New album Strings To Tracks

Get GigsQuantcast

COUSTI came together in 2006 to write and record music based entirely on their own Individual tastes and influences. Drawing on a wealth of experience spanning over four decades from the mid sixties to the present day Cousti’s influences range from such early artistes as the Gratefull dead to Jackson Brown, Jackie Lomax and Stevie Ray Vaughan. to more lesser known artistes like Big House. Using this enormous library of knowledge Cousti paint their music on a broad canvas, from the emotional complexities of everyday life to songs such as the inspirational ‘Borderline,’ highlighting the plight of poor people in Mexico converging on the U.S border in search of a better life. In late 2006, Cousti won a competition run by the Glasgow fringe, then a branch of the world famous and prestigious Celtic Connections festival held annually in the city, and this inspired them to push on to the serious work of writing their debut album. To date Cousti have written over one hundred songs ranging in styles from the beautiful ‘Mallaig’ with it’s Celtic connotations and ‘Sweetest tunes’ a tribute to the legendary Bob Harris, to more trance like songs such as ‘What goes on’ and ‘Without you’, creating a warmth and texture in their sound which is totally unique in today’s climate of industry manufactured music.
Today in 2010 Cousti are still prolifically writing and constantly surprising themselves with the diversity of the songs they come up with, to quote Matt Morrow Cousti’s guitar man, “ We write songs about how we feel" this is why you’ll find it difficult to ‘pigeonhole’ Cousti into any single category, In their own way the band are unique.

Cousti along with their many admirers and fans now look forward to the release of their long awaited debut album " String To Tracks" To be released in Feb 2011, and are already hard at work writing and recording their follow up album.

"Age means nothing when the songs are absolute top drawer quality
- Alan McGee, ex director Creation Records

"Great songs well played and sung, what more could you ask for
- Billy Sloan, Music Editor Scottish Daily Record and Sunday Mail

They're a band born to make you happy and I reckon 'Strings to Tracks' is already firmly in my favourites box. John Davy
