Cold Weather Kids, based out of Los Angeles, CA, began as a passion project between Adam Allison and Ryan Scottie. The two had met while attending college in Chicago in the early 2010s and instantly formed a lifelong friendship.
Following their debut EP "Songs We Can't Finish" which dropped August of 2020, the band followed up by raising the bar with "Quarantunes" a three song EP made from the time spent inside working remotely due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
While there were multiple songs written about the global pandemic around the world Cold Weather Kids truly made a name for themselves after the pandemic anthem "Stolen Summer" was released in July of 2021. Gathering more fans through that one song than all of their previous releases combined the pressure was there for the band to follow up their most successful song with something just an impactful.
Count To Ten released in April of 2022 and uniquely explores the simple idea of getting mad and transforming that destructive energy into something positive by encouraging the listener to let it all go and dance.
Cold Weather Kids are playing all around the Los Angeles area the summer of 2022.
Our biggest resource is our producer/mixing engineer "Nick Radovanovic" (www.nickrad.com) We've had a long relationship with him and our singer/songwriter, Ryan Scottie, actually manages his current website. He's guided us on how to track and produce a high quality stem to send to him to mix without ever having to pay for studio time. This saves a label an ENORMOUS amount on album budget because there is literally no tracking or pre-production cost. We already possess a process that enables us to record and edit all on our own at a high level and then digitally send to Nick to mix. This means the budget for producing an album (before physical production) is only required for mixing and mastering.
Ryan Scottie is not only our primary songwriter but he also coordinates a lot of the accompanying media. The couch shirt design, every music video (including the animation) and website design you're looking at now was all made and assembled by a member of the band. This is demonstrating a foundational understanding that the work for a band doesn't stop when you're off stage.
Every member of the band has been in previous touring projects. Experience in travel and networking is something we've all picked up and covet as an essential skill for being a performer.
We've garnered an audience across all social media platforms without having any major promotional campaign behind our name. In the 2+ years we've been active the band has amassed over 50,000 monthly listeners, 500 YouTube subscribers, and thousands of followers across Tik Tok and Instagram.
