Kevin Cahoon And Ghetto Cowboy deliver explosive rock infused with glitter on their debut record, DOLL. The album features 8 original gritty rock songs written and performed by Cahoon backed by guitar, drums, bass and keys. The band is one of the most buzzed about new arrivals on New York’s downtown music scene; the pop, power and glam theatricality of their live events are captured for the first time on CD with this new studio recording.
The album ranges from the poppy tongue-in-cheek “Fashionista” and “Bitch” to the angry outcast anthem, “Doll.” Proclaiming “I am the freak/I am the f*g/I am the weirdo one you couldn’t stand/I am the geek/I am the nerd/you beat me up when I was ten,” this title track is ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ taken to the next level. Other songs include “Star Ballad”, which is reminiscent of The Smashing Pumpkins, lighters-in-the-air “Mirrorball Prophecy”, and an inventive punk rendition of the classic “Could I Have This Dance” first made famous by Anne Murray.
The album is being released through Sh-K-Boom Records, a Razor & Tie/Sony BMG distributed label, known to “bridge the gap between pop music and theater.” With a sound unique to what one might expect from a Broadway actor, Kevin Cahoon is quickly building a fan base in the indie music world, due to his live shows and abundance of press. Kevin Cahoon and his band Ghetto Cowboy have been heralded by New York Times, Time Out New York, and The Advocate, among others.
Kevin’s pistol power performances and raw theatrics on the rock n’ roll stage stem from his successful career on Broadway. Kevin has built up a large and loyal following due to the edgy/alternative roles he has played, including The Childcatcher in 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang', Ed the Hyena in 'The Lion King' and Hedwig in 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch'. In fact, it was during Kevin's tour with Hedwig that he was inspired to realize his long-held ambition to front his own band.
In the original musical based on the New Line Cinema hit film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, Kevin plays the scene-stealing Boy George-obsessed bandmate of Robbie Hart, New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer and the show’s title character. 'The Wedding Singer' opens at Broadway’s Al Hirschfeld Theatre on April 27th.
Kevin will be featured on the original cast recording of 'The Wedding Singer', to be released through Masterworks Broadway on June 6th. More information about 'The Wedding Singer' can be found at http://www.theweddingingerthemusical.com.
