Any Way the Wind Blows
I Was a Fool
Going Down Easy
I Ain’t The One
Might As Well Die
Formed in 2012 after the duo had spent a number of years in other bands, Chris Tapp and Brian Mullins got together initially just to jam. No preconceived notions on what the project should be. The result is a hard rocking, story-based brand of rock and roll that is sung from the soul. Chris’ unique guitar rig along with Mullin’s giant bass drum provides a vast and robust sonic highway for the two to travel that truly sets them apart from other acts. It is genuinely astonishing that a two-piece can create the layers and depth found in the music made by THE COLD STARES . Speaking on his first live experience of the band, Nashville radio personality Dan Buckley says “ The first time I saw them, I thought they had at least two other musicians secretly behind the curtain. There’s just no way that sound comes from the two of them. ”
THE COLD STARES have had tracks featured by Dodge Motor Company , ESPN , NFL , X-Games , TNT Network and Monster Energy and are endorsed by PRS Guitars .
Keep it locked for more to come from THE COLD STARES in the coming weeks.
