Lyrically rich and hard hitting with their instrumentation, Coldwater Road gives folk music a reason to dance. Waltzing between love songs and foot-stomping murder ballads, Coldwater Road has a story for everyone. Their style reaches across Folk, Americana, Rock, and Country, and live performances are described as The Avett Brothers meets Paul Simon and Dawes. Started by frontman Patrick Spencer, the band has evolved into a five-piece, adding rich harmonies and a wealth of musical textures; sometimes gritty and acoustic, and others dynamic, layered, and full of melody.

From a cabin in the snow, Winter 2013 brought the release of their debut recording Street Side, an honest and raw album tracked live off the floor that showcases the acoustic core from which the band was born. Coldwater Road were participants in the 2013 Peak Performance Project; have performed across the Canadian Railway as part of the VIA Rail Artist on Board program; have completed numerous tours throughout Western Canada, and have showcased in Los Angeles and New York City. In 2015 they were recipients of the SFU LAUNCH grant, and a FACTOR demo grant in 2016. The band released their second studio EP, Horses and Guns and Trucks, in June 2016, following their debut release The Woods, in 2014. In 2017 the band toured BC and Alberta

Coldwater Road features Patrick Spencer (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica), Charles Wesley (electric guitar, banjo and vocals) and Max Kashetsky (keys and vocals). Rhythm players include Connor Brooks, Sam MacKinnon and Stuart Alves.
