Http://www.soulcircuscowboys.com - 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: lead guitarist Johnny Chromatic, bassist Jason Gaines, and drummer Jason Alfano. “I love the camaraderie I’ve got working with this band,” McKnight says, "Their varied influences and years of experience create a sound and energy all their own."
The band’s debut album, “Love’s Like A Rodeo,” is 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. “We are a musical band with real stories,” McKnight states, "Those experiences are reflected in every lyric, from their up-tempo songs to deeply personal ballads."
Soul Circus Cowboys will be releasing 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 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. “What I’m most excited about is knowing SCC will bring the masses together,” says McKnight. Their electrifying performances and onstage charisma and are sure to do just that.
