The Cowsills are a highly acclaimed and veteran pop/bubblegum family group with signature sweet, close-knit harmonies that became famous during the late 1960s. They are best known for such era-defining classics as "The Rain, The Park & Other Things" (1967), "Indian Lake" (1968), and "Hair" (1969), the title song from the rock musical. They performed on numerous TV variety shows and sang the theme to the sitcom, "Love, American Style," for that show's first season.
Formed in 1965 in Newport, Rhode Island, the original hitmaking lineup consisted of six teen siblings - Barry (September 14, 1954 - ca. September 2, 2005), Bill (January 9, 1948 - February 18, 2006), Bob, John, Paul, and Susan - and their mother Barbara (July 12, 1928 - January 31, 1985). The Cowsills were the inspiration for the popular 1970s TV sitcom, "The Partridge Family." After disbanding in 1971, they reunited a number of times over the years to record and perform, with some personnel changes and additions. In 2022, The Cowsills released "Rhythm Of The World," their first album of new material in over 20 years.
