Cold English / Press

“Cold English can teach you a thing or two about harmony. Metro Times needed two hands to check off the genres that this local sextet shifts through. While one guitar clearly rocks, the other is waving in more of a funk direction. The bass breathes some soul in, but the drums slam and snap accommodatingly for a lyricist to rap some smooth bars over. But then things get kind of electronic-heavy when you pour in the keyboards and spacey pedal-effects. This kaleidoscope of genres blends together well, demonstrating the uncanny chemistry struck between these six performers (David Allie on vocals, Andy Hines and Colton Hendrickson on guitars, Alan Gadzinski on keys, Mo Grier on bass, and Ryan Brukwinski on drums), each from unique musical backgrounds.”

“I got acquainted with Cold English through seeing David Allie brilliantly MC live events and figuring he must be one hell of a front person for a band. Turns out he is the vocalist for Cold English, one of the finest hip hop jam collaborations around town. Besides David Allie, the rest of Cold English are accomplished musicians that understand how to combine melody and spontaneity to create original songs that resonate with folks from all walks of life.”

“Cold English reminds me of an updated and sexier version of Sublime with a little more of a hip hop feel to the music.”

“Blending (and balancing) funk, R&B, soul and hip-hop, Cold English sound cool, confident and unabashedly enthusiastic as they run a ambitious gamut of genres on their new record.”
