âWe are a musical band with real stories,â McKnight states, "Those experiences are reflected in every lyric, from their up-tempo songs to deeply personal ballads."
Soul Circus Cowboys released their debut Single "Lay it Down", produced by Henry Paul and Dale Oliver, in the first quarter of 2012. Along with the audio release, the band has also shot their first official video produced by Chuck Jones and Keech Rainwater.
In January of 2014, SCC will release their break-out CD entitled "That's The Way We Roll". The new CD is sure to skyrocket the band to National levels and give people a glimpse into the future of this Rockin' Country Act.
In the meantime, they have a jam-packed tour schedule. McKnight and the band look forward to bringing their music to fans all over the country. âWhat Iâm most excited about is knowing SCC will bring the masses together,â says McKnight. Their electrifying performances and onstage charisma and are sure to do just that.
