  1. Family
    Family
    We enter the field as individuals but leave as a family. Our family is there for the good and the band. We have each others backs. There are no obstacles we cannot tackle alone. Family means nobody is left behind or forgotten.
  2. Dedication
    Dedication
    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they can't get it wrong. There is no mountain too high and no task to big. We will persevere, innovate and carry on until our dreams are met. After that we will dream even bigger and fight even harder to make those happen.
  3. Love
    Love
    Love connects all of the other core values. It is the purpose that drives what we do. We love ourselves, each other, our instruments, creating art, and doing what we do. Love gives it all meaning.

    Cowboy Pride
    A band doesn't have pride because they sound good. A band sounds good because they have pride. Pride in ourselves, pride in each other, pride in what we have and what we do. Pride is leaving everything and everyone better than you found it.
