Join us on Sunday March 6th for our feature at Freddy’s Back Room at Mimsey Mack’s Open Mic. Can’t wait to see you there!
We are Cupid and the Cowboy, a pop/country duo out of New York. Cupid is “a real dish” (guitar, vocals) and Maynard Watson is “a buckaroo,” essentially, a jive cowboy. (guitar, vocals, drums).
Cupid was born and raised in the Bronx, NY and wrote a book of songs after graduating from Bowdoin College. She is a regular at open mics in Brooklyn, Manhattan and participated in Jack Hardy’s Songwriting exchange in NYC.
Maynard was born in Northern California then moved Southern Cal. explains his music as a bit Bakersfield Sound meets punk rock of his Orange County youth. And finally wrapped in sage brush out and around Reno, Nevada.
Together they are original, fiery and smooth.
