Steve Cowan

Steve Cowan has firmly established himself as a compelling performer within the North American guitar scene. Top prizes in several competitions have led him to concert appearances throughout Canada and the United States, where he has been praised for his powerful sound, insightful interpretations, and unique repertoire choice. Concert programs often include pieces from a variety of eras, but Steve focuses primarily on new music. Commissioning young composers and presenting Canadian guitar works are driving forces in his musical life.

International awards include first prizes at Guitare Montréal, the Wilson Center Guitar Festival and Competition, and Boston GuitarFest. Originally from St. John’s, Newfoundland, Steve holds degrees from Memorial University, the Manhattan School of Music, and is currently pursuing Doctoral studies at McGill University in Montréal. His debut album, Pour guitare, was recorded with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and McGill University. The album features new music by exclusively Canadian composers and was released in Spring, 2016.
