Coal Town was formed late in 2013 by vocalist/guitarist Matt McDivitt, drummer Jared McClure, and guitarist Matt Cavallo. We started out by playing private parties, and moved onto bars. 2015 saw us play almost 40 shows at bars, carnivals, festivals, and benefits. In the beginning, we would have vocalist Jessi Boldy open for us playing an acoustic set for many shows. At the beginning of 2016 we added her as a member of the band adding the diversity of having a male and female vocalist. Also at the start of the year we brought in long time friend Tim Artman to take over the reigns on bass. We were voted Iron City Rocks Pittsburgh Music Awards Best Alternative Band in 2015. 2016 is shaping up to be a big year, we've been working on original music and recording for an upcoming album release. Also we are on pace to pass the amount of shows played in 2015. Also we filmed video of us at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver Pa of an original song "Dirt Track Anthem" for a documentary about the track. We plan to take this band as far as we can, so join us on our journey wherever it may take us!
