The quality of your life is determined by the quality of the company you keep. And,everybody wants to keep cool company. So, perhaps there’s no more appropriate name for a band whose music seems to be universally enjoyed.
Cool Company is an independent Future R&B duo comprised of dynamic vocalist, Cool Yan, and multi-instrumentalist/producer, Fat Matt. By seamlessly blending elements of Hip-Hop, R&B, Pop, Funk and Soul, Cool Company has been able to strike a remarkable balance between mellow serenades and funkified grooves. And, with millions of streams on Spotify, the band is just starting to get the attention they deserve.
New Jersey natives, Yan and Matt both discovered a passion for music at notably young ages. While Yan was marveling at his hard-earned Panasonic shelf stereo system, Matt was listening to Stevie Wonder and Pure Funk compilations with his father.
Influenced by artists like Outkast, Frank Ocean, and Childish Gambino, Cool Company has been writing non-stop since dropping their album Slice of Paradise in October of
2016. The band’s The Dose Pt. 1 EP is slated for release in 2018, with a Pt. 2 arriving in 2019, which find Yan and Matt expanding their newfound musical territory.
“I think our fans will be pleasantly surprised by the new direction without being too nostalgic for our old sounds,” shares Yan.
“We always make sure to hold ourselves to the same bar of catchiness and accessibility even while exploring new aural territories. We strive to be genre innovators.”
