Cobb follows "Southern Star"

Friday, June 9, 2023 – Brent Cobb will release his "Southern Star" on Sept. 22 via Ol' Buddy Records/Thirty Tigers

The title track is out today. Produced by Cobb (his first self-produced album) and recorded at Macon, Ga.'s Capricorn Sound Studios, "Southern Star" is a love-letter to Cobb's southern roots, filled with the sounds and stories of his home state of Georgia.

The 10 songs feature local Georgia musicians

Cobb said, "You know how when you're growing up, you're told that if you ever get lost out there, look for the northern star to help find direction back home? Well, I'm from Georgia. So, I always look for the southern star."

"This album, the songs, the's all a product of where I'm from both musically and environmentally. Historically and presently that place also happens to be the same place that cultivated a good many of the most influential artists in the whole world of music. Music as we know it would not exist without the American south. It's funky and sentimental. It's simple and complex."

Cobb will embark on an extensive headline tour this fall with stops at Austin's Parish, Dallas' Studio at The Factory, Los Angeles' Troubadour, San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, New York's Bowery Ballroom, Cambridge, Mass.'s The Sinclair, Atlanta's Terminal West and Nashville's Brooklyn Bowl

Based in Ellaville, Ga., Cobb has released four albums including his 2022 debut gospel record, "And Now Let's Turn To Page..." and 2020's "Keep 'Em On They Toes."
