Rj Cowdery, is a Columbus, OH-based artist who has solidified her place as a standout of the next generation of performing songwriters.
Though she wrote her first songs as a teenager, Cowdery took a circuitous path to becoming a full-time artist. She experienced exciting creative breakthroughs followed by distractions and obligations that took her away from her lifelong dream of being a professional singer/songwriter. But it has all paid off in recent years.
Cowdery’s past few years on the folk festival trail have been nothing short of extraordinary. She has received major accolades at some of the most prestigious festivals in the U.S., including Mountain Stage NewSong, Kerrville New Folk, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival (runner up) and most recently winning the The Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at Sisters Folk Festival in Oregon.
Her most recent release In This Light has been met with rave reviews from critics, fans, and her fellow artists.
“There is no possible way to listen to Rj Cowdery’s music and not feel deeply. The tone of her voice, the clarity of her guitar and spot on emotive lyrics plumb the depths of human hope and struggle. These are not just songs, they are arrows shot directly to center of the heart”. — Joe Crookston
