Rhythm of the World is the title of a brand new studio album from The Cowsills, the renowned family band/singing group that originally formed in the 1960s, broke through with significant early success and has enjoyed decades of activity since.

And a bit more about the album, from Bob Cowsill: “With a few exceptions we co-wrote the 11 songs for Rhythm Of The World with each other during our Happy Together summer tour. We wrote them in our hotel rooms on our tour bus and in our dressing rooms. From Howard Kaylan’s (The Turtles) exuberant plea with the audience each night of the tour giving us inspiration for ‘Ya Gotta Get Up!’ to ‘Katrina’ (the first-person account of our brother Barry’s death during hurricane Katrina in New Orleans) and all the songs in between, we use melody and harmony to bring some love and the hope of peace to the world. Frank Filipetti was our mix engineer and Greg Calbi mastered it (Rock’s doing) so these songs have passed through the hands and ears of two of the best. Gail Marowitz and Danny Clinch teamed up for a great cover and packaging and with the Omnivore blessing, Rhythm Of The World is now ready for prime time! We are thrilled to be here to claim our legacy and share our music!!!”
