about

"A Love Note to Rio" is Ross Cohen's fifth collection of songs. A reflection of his time spent living on the border between Texas and Mexico, the album draws its inspiration from the work of troubadours like Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, the spare beauty of South Texas, and the acoustic folk traditions that have come to define Ross Cohen's musical style.

Love and loss, borders and blues, murder and margaritas, "A Love Note to Rio" is a musical snapshot of a time and a place dear to its singer's heart.

What critics are saying:

“'A Love Note to Rio' is Cohen’s blues-inspired collection of poignant, touching, oftentimes heartbreaking, yet hopeful tales of his two years in Texas. Touched with country and southwestern influences and rife with vivid storytelling, 'A Love Note to Rio' shares tales of love, loss, longing and 27-1/2-hour car trips." - Craig Ostroff, Montgomery Media

Each track can be downloaded individually. Listeners who purchase the whole album will also receive the BONUS TRACK "Highway 83."
