Cordovas is an American rock band created in 2011 by musician Joe Firstman based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Members include Joe Firstman, Lucca Soria, Jon Loyd, and Graham Spillman.
Cordovas' self-titled full length studio album was produced in 2011 by Rick Parker of Sandbox Studios in Los Angeles, California. The band then recorded a live album Cordovas Live from Nashville later that year. Of the band and their album, Wakarusa Music Festival writes, "Recorded a few short months and fifty-odd tour dates after the release of the Cordovas' self-titled debut, Live from Nashville shows the group hitting their collective stride like a ton of bricks hurled at warp speed through the window of some imaginary house of blues, bluegrass, country, and jam-based rock. The album comprises nine original tracks from the Cordovas' energy-drenched performance at 3rd and Lindsley, in the town where the band originated. Fittingly, much of the subject matter on the album centers on the idea of coming home, both literally ("Old Dog" and "Angel Moon") and spiritually ("All I Found" and "Feel Good to Be Free"). While it's tempting to characterize the Cordovas as a throwback to 1970s-era Capricorn label artists, that designation falls short. The Cordovas aren't tethered to a specific geographical location but to a set of ideas: pure musicianship and earnest songwriting. Their songs would sound just as good played live on your neighbor's porch, stripped of the bells and whistles that a studio session could provide. Simply put, the Cordovas are a must-see live act."
Cordovas have appeared in the Wakarusa Music Festival in Arkansas, The Southern Ground Music Festival in South Carolina, and The Todos Santos Music Festival in Mexico.
The Cordovas live in Nashville, TN. The band is currently working on a new album, produced by Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids.
