Cold Driven is a distinctive Rock band inspired by many different influences, expressing different emotions and painting vivid pictures with sound.
Through great struggle comes great art. Cold Driven is a group of five people who have a vision, share similar tastes, but all want the same goal.
Cold Driven’s debut album, Set In Stone established the group as a fresh new force, which reveals a multi-faced group that thrives on creative exploration and escape. They’ve worked hard to create something very special and different the first time around sonically and conceptually. The musical and lyrical changes that resonate throughout the record reflect the sometimes-painful development that the band members underwent before and during the creation of this record. Their music features energetic keyboards, vast abrasive guitars, infectious vocals that are spiked with hip-hop, punk, and metal with a dash of classical guitar.
Dennis, Shane, Billy, Ben and Joe come from very diverse musical backgrounds, each bringing something different to the table. Their self-taught talents were used as a way to express their emotions and aspirations, it was a natural progression that led to the birth of Cold Driven.
Their combination of heavy rock with surreal ominous strains of throbbing beats to passive acoustic strumming of a melancholy melody made their soundtracks a testament to the durability of the human spirit. Cold Driven has been featured in a number of articles is several well-known North Okanagan periodicals. Their music grabbed the attention of a wide range of audiences resulting in such comments as;
- “Strong, well written songs delivered from the heart which sounds like a ton of bricks!
- “A huge blend of music that kicks A$$!! Rock fans get ready for a new band, with songs that won’t leave your head.”
Their latest endeavors included opening for K-OS at the Bluff in Kelowna, BC on June 29, 2005, and being featured at X-10sions 207”s Grand Opening in Kelowna, BC. Their highly successful CD (Set In Stone) release party at Dixon’s Pub in Salmon Arm, BC rocked the house down.
They have been showcased on radio stations such as Z-98 Sioux City, IA, XM Satellite Radio Washington DC, Rock the Box in the UK, Power 104.7 FM Kelowna BC, and 99.3 The Fox in Vancouver BC.
Cold Driven is striving to do something different, make their own mark. Their combination of musical prowess, passionate vocals and crowd capturing intensity makes them an addiction to the senses.
