Cousin Harley

(Vancouver, BC)

Behind Cousin Harley leader Paul Pigat’s unassuming grin and Doc Watson glasses lurks a restless, combustible musical imagination. Blessed with a jazzman's sheen, rockabilly heart and hobo's soul, Pigat creates sweet, distinctive guitar sounds. Whether playing with his trio on one of their 5 releases, doing a searing solo that elevates The Sojourners’ soaring vocals, doing the axe work for Jakob Dylan, Jim Byrnes or Neko Case, he’s at once a genteel sideman, unrepentant redneck, sensitive singer/songwriter and multi-faceted composer.
