ColdSoup's Music

In 2005, some good friends decided to start making music together. With a shared appreciation for a variety of musical styles, they have created a unique acoustic sound, full of rich harmonies, with an unexpected spin on classics from The Beatles, Elton John, Loggins and Messina, Fleetwood Mac, B.B. King, Steely Dan, and others from the 60's, 70’s and today. ColdSoup is a unique blend of ingredients coming together in good taste in an unexpected way. It’s a little blues with mandolin...a little country with conga...a little jazz with a dash of bluegrass. ColdSoup is Brad Messer on guitar/vocals, Lisa Baker on vocals, Rick Baker on mandolin/vocals, Russ Vance on keyboard/vocals and Derek Vance on bass guitar/vocals. If you're hungry for great music, try some ColdSoup!

Brad Messer
Guitar and Vocals

Brad was born in West Virginia, and raised in Ajo, AZ. He got his first guitar in 7th grade - a gift from his grandfather - and a guitar has been within his reach ever since. During an early ‘80s tour with a gospel band, Brad discovered how deeply music touches people. He also performed in a Bluegrass group called Lagurta Underpass. “It was the happiest music I had ever heard. To this day I try to sneak a little bluegrass into every set I play." Brad’s early musical influences include: Elvis, The Beatles, CSN, James Taylor and CCR.

Lisa Baker
Vocals

Growing up, Lisa wanted to be a drummer...or a Muppeteer. She played violin, clarinet, drums and piano as a child, but adds her vocal talent to ColdSoup. Lisa stakes claim to a very eclectic music library. Among her many favorite artists are Josh Groban, Steven Curtis Chapman, James Taylor, Lady Antebellum and George Benson.

Rick Baker
Mandolin and Vocals

An Arizona native, Rick played French horn, piano and guitar as a youngster and was a member of his high school jazz band. Today, Rick adds a little mandolin and vocals to ColdSoup. Rick’s early musical influences were Rick Nelson; The Jackson 5; George Benson; Earth, Wind and Fire; The Isley Brothers; ZZ Top and Motley Crew. Today, Vince Gill, James Taylor and a host of Christian artists have contributed to a warmer, gentler Rick Baker.
