Lead by San Francisco’s Pete Frauenfelder, Slow Motion Cowboys have been combing the country collecting songs and collaborators to conceive their own brand of Country Americana since 2002. On their first full length album “Buzzard Songs” the Slow Motion Cowboys recount the tales of the road with a cool and easy feeling, heavy on the harmonies and hawaiian guitar. Playing in the country punk outfit Trainwreck Riders over the last 10 years, Pete cut his teeth on the DIY circuit, playing house shows and bars from coast to coast. But where Trainwreck Riders throws down the intensity, SMC pushes the soul. With a stripped down approach to folk music, the tunes of SMC resonate with honesty and heartbreak under the framework of traditional country arrangements.
