The modern era of music has given way to enigmas and artists of all shapes and forms who break the norm of what we have come to expect as far as what an artist truly is. Cold Shoulder is one such band that epitomizes the essence of the modern era. A multi-faceted Rock Band based in San Francisco. Cold Shoulder is making music that is thoughtful, conscious and driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, comfort and spread love and joy to all those that hear it.
Cold Shoulder is comprised of 4 musicians namely Jacob Baptista (drums), Joe Faria (guitar), Jason Kinney (Bass) and Marcus Dylan (Vocals) who met through a craigslist ad. Little did they know that this fortuitous crossing of paths was the genesis of a great musical journey. They hit it off instantly and developed a style of songwriting and rock that is transparent, daring and reflective of the experiences of the Band.
Cold Shoulder is heavily influenced by their love of grunge, early 2000’s and hard rock music. They accredit the pivotal influences and inspiration in their music to Alice in Chains, Dirty Honey and Badflower. This all culminates in Cold Shoulder producing a musical experience that is exciting and thought provoking. Their overarching ambition is to bring back the back the sound of rock that invokes the nostalgia of the music you love while bringing you a new fresh sound that is just as captivating.
Cold Shoulder has released their much-anticipated self-titled debut EP today, June 11th, 2021. Cold Shoulder will set themselves apart from today’s artists by continuing to be authentically true to themselves and bringing you the best music hard rock has to offer. Debut EP is Available Now!

“…the band seems to speak as an omniscient narrator or guide to the listener, using motivating lyrics like “Stuck in your head again, don’t listen to the voices, take my advice friend, don’t hesitate, been working too hard for this” as a call to action, for whoever is listening to take charge, take action, and go after their wildest dreams and ambitions… The opening riff is killer and will most definitely get stuck in your head (not that I’m complaining!) and the quieter verse/louder chorus dynamic is yet another awesome aspect that sets this song apart. With a slower, trippy breakdown that launches into a powerful finale, this tune is, without a doubt, one you can’t miss.”– Evie Wagner (Banded PR)
“I love their sound, It’s a mixture of 90s grunge, but with a fresh hard rock take on it. I love that they’re young upcoming talented guys. I cannot wait to see them live once we are able to go to concerts again.”– Baby Huey (107.7 The Bone)
“Very impressed with these youngsters and as they evolve their songwriting and balance the image and become better acquainted with the live forum they will be a force as there is true promise here.” – hardrockcore
