"Kalamazoo's Cold Mountain Child brings poetic beauty, lush "complex vibes" to the indie-folk scene." John Sinkevics, WYCE
Cold Mountain Child creates songs rooted in pastoral folk structures, offering an aural tapestry that includes traditional roots americana, neo-soul groove and psychedelic nature narratives. Singer-songwriter Tyler Bradley chants of ecstatic agency, tender loving and a yearning for new realities beyond the mundane. Their live performances offer both lyrical acoustic ballads and a lush full-band vibe which adds influences from jazz, tropicalia and reggae. At home in travel trailers, orchards, and in sun-baked patios, their sound strides psychic and cultural borders, from rural southwest Michigan to barrios in southern Mexico. Their sounds are a humble exaltation to wild nature, including the human that glows in each of us.
The band manifests concurrently as a four-piece act and solo acoustic experience, beginning work on LP2 in 2016. They've shared stages with The Ragbirds, Strawberry Heritage, Red Tail Ring, Chris Bathgate, Matt Jones, Elisabeth Pixley-Fink and Jeffrey Lewis. Join them for their next live performance and ride the earth wave!
