More About

Toronto's Cowboy Junkies prove that Canadian country and blues can be just as achy breaky as the American varietal. Instead of insistent honky-tonk or cowboy influences, though, Cowboy Junkies rely on the more languid, ethereal end of the spectrum. At the heart of the group are three Timmins siblings — Michael, Peter, and lead singer Margo — and it was covers like their rendition of the Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane" that got them radio play. Reaching peak popularity in the '90s, the Junkies continued to release albums well into the late 2000s. Expect bristly, alt-country melodies with Margo's ghostly alto floating above.
