Jonas Scott Cowan is a Kentucky born singer-songwriter guitarist.
A Baptist minister son, Jonas was quickly schooled on stride piano, guitar and gospel music by his father. Discovering Robert Johnson in his teen years, he found his inspiration. Jonas found a place to put his newly discovered passion, playing a role in forming 61 South, now a Western Kentucky Blues institution.
When an opportunity called in Evansville, IN, Jonas relocated and continued his immersion in blues, playing, jamming and gaining esteem throughout the region. After several career misfires and substance abuse issues, Jonas literally got lost in the wilderness. Walking Florida and Tennessee, taking menial jobs and working construction, Jonas used his travels, observations and personal reflection as inspiration for songwriting and composing.
In 2013, Jonas decided to give the blues another shot, competed in the solo division of the IBC. He made it to Memphis, didn’t place, but Beale Street was the last ingredient he needed to record his debut release “Been There” released in 2018.
Now, in 2020, Jonas has decided to get back to his roots with this all acoustic Traditional Blues set, “Parlor Tricks – Exhibit A”. The title includes “Exhibit A” to let you know there is an exhibit B set to be released at a later date.
Jonas' talent for vivid imagery in his songs, honed from years of experiencing first hand the very subject matter he writes about is what sets him apart.
