Winners of the 2016 D.C. Bluegrass Union’s Mid Atlantic Bluegrass band contest in Washington D.C., among many another awards, Colebrook Road has become a standout string band, a bluegrass powerhouse made up of five individuals whose sum is more than the total of their talents.
From modest beginnings as a four-piece band, Colebrook Road now plays as a five-piece ensemble and has become a familiar name throughout the Mid Atlantic region.
In addition to award-winning members from an array of backgrounds, the songs performed are almost exclusively original compositions with varying themes. The band writes intricate and dynamic arrangements filled with both vocal and instrumental harmony that creates an interestingly modern, complex, and varied sound while still adhering to the larger bluegrass genre. Colebrook Road is a standout string band.
Late in the summer of 2018, John Rossey (Guitar/Vocals) began envisioning a new kind of project; one that would remain true to its roots of Americana and country music, and breathe new life into American rock & roll.
John met Brandon Valentine (Drums/Vocals) while working together in Central Pennsylvania based country group, "Mountain Road". As a multi-instrumentalist, he brought an articulate approach to percussion, combining a gifted ear for dynamic song writing with huge vocal harmonies.
John and Cody Wilt (Guitar/Vocals) had occasionally crossed paths in the greater Harrisburg area while working with other bands as lead guitarists. Cody recalls first meeting John in a bar in Mechanicsburg: "As soon as [John] started playing it was all eyes on him.... His tone commanded the room,". At the time, Cody was rotating between bands. Frustrated by experiences with other groups in the area, Cody jumped at the opportunity to join up with John.
While seeking a bassist for the new band, Brandon recommended reaching out to Morgan Stambaugh (Bass/Vocals). Morgan and Brandon were friends through high school and both studied at the same university, where they played together in multiple groups. With thundering bass lines, classical training and an encyclopedia of music production knowledge, Morgan was the final piece in establishing a solid lineup that would later become Cold Spring Union.
Within just a few weeks of forming, Cold Spring Union was performing at legendary venues such as the Chameleon Club (Lancaster, PA) as well as festivals, including The Citadel Country Spirit Music Festival in 2018. The band has opened for national acts such as Shooter Jennings, Brett Young, Dustin Lynch, Cassadee Pope, Alabama, Sam Bush, Ward Hayden and the Outliers, and more.
