Cold Creek County - Them Dang Rattlers - Ramblin Fever


Cold Creek County come by their name naturally. Cold Creek, after all, runs through the rolling hills, apple orchards and villages in central Ontario near locations the band members call home.

Nestled in the rural in-betweens of Peterborough and Belleville, Ontario, Brandon Scott (lead vocals/acoustic guitar) calls Brighton, population 4,800, home. Drummer Doug Oliver is from nearby Hastings and its 1,200 population. Josh Lester (guitar/vocals) and Justin Lester (bass/vocals), the sons of bluegrass master Emory Lester, hail from the outskirts of Frankford, population 2,500. Lead guitarist Trevor MacLeod, the relative city slicker in the group, is originally from Stratford, Ontario, population 30,000. Band members literally cross Cold Creek to get to each other’s homes.

“I’m a small town guy and I love it,” says Oliver. “Because I’ve been here so much and my community has been so supportive, everyone is loving and small towns have that I’ve-got-your-back vibe no matter what.” “Our Town”, the first single from the band’s debut release, is a rousing sing-along that celebrates what happens when everyone in town lets loose on Friday night.

 “Our Town”, Cold Creek County’s (“) debut single was produced by Scott Cooke (Chase Rice, assistant engineer on Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Dallas Smith) and co –produced by Oliver, who also co-manages the band with Chief, the titular head of Chief Music (Florida-Georgia Line, Dallas Smith, Chris Lane and Joey Moi).

Chief believes Cold Creek County, who’ve already opened for the likes of Emerson Drive, Kira Isabella and Jason Blain in their short time together, have what it takes to touch country fans, be they from small towns or big cities.

“Cold Creek County is a band that has all the pieces to the puzzle to succeed,” he says. “They’re great people with a great drive. They can play, sing and write music that is current and relevant to the country world and their dedication to putting on an amazing live show will surely transform into a large fan base that will follow and love this band.” Cold Creek County deliver a powerful, dynamic sound that’s already captured a sizeable fan base. Being heavily influenced by Country and Rock, the band brings both worlds together in a way that’s sure to get your feet stomping. Cold Creek County spent 2014 honing their sound and performances winning Country Group of the Year at the 2014 Wire Awards and opening for country stars including Dallas Smith, Emerson Drive, Kira Isabella and Jason Blain. 

“It’s our roots,” says lead singer Brandon Scott. “We grew up with rock and country.” Watch for Cold Creek County’s debut release on Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc. coming this fall.



Them Dang Rattlers are a country/rock band from London, ON. Comprised of members, all who come from extensive musical and touring backgrounds in multiple genres, these cowboys have the chops, the knowledge and the talent to get things done, pronto!

Them Dang Rattlers started writing and demoing music in the middle of 2013, and quickly came up with the single "This Ol' Town" as their first piece of music that would be revealed to the public. A music video was eventually made for the track, which was entered into London Ontaro’s 98.1 Free FM "Under the Covers” contest, and by votes, ended up winning the monthly held contest in December of 2013. The band was awarded $4000 in recording time at the revered EMAC Studios in London, ON.

Early 2014, Them Dang Rattlers went into the studio and recorded two tracks, "Little Devil," and "Tuesday Night." The quality and outcome of these two tracks were beyond what the band had imagined, and have been garnering attention nationwide, as well as internationally ever since. As a result, the band started to see show offers, including the 2014 Lachie Music Festival, the 2014 Rockin’ Wheel Festival, as well as many of their own live performances throughout Southwestern Ontario, surrounding these festivals.

Later in 2014, while playing the legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, ON, the band had sparked the interest of The Agency Group (booking agency), and it quickly resulted in the signing a deal with two of their top booking agents. The partnership has placed Them Dang Rattlers’ live show in front of many new faces, performing live for the Rogers Hometown Hockey Festivals in London, ON and St. Catherines, ON, a 2015 CMW showcase at the Dakota Tavern, opening slots for Monster Truck and Emerson Drive, and has landed the band on the 2015 Boots & Hearts Musical Festival.

With new music on the horizon, and anticipating a year full of spectacular live shows, things are on the upside for Them Dang Rattlers, and you can bet your bottom dollar that they’ll be kickin’ up some dust in your town soon.
