INDEPENDENT ALTERNATIVE FOLK
“We wanted to open up and find our unique sound. And now we’re going to places in songs we never thought we could go.”
So says Steve Shimchick, one-third of rising musical force Cold Weather Company. On Find Light, the third album from the New Jersey-based trio of Shimchick, Brian Curry and Jeff Petescia, the group expands mightily on their core of two guitars and a piano. Here, they’ve roped in a number of friends and contemporaries on percussion, bass, cello, violin, trumpet, flute, sax and clarinet, creating a soundtrack that moves far beyond the band’s lean sounds of 2015’s Somewhere New and 2016’s A Folded Letter.
