Acid Cowboy
Los Angeles based Acid Cowboy is a musical act primarily based on the work of singer/songwriter Ross Francis. Not bound by the confines of any 1 genre, his musical vision is one of adventure and insight. Ross Francis’ first journey within the creative field was with short film and poetry, but soon he craved putting his words and visuals to music. Growing up in Arkansas, Ross listened to the likes of Pantera, Soundgarden, and Hendrix, but also admired the lyricism of Tupac and the soulfulness of Jodeci. Acid Cowboy’s style has a core of blues-y rock n’ roll that oozes off of him, but the influences of Ross Francis lends the sound an ever evolving feel. His passion for storytelling is evident in his lyrics; inspired by country/folk legends Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, who also play a part in the harmonica features played by Ross himself.

Leaving Arkansas at 22, Ross made his way to Florida where he decided to take an acting class. Performing a scene from “The Doors” biopic inspired him to start making music of his own, so he joined a band shortly after. Leaving Florida for a short stint in Louisiana, he then found himself in Los Angeles where he met his producer, Jordan Chini. Acid Cowboy came to be in 2008 and Ross took the time to develop his craft until first studio album “Joker Gypsy Country Hippy,”(2018). Hot off of that momentum, they dropped EP “Bare Bones,” a collection of live performances of covers from the original album. With this momentum, he doesn’t show any plans of stopping.
