Bonded together by the members' common interest in a musically historical and honest sound, Cold Tone Harvest formed in southeast Michigan in late 2008. The band comprises singer/songwriter Andrew Sigworth, bassist Ozzie Andrews, drummer/banjo player Brian Williams, and guitarist Anthony Pace. Their union came to fruition much like the music itself did: formulated with patience and mixed with a rugged determination. The paradoxical name proves itself uncannily fitting, as expertly delivered Americana tropes and soundscapes gradually crack at the seams, revealing a shimmering sliver of something else entirely. Country-infused melodies and rhythms lace with a lush ambience often reserved for the loneliest of instrumental compositions. Rich and rugged baritone vocals, clearly suited to whiskey songs and heartache anthems, instead turn their howls and growls towards brave and poetic lyric territory rarely found in a common folk or bluegrass outing. Cold Tone Harvest rides a rare and beautiful line, delivering a wall of sound that will grab the ear of the rowdiest music festival enthusiasts, partnered with the textual eloquence and deeply layered arrangement that begs for solitary repeat listens. Michigan-based singer songmaker and multi-instrumentalist Kate Peterson opens.
