About the band
Urban folk tales inspired by both the vibrant streets of South London and a childhood among the epic landscapes and beauty of the Alaskan woods; NO COWRD SOUL are delighted to announce the release of their second Album titled THE BOONDOX. Available to stream and download plus a limited edition CD.
An excellent album, combines fine vocal harmonies with a wonderful variety of well-crafted songs. Simply gets better with repeated plays"
8/10 Review, Americana UK (Dec 2020)
Originally from Alaska, Brad Schmauss is a London based artist who’s long time musical partnership with Martin Gray (Piano, guitars, vocals) has culminated in this fantastic live band known as NO COWARD SOUL. Gigging across the UK in recent years, the band has grown from a vocal harmony acoustic set up and now includes a sensational rhythm section featuring Jules Clement-Smith and new addition Sam Kinsey with glock, mouth organ, ukelele and trademark siren backing vocals from Sarah "Egg" Phillips.
It’s sophisticated and it’s polished. More than just Americana”

REVIEWS FOR THE ALMANAC
ROCKIN' MAGPIE / JULY 2018
“Broodily intriguing Americana....this is a good old fashioned Long Player that demands your full attention from start to finish”
MAXIMUN VOLUME MUSIC / JULY 2018
“Touches brilliance.'The Almanac' is not the sound of a band that is putting out a debut album of great promise, but one which is already delivering. 8.5/10”
ROCK N REEL MAGAZINE / AUGUST 2018
"The vocal harmonising is beautiful - the players gel seamlessly. Offers depth and variety to keep you listening”
If you triangulate Old Crow Medicine Show, Nickel Creek, and Turnpike Troubadours, the sweet point in the middle would be No Coward Soul- passionate, menacing, exhilarating songs, dexterous, charismatic vocals.. tremendous!”
