Chris Colepaugh and the Cosmic Crew
Thu, Jul 23
The Slice - Lethbridge


 I am pumped this Moncton based psychedelic blues trio is coming to Lethbridge. I’ve seen their high energy virtuostic shows many times , which anybody into blues music and psychedelic jamming will completely dig and love.
CHRIS COLEPAUGH channels the cry of a Gibson doubleneck 12/6 through the power of an over-driven tube amp in a hard-driving southern-rock groove. Multi-award winning, international touring and with a fest o' crunchy guitar licks, Colepaugh will have you air-guitaring all night long.
CHRIS COLEPAUGH is blazing a trail with his album “In Your Backyard.” The album drips with thick electric guitars, Bonham-esque style drums, massive bass, and soulful songwriting and lyrics. From the heavy guitar-soaked-rocker-single “Caught Up To You” , to the acoustic guitar/mandolin picking of “Don’t Want You ‘Round No More”, “In Your Backyard “is a fantastic guitar-intense, southern rock album.
CHRIS COLEPAUGH has performed at festivals in Canada and the United States including SXSW , CMW, NXNE, NEMO, Evolve, Canadian Music Cafe and have toured extensively with over fifteen national coast-to-coast tours including tours in the United States. Part of his US itineraries have included dates with Government Mule, North Mississippi Allstars as well as performances at the House Of Blues, tours of New England and southern US, the U.S. West Coast and two tours of Southern California . 
Chris was announced as a finalist for the 2008 International Acoustic Music Awards and won both the 2007 Contact East Touring Excellence Award and four 2007 Toronto Music Magazine Awards.  He also recently signed an endorsement deal with Sennheiser Microphones, Gibson guitars ( full feature and interview on USA ) and Traynor Amplifiers, and signed a deal with his Management Company and Fontana North Distribution. In addition, after the album “In Your Backyard” was completed, Chris spent two weeks in Austin, Texas working under the mentorship of platinum selling artist/producer Gordie Johnson on his new Grady CD project at Willie Nelson’s Studios. “ Working with Gordie was an incredible experience. “ says Colepaugh who works in the industry as a music producer himself. “ It was inspiring to see Willie’s platinum records on the wall everyday and to think of the caliber of musicians that have recorded at Pedernales.”
Chris was also a semi finalist in the Starbucks Music Maker Series in Vermont and was featured alongside of Moe., Bob Weir and Umphrey’s McGee on the 2007 - 10,000 Lakes Festival CD, on the 2007 Atlantic Film Festival Compilation CD and on the 2007 Dewey Beach Music Festival Compilation CD.
