  • Recorded at Starring Studios, Littleborough, Lancashire in 2017. Sound engineer - Neil Scales.


Following several months of Cold Flame studio activity with sound engineer Neil Scales in the recording studio the band released a Christmas single on December 1st 2017. The song entitled 'Thoughts from the Heart' was recorded at Starring Studios in Littleborough, Lancashire with the help of Neil Scales who previously worked with the band on the 2016 acoustic album release 'One Man's Wood'. In style the feel is quite commercial and certainly upbeat helped along by a driving rhythm and a catchy repetitive guitar riff. So very much a modern blues rocker. Having recorded a demo of the song last year, going into the recording studio this summer allowed for some further fine tuning as is always the case with studio work. In addition to writing and arranging the song, Pat sings and play bass guitar with band members Rob Barnes and Phil Marke supplying the guitars and drums respectively.
