‘Cold’ Is Hot for BMI Pop Award Winners Crossfade

Posted in News on July 11, 2006
Columbia, S.C., hard rock trio Crossfade was recently presented with a BMI Pop Award for their hit "Cold," one of the 50 most performed BMI pop songs of the past year. The song was written by lead singer Ed Sloan, who joined band members Mitch James and James Branham at the BMI Los Angeles office to receive their plaques from Writer/Publisher Relations executives Myles Lewis and Joe Maggini. Crossfade was on tour at the time and unable to attend the black-tie ceremony last May.

Formerly called the Nothing, Crossfade has developed into something truly extraordinary. The group attracted the interest of Los Angeles A&R company Taxi and Los Angeles promoter Chris Long (who took over as manager) in March 2002, and have since secured a record deal with Earshot Records, a subsidiary of Columbia Records. The band will be releasing their new CD, Falling Away, on August 29, with the first single "Invincible" already hitting rock radio.
