Having started out in the late 80s DJing on Sound Systems: Eastman, Gemi Magic, Wisdom Hardcore and Tippatone to name but a few. After gaining a sizeable following especially on the East and North side of London through stage shows, festivals and working on sound systems. Naturally the next progression was to go onto the studio and put all of those lyrics on plastic. 1992 was the year when Cowboy had his first record released on Sir George label with a track entitled Screwface Even though the competition was rife in reggae music on both sides of the Atlantic between 92 96 Cowboy perused his recording career diligently with a steady flow of 7 and 12 singles. He also featured on numerous compilation albums i.e.: Crimestoppa & Friends Mafia & Fluxys Bellevue Ridim (and a greensleeves ragga jungle compilation).

He was also a supporting act for Bounty Killa (spring 2000 at The Stratford Rex)
In 2001 Cowboy was asked to join a group by his long time cohort Demolition Man (of the jungle hit Fire fame) and formed the Dem Lott Crew. They achieved mainstream success with the chart hit single Dem Lotts Ere Now
Presently Cowboy is very much focusing on the MCing, recording and releasing material in Jungle and Drum n Bass Scene. Cowboy is a currently a resident mc at MC Convention and Jungle Splash to a few and has been performing in Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy and numerous other venues across Europe and the UK.
