Cold Roses
Cold Roses
Blending old-soul blues and country with a young rock energy, the Cold Roses have developed a pure sound with a gritty, gravely edge that “makes Johnny Cash sound like T-Rex.” With a groove that sounds older than any of them could be, Cold Roses use deeply personal, whiskey soaked lyrics and "crank a hard-punching, slow-moving beat that embodies perseverance, blunted longing and a wary acknowledgement of the worst-case scenario" (PW). Formed in late 2010, the four members of the Roses came from varied musical backgrounds and influences, but found a common bond in their shared love of Americana, blues, and rock and roll. Playing original songs that appeal to any generation, their energetic and eclectic live performances quickly showed their tight bond and soulfully different sound, and have made them a regular fixture in the Philadelphia area.

The Rivals
The Rivals have taken a dark and brooding mix of blues and rock and roll to the depths of the Philadelphia underground. In the bands first year it produced two albums; A stripped down, garage rock EP in Nomad followed by their first full length LP entitled Divine Lorraine.

The band consists of three songwriters Rob Swift, Wayne Gallagher, and Tom Williamson trading off lead vocal duties. With the addition of Reilly Somach on drums, The Rivals are evolving their hard-hitting brand of rock and roll, writing and recording a new EP due out this spring.
