A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE COLD CHILLS / NEW BEGINNINGS
Through the years The Cold Chills have evolved and adapted in terms of personality and mind set, while maintaining and staying true to their characteristic groove rock sound. Aaron and Rob moved to L.A. around the same time in 2007. They immediately started jamming and experimenting with a few original songs Aaron had put together. They soon brought in guitarist Zeke Middleton, Aaron's old band mate from Salt Lake, who was living in LA at the time. After a few months of songwriting and sound experimentation, they had a nice set of new songs put together.
They added bass player extraordinaire, Ferrari Watts to provide some low end sound to the material.
Aaron's Tribeca Film Festival compadre', friend, & guitarist, Kevin Crowley
moved to L.A. & joined the band and added a ripping second guitar to help complete the Cold Chills original lineup and establish the characteristic rock sound displayed on their 2010 self titled debut LP release.
joined the lineup in 2011 and added his monster riff style to help polish off recording The Cold Chills sophomore album, "Lighter in the Shadows."
The Cold Chills slimmed down to a 4 piece lineup in 2012 and brought in Jonathan Decker on bass to help complete the melodic 3 song EP release, "Coasting." The Cold Chills capped off 2012 by completing their very 1st music video for the single "Cali Coast".
The Cold Chills, from the very beginning, has been an institution for like minded individuals, and a brotherhood of songwriters, who would like nothing better than to express their soul through solid Rock and Roll at it's finest.
We'd like to thank the founding members of the Cold Chills for their individual passionate contributions, blood, sweat, and soul. You have helped build The Cold Chills to the dignified sound we have today. Thank you brothers, you will always be a part of the Cold Chills fraternity. Much Love!
