Read Southall Band with Kolby Cooper
Add to Calendar
In 2015, the local songwriting scene of Stillwater, OK brought together four like-minded individuals from completely different background who wanted nothing more than to play music. Read Southall became the talk of Oklahoma after the release of his acoustic album “Six String Sorrow” in 2015 that accumulated 8 million streams in just 3 years. In 2016, Read Southall decided that a group effort was the way to proceed with his fellow band mates and the Read Southall Band officially came to light. They released “Borrowed Time” in the spring of 2017 which featured singles like “Don’t Tell Me” and “Why”, which made it inside the Top 10 on several streaming charts.
The Read Southall Band began to tour full time in 2018, leading to the release of “Live at Tower Theatre” in December.
2019 is set to be a huge year for the Oklahoma rock ’n' roll quartet as they tour all over the USA with several acts like Whiskey Myers and Koe Wetzel.
Kolby Cooper, born and raised in Palestine, TX, grew up riding shotgun in his dad’s cow truck, which is where he first discovered the artists that would come to be his biggest musical influences (Waylon Jennings, Chris Ledoux, Cross Canadian Ragweed and a few others). He picked up a guitar around the age of 12 and played his first show at the age of 14. Only four short months after he graduated from Cayuga High School, he was in the studio working on his first project (Vol. 1). The five song EP contained two top 5 singles (“It Ain’t Me” and “Every Single Kiss”). He recently released a brand new single (“Tired”) that reached number 3 on the chart. He’s preparing to release a full length album in two parts called Good Ones Never Last. The album includes songs about being in love, losing a loved one, and everything in between. You can find all of Kolby’s show dates on any social media platform and on Bands in Town (www.bandsintown.com) to keep up with him and his guys!
