Biography: Stewart Cochran Biography

Stewart Cochran came into this world October 13, 1964 in Greensboro, North Carolina. He joined his older sister, actress Shannon Cochran, in developing a performer's personality, appearing in hometown theater productions and studying music. He's an alumni of University of Texas where he studied music and performed in the jazz orchestra.

Cochran first studied piano and accordian. As he grew he added electric keyboards and organs, and synthesizers. He went through a Jan Hammer-like period where he played a bank of synthesizers and electric keyboards but his musical growth took him back to older organs such as the Hammond and Rhodes which he plays in 54 Seconds. He also plays guitar and sings.

Cochran has played with a variety of bands, performing many musical styles, including alternative, country, rockabilly and pop. He curently plays in 54 Seconds, Plum, Troy Dillinger and Del Dragons, Honky Donkey and Wyckham Porteus. He has performed and recorded with Jimmy LaFave and Night Tribe, and David Garza (Daveed). Cochran appears on a multitude of other artists' CDs including Abra Moore, Great Divide, Kacy Crowley, J.P. Allen, Red Dirt Rangers, Friends of Dean Martinez, Michelle Solberg, Roxanne Hale and Shane Cannady. He's appeared on the well-known U.S. television show, "Austin City Limits," twice, with Charlie Robison and Jimmy LaFave. Cochran also appears in music video for Roxanne Hale's "Wallace" and Michelle Solberg's "Skin."

Personally, he married singer/songwriter Gemma Cochran in 1990s but the two amicably divorced. Both performed with Jimmy LaFave in the 1990s and appear together on LaFave's "Trail" CD.

Cochran keeps his 6'2", 185 lb. frame in shape with running, weight-lifting, and water-skiing. His hobbies include yoga, and blowing smoke rings. Like band mate Spencer Gibb, Cochran owns his own recording studio.
