Officially launched in 2015 with the debut record in the can, the band was started in the ashes of The Brew. The new band pivoted quickly to capture something special. With the relentless pop hooks of The Police, Queen, The Smiths, Neil Young and The Beatles serving as inspiration, Cold Engines knew exactly what they were after.
Capturing the urgency and catchiness of the golden era of pop music, the band garnered an obsession. Honing the group with additions of journeyman Boston heavyweights was necessary. A slew of guest stars appear on the many records including Amelia Gormley, Eric Reingold, Matt Pynn, Jon Persson, John Funkhouser, Emily Garcia, Chris Plante, Seth Campbell, Jordan Holt, Alice Austin, Adam Ezra, Audrey Ryan, Johnny Bluehorn, Andrew Fogliano, and Ben Alleman with Tim Phillips in NYC heading up the recording team.
Cold Engines has won and been recognized for Rock Band Of The Year in both 2016 and 2022 as well as Song Of The Year and Album Of The Year at the New England Music Awards. Subsequent nominations for New Act Of The Year and more have been handed down in multiple Northeast award shows. The industry has clearly taken notice. Now six years in, the band has found itself fully and without apology as a recording and songwriting force with their 13th release, Flower Covered Hills-The Final Chapter releasing on Aug. 11th, 2023.
