A whisper that resonates
Often described as haunting, alluring and dreamy, Cowboy Junkies have long since secured their place in the annals of Canadian rock history with their lauded 1988 release, The Trinity Session. A legend unto itself, after the success of that unforgettable album, the Junkies gracefully built an impressive discography in the over 25 years they've spent recording and playing together.
As vital as ever, their latest effort, The Wilderness, is a sweeping, poignant and gently disarming alt-rock album that shares that same sweet sense of melody and the same haunting voice that made The Trinity Session so remarkable. Extraordinary then, extraordinary now.
