August 14, 2013, Nashville, TN… Evansville, KY based rock duo, The Cold Stares, have signed a production deal with legendary engineer and producer, Mark Needham (M.A.N. Entertainment). Band members, Chris Tapp and Brian Mullins, are traveling to Los Angeles to record with Needham at Eastwest Studios in Hollywood, where everyone from Elvis Presley to The Who, to Bob Dylan to Elvis Costello has recorded.

Needham, whose credits include Imagine Dragons, Pink, John Paul White, Train, Neon Trees, and The Killers, discovered The Cold Stares through a submission to his Website by lead singer and guitarist Chris Tapp. “My Webmaster, brought their email to my attention. She said she normally listens to a song once, but found herself listening to The Cold Stares’ music all day, and told me I had to hear it. She was right, I was hooked on first listen and contacted them right away,” adds Needham.

The band is thrilled with the opportunity, “Mark has worked with everyone from Taj Mahal, to Robert Cray, to Pete Yorn and Fleetwood Mac. We are very excited about the project because of Mark’s integrity in the business and his ability to translate what we do into something you hear in your speakers, without sacrificing the energy we have live,” exclaims Tapp.

The Cold Stares will record a full album with Needham, who will then offer the project to labels.

About The Cold Stares:
“Think Black Sabbath meets Zeppelin meets John Lee Hooker…This is blues-rock for the 21st century,” is how Vintage Guitar magazine describes The Cold Stares’ music. Since 2008 the duo of Chris Tapp (vocals, guitar) and Brian Mullins (drums) have been performing together to packed clubs in the south east, and to the shock of audience members, who can’t believe such a huge sound comes from just two musicians. Tapp’s unique guitar rig, along with Mullins’ giant bass drum provides a visual and sonic landscape for the two to travel on different paths than other acts. The result is a hard rocking, story-based brand of rock and roll that is sung from the soul. www.thecoldstares.com

His credits include Platinum selling and Grammy nominated artists: The Killers, Shakira and Chris Isaak as well as Fleetwood Mac, Imagine Dragons, Pink, Train and Blondie.
