Lowenstein teams with Firstman for The Cordovas

Tuesday, September 13, 2011 – Jaron Lowenstein of Jaron and the Long Road to Love, known for his country hit "Pray For You and early 2000's Crazy for this Girl from pop duo, Evan and Jaron, recorded music with Joe Firstman and their new band Cordovas.

The new release, which shifts from Southern Rock to Alt/Country to Gospel then Bluegrass, sometimes within a single track, is available worldwide on iTunes and TheCordovas.com today. The sextet is front lead singers Lowenstein, Firstman and Jon Loyd.

"This whole project has been one giant musical evolution... and still continues to evolve daily," said Lowenstein. "Joe and I had no idea where this would lead when we began working together back in May, but we knew that combining our strengths would lead to a sum that is greater than the individual parts. We set out to create the best music we could - music that would inspire us first with the belief that if we're moved by it, others will be too."

The band is making the new album available for sale in physical form at live shows, digitally worldwide on iTunes and for a free download at their official website, TheCordovas.com. Their decision to allow it to be downloaded for free stems from their belief that art should be made available to everyone with no barrier for entry.

"Superfans will immediately buy the record, some may download and then buy it for a friend or some may enjoy it and never pay for it," Lowenstein said. "How they get the album isn't our concern. That they get the album is."

Songs are:

1. All I Found (3:05)

2. Southern Rain (6:14)

3. Maria (4:41)

4. Step-back Red (4:20)

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
