New Material – 12/17
Blending equal parts southern-inspired rock with a heavy dose of the blues, Chris Colepaugh has rightfully earned a reputation for crowd-pleasing, hard-driving rock. As the multiple award-winning frontman of the group Chris Colepaugh and the Cosmic Crew and Gold City Ashes, Chris has spent more than two decades actively touring Canada and the United States, supporting acts including Gov't Mule, The North Mississippi All Stars and Big Sugar. The group's latest effort, RnR, pays homage to the stripped down rock and roll of years past, but with modern touches. Chris Colepaugh is proudly endorsed by Gibson Guitars, Black Bridge Amplifiers, Benrod Pedals, Jetslide and Sennheiser Microphones.
