Cold Chocolate
Cold Chocolate
Cold Chocolate guitarist/songwriter Ethan Robbins believes that the rootsy sounds of bluegrass music were meant to be fused with the backbeat of funk. Ethan’s bluegrass career began at Oberlin College. There he met upright bassist Kirsten Lamb, and the two began developing a new style of sophisticated but accessible Americana. Now joined by the jazz-inflected banjo of James McIver and the all-out funkiness of drummer Ariel Bernstein, Cold Chocolate proves to be an innovative Americana act with their debut album “This Old Way.” Hailing from Boston’s vibrant acoustic scene, Cold Chocolate has built a reputation for creating original, exciting, and virtuosic tunes.
