One More Door
Award winning Columbus singer/songwriter Rj Cowdery has been singing and writing songs since she was a teenager. This is a labor of love - from playing open mics to sharing the stage with some of todays most outstanding singers and writers. Rj has won numerous singer- songwriter awards. In 2008, Rj has been selected as a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist and New Folk winner at the Kerrville Folk Festival. In 2007 she was a Mountain Stage NewSong winner. ?Rj has been influenced by some great singer-song writers ; from Nanci Griffith, Carol King, and John Denver to Jackson Browne, Jim Croce and Neil Young...to name a few. Rj writes about what she sees in life. Her songs are simple and direct. The subject matter is personal and close to heart. She gives the listener a chance to get to know her as if privy to a secret that she is letting you in on. In 1995, Cowdery recorded 'Bernie's Daughter' and developed a strong regional following. She also contributed a cut to the "ripe!" compilation made up of singer/songwriters from the Columbus, Ohio area. After a career in health care Rj has returned to music with her latest effort, 'One More Door", released in February, 2008. 'One More Door' was recorded live in Parkersburg, West Virginia with Michael Lipton and Ammed Solomon from Public Radio International's Mountain Stage Band and Don Dixon, singer, songwriter, musician and legendary producer of REM and Marshall Crenshaw. West Virginia singer-songwriter icon Todd Burge produced the album. For more information call GoosePie Music at 614.208.3792 or go to rjcowdery.com. ?
