Cold Weather Kids, based out of Los Angeles, CA, began as a passion project between Adam Allison and Ryan Scottie. The two had met while attending college in Chicago in the early 2010s and instantly formed a lifelong friendship.
That friendship would take them to Los Angeles in 2016, where they would each pursue music through different outlets. Adam Allison began working closely with songwriter/producer Andrew Watt, and splitting time helping to run a local Hollywood recording studio, Rev 9 Recording; and Ryan began working as a session/hired gun for various bands and projects in the area.
It was at Rev 9 Recording where Adam met Erik Williams, who was drumming for the band Water District at the time. Adam soon joined Water District for a brief period, and during his time in the band, Ryan Scottie was asked to join the band as the new bassist. Throughout the years, Adam and Ryan had continued to write and record songs in their spare time, and once Water District dissolved, the trio of Adam, Ryan and Erik had developed a friendship and taste in music that would continue into Cold Weather Kids.
Guitarist Chris Avina joined the lineup in the spring of 2019, and the band began writing and recording future releases.
On their new single, “Outta Sight Outta Mind”, vocalist Adam comments: “Wrote this song about the challenges of a seperation that takes a toll on your mind. In the lyric “if youre out of sight then im out of my mind”, its easy to relate to losing someone so close that it makes you feel like youre losing your mind.”
