Introducing…Rob Cowen & The Dissidents

Rob Cowen & The Dissidents

Rob Cowen & The Dissidents create infectious, impassioned epic music that comes straight from this country's heartlands.

In late 2009, their self-released debut single "Heartache" smashed its way onto Radio 1, Xfm and 6Music, with support from Huw Stephens, Kissy Sell Out, Bethan Elfyn, and Tom Robinson.

Q magazine also voted it 'Track of the Day' - "Like The Boss circa Born To Run, pounding and big guitars layered underneath big choruses, bigger harmonies and a well-placed glockenspiel on this heartfelt track of stadium-sized, singalong-friendly and intoxicatingly engaging anthems" - Heartache Q's Track Of The Day

Just as folk music has always been used to spread news through song, Rob Cowen & The Dissidents write anthemic tunes that hold a mirror to the world with heartbreaking poetic accuracy.

Growing ranks at their live shows have been treated to jaw-dropping, passionate performances of righteous rock 'n' roll ripped through with raw emotion and depth, earning comparisons with Arcade Fire, Bruce Springsteen, The Killers, Elbow and Neil Young.
