Colossal Boss

Colossal Boss is the best hard drivin' rock band in Seattle, Washington, USA. Big time rock and roll with soul, Colossal Boss is a band to be reckoned with. Rock and roll baby!

New music, new babies!


We’re still alive. We’ve been busy behind the scenes. Life is crazy and seems to just be moving faster and faster. We’d like to welcome Emmett, Fraser’s new baby boy to the family! He was born with a beard and a leather jacket somehow. He already likes riding motorcycles. He’s gonna do great! He’s happy and healthy and we look forward to getting to know him. Congratulations!

Steven also welcomed his second baby girl into the world in March, Ruby. She’s a doobie! She’s also happy and healthy and is already testing out her pipes by crying as loud as she can for that sweet mother’s milk. in the middle of the night. Welcome to the world Ruby!

Besides bringing new babies into the world, we’re still writing and creating music. We haven’t played many shows as of late but we aim to change that. We have a couple shows lined up for the summer, one being at the awesome Whaling Days Festival in Silverdale, WA. We look forward to closing out the event on Sunday July 28 3-5pm.

We have two new songs being finalized for your listening pleasure ‘Fool’ and ‘Jellybean’ that we can’t wait to share with you. We flew our producer and friend Brandon Blaise from Soundbox Studio out here to Seattle in March to record with us for the first time. It was a magical session and the songs sound amazing! We will be filming two new videos for these songs very very soon and releasing the singles.

See you soon!


New Tunes!

We are wrapping up our new recording this month and we can't wait to share what we've made with you all! Below is one of our original tunes 'Thinkin' Drinkin' that we wrote and performed acoustically. (Steven on harp and vox, Ted on guitar) We're hoping to have a CD release party late summer. In the meantime, we have a few big shows coming up, including another return to the badlands where we will be rocking The Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, SD for the annual motorcycle rally. We will see you all soon!

Doin' work

Studio X is just amazing and we have had an absolute blast recording our new music here. Thank you Justin and Reed!  

All three days of tracking went great! We were able to get 6 songs recorded and we even had enough time left over to enjoy a few brews. (Or two) This experience has been amazing. Sharing these walls with the legends of the past has been an honor and we know that the rock gods will be pleased with the tunes we put together on this collection of songs. The gear we used:

Ted, guitars: Paul Reed Smith guitar through an Orange AD30 combo amp

Fraser, bass: Fender Jazz Bass through a Fender Vintage Bassman

Cory, drums: A big ass fucking Ludwig

Steven, vocals, harmonica: Fender Deluxe Combo Amp, and a bunch of microphones

Local producer, Justin Armstrong produced all the tracks. A lot of fun was had and a lot of beer was consumed. Git to WORK!


Straight forward, no gimmicks rock n' roll! We have a few more things to record and then we will set this music free into the world!


'No Man's Slave' Music Video

Recorded a little over a year ago, 'No Man's Slave' was our first video for our debut EP. It was an absolute blast to film and we had a bunch of our friends make cameo appearances throughout. It's fun and rowdy, just like us! Thanks to filmmaker Kilii Fish and all of our friends who made this a fun shoot.

It's the story of the pizza man and how he just can't get a break. Everyone along the way messes with him in some way. Our drummer Cory used to deliver pizza and he'd always share his crazy stories with us at band practices. You just never know what's going to happen when they open the door.

The live version of 'No Man's Slave' below was filmed by our friend Mike Martin at The Tractor Tavern in Seattle, WA. It was our first time rocking the joint and we had a blast!

We love rocking live for the good people who just want to have a good time. Ain't nothing wrong with that right!?

We will be recording at Studio X in Seattle, this weekend. We hope to get a new video out soon that will go with our new music to all of you. We will keep you posted!

NWCZ radio out of Tacoma, WA, was kind enough to invite us into the studio and let us jam on our tune, Long Way Down as well as play American Boy and No Man's Slave. We chatted with Darrell and his crew and had a fun time. Thanks Darrell for keeping local music alive! Hear the interview HERE
