cowboyy are a musical collective. The brainchild of vocalist, lead guitarist, producer and songwriter Stanley Powell (21), he’s joined by three of his best friends, bassist Reubin Yarnold (22), guitarist Kai Smith (19) and drummer Rhys Teal (19) complete the South Coast quartet's line-up.

Pulling inspiration from math rock all the way to jazz, post-punk and electronic music, with a fresh and modern outlook on writing and collaboration, cowboyy strive to create their own unique sound, refusing to be anything but themselves. The result? Something that straddles the lanes of art pop and alternative rock, with guitar lines and bold ambitions to create new sounding music at the forefront of the project. They were invited to play the official Great Escape

Having only formed in January 2022, and going through some initial line-up changes, over the past few months cowboyy have been cultivating a dedicated live following, winning over, and confusing, audiences at every gig they play
