Check out our Podcast page for more information.



Abbi Rajasekhar came to The Cow to track drums and bass for her new album. Abbi can best be described as a singer songwriter; playing acoustic guitar and belting out pure melodies straight from the heart. She brought in producer Patrick DeWitte who will be mixing the album. Members of the band So Long Forgotten (P.J. Pence on drums, Joe on bass and Cameron Yergler on guitar) made a stop between tour dates to play on her album. You can frequently find Abbi playing at Potbelly's sandwich shops in the Chicago area.

Rock band Fair Herald is in the final stages of mixing their 6 song EP. Blending rock and alternative with melodies, Fair Herald is getting ready to take over the world...starting with Chicago. Check them out at www.fairherald.com

Cow regular Gary Landess is starting serious work on his next album which will most likely be a collection of cover songs from his favorite artists, including ZZ Top and Howlin' Wolf. Gary has also brought in bassist/producer/friend Kevin Mayes. Kevin has run his own studio, Diamond Studios in Chicago, and played with the likes of Prince (the purple one himself). Check out Gary's first release, Rise of the Multiforms (recorded here) at www.garylandess.com.
