TALE OF THE TAPE
Colt was born in the spring of 1997 in Galveston, Texas... and the world has been shitty since.
Like most, his parents split up early on, so he spent a majority of his childhood bouncing around the Southside of Houston. Obvious sob story aside, eventually Colt graduated from high school and made it his life mission to get the fuck out. So, he packed all his shit and moved to San Antonio. As luck would have it, he wasn't the only one with that plan.
Long days after long nights, Colt began to chip away at his different path. Unorthodox flows started to meld with unconventional instrumentals, and ever-so slowly, a new road started to creep up from the nothingness.
Was it all meant to be? Maybe not. But that doesn't matter. The only thing that that matters is these three words:
Colt. Fucking. Cassidy.

In the winter of 17', Colt returned to San Antonio to assist in the final stages of Andy's first project "The Blue Demo." While in the process of demoing different songs & ideas, a new project began to emerge and develop its own identity. A grimy, industrial, harrowing voice began to leak onto tracks, forming its own agendas and challenging its own boundaries. In what would later become an extended play, "Outlaw" channeled a lifetime of experiences into 5 distinct tracks. Produced entirely by Andy Ashley, "Outlaw" sets the scene for a new storyline, the rise of The Cowboy. Ultimately, it was released the same day as its sister album "The Blue Demo", on March 3rd 2018. And ever since that day, they never looked back.
The highly anticipated sequel to his first EP "Outlaw", "Saloon" pushes the story into a new direction, while maintaining the soul of its predecessor. Vulnerable, innovative, and honest, this project is a perfect showcase for the growth and versatility that Colt & Andy are capable of. Narrated by dark synthesizers and rumbling basses,"Cowboy Colt" returns to form, and continues to push what it means to be an underground artist in today's environment. Released December 21st 2018, his lyrics often express feelings of distrust towards the world. Slow-jams delineate their message of questioning oneself, while high-speed punk tracks remind you to question authority. "Saloon"challenges the nature of our choices, and eventually it finds itself in its own world.
Based on Lil Wayne's 07' hood-classic "Da Drought 3", Colt tried his hand at ripping a new asshole into familiar beats. Initially starting as a joke, the idea began to grow and show more potential. Mixtapes essentially level the playing-field, allowing production to take a backseat, while wordplay, creativity, and technical rapping skills all become the primary focus. It also allows original ideas to breathe, and use the time to grow & evolve before rushing into another album. So, recognizing it as another opportunity to push his abilities forward, the project was greenlit.
Also in the spirit of by Childish Gambino's mixtape "S T N / M T N", "Drought 33" is hosted by DJ Andy Ashley, obnoxiously piling on the sound tags as he blends different song cuts, as they slice in and out all over this project. As usual, Colt murders this mixtape, again showing his natural born aptitude for fucking shit up.
The final note in the trilogy, "D.O.A." revives the story of the cowboy for one last ride. Releasing December 1st 2019, this album demonstrates the development of talent over the past 2 years. Spanning over 52 minutes and 15 tracks, "D.O.A." is longest and most complete album from Colt so far. Staying true the messages of "Outlaw" & "Saloon", Colt finally lets loose, and shoots from the hip. The project features additional production from Austin native Sticky The Fiend, and blood-relative Vice Vincent. Finding its own voice, the album is less abrasive than its prototypes. "D.O.A." smooth melodies mask the painful thoughts that occupy Colt's mind. Swirling in a sea of influence, "D.O.A." finally marks the end of the road. Demon or Angels. Dead on Arrival. Dead or Alive.
