"Dublin band Cold Comfort are a promising new addition to the Irish music scene" Hotpress
With Rob Walsh on vocal, guitar and harmonica, Colm Hassett on drums and percussion, Joey Mcgowan on bass guitar and Eoin 'Mossy' Morrissey on lead guitar, Cold Comfort are a band set to take you on a journey.
Their catchy songs tell tales of misspent adventure, lost friends & honest poetic observations on the way we live. They have been together for just over a year and have gathered a dedicated cult following in that time. Their music has been described as “a cocktail of blues, rock & roll and country" but they go beyond these genres to create a funky, foot-stomping, eclectic sound.
Last year, they gigged regularly with support slots for Whipping Boy on their Periscopes up tour and Alabama 3 on their recent UK tour (with Rob Co-writing songs for their recent Shoplifting for jesus Album). They also played Sibin, Vantastival, Ballinamore Fringe Fest and Knockanstockan to name a few and plan to take many more festivals by storm this summer. They’ve already been added to The Vantastival line-up for 2012 and will also be headlining The Workmans on the 24th Of February.
"With the deliciously tuneful Rob Walsh on the mic and Colm Hassett of Whipping Boy on drums, it comes as no surprise that folk rock fivesome Cold Comfort have produced a thoroughly enchanting debut single. There’s a kind of humdrum charm to ‘Sweet Light’, but once you hear those epic strings kick in, you’re bound to give it a second listen"
