Cowboy Junkies were formed in Toronto in 1985 after guitarist and songwriter Michael Timmins and long-time friend and musical partner, bassist Alan Anton, recruited Michael’s sister, singer Margo Timmins and brother, drummer Peter Timmins to join them. For more than 20 years, Cowboy Junkies have remained true to their unique artistic vision and to the introspective, quiet intensity that is their musical signature, creating a critically acclaimed body of original work that has endeared them to an audience unwavering in its loyalty. Their music chronicles a creative journey reflecting the independent road the band has elected to travel. Cowboy Junkies have appeared on countless major television shows in North America from Saturday Night Live to Late Night with David Letterman and The Tonight Show. Their music has been featured in dozens of television programs and feature films.
