"Cobress Shakes Things Up at South Street"

Cobress took to the stage at South Street City Oven and Grill and wowed the crowd with what they call their Witchwave.
From the first drop of the first note everyone came up to the stage and moved to the beat through the entire set.... everyone was having fun and the music was great.
We first came across Cobress Last Year at The Ranch in Ft Myers, Fl when they opened up for He Is Legend, Letters from the Fire, and NONPOINT. They sounded great back then but they have definitely come together in the last year. - Music Madness Magazine

So much talent in one room!

“If people haven’t heard of her, they’re totally living under a rock!” says Andy Howl, co-owner of Howl Gallery/Tattoo in Fort Myers.

“It’s not a departure,” Howl says. “It’s kind of like an evolution. She’s trying to push herself forward. “She has a trajectory. She’s on her way.”

-Andy Howl, Owner of HOWL Ft Myers - Charles Runnels


With the local scene growing bigger than ever in Southwest Florida, married veterans Frankie Colt and Colin O know what it takes to bring to the table what keeps the heart beating for their fans, friends and family.

The song “Phoenix” starts out with a hard and distorted bass line coming from Colin, and than Frankie’s spectral, eminent, and lurid voice singing “Out of the ash/I see a Phoenix rising up/It was never a war/but I feel like I won.”
You can hear the heavy and vivid guitar sound match perfectly with the industrial electronics from the synth. If you like something with a subtle yet solid and intense amplified sound mixed with electronic, brilliant, and heavy tones than you will definitely want to check them out.

Colin O’Brien is also known for playing bass and singing in past local projects such as Hawks With Rockets, Tiberius and Scientist VS Werewolf. Colin is also a self taught artist and does tattoos at Howl Tattoo and Piercing in Fort Myers, Florida..
Frankie Colt is a local events coordinator and host/emcee. When she’s not making music she also does fashion design and and hosts open mics and monthly showcases with other artists and bands. - Brandan Webb

COBRESS, based out of Fort Myers, Florida, formed in 2017 and is comprised of Frankie Orion (guitar,vocals,synth), Colin Orion (bass,synth,vocals), Louie Calavera (drums,drum triggers), and Xid (guitar,synth,programming,vocals).

Cobress' sound invents a category all its own sitting somewhere between the retro synthwave/darkwave, gothic electronic rock, and pop genres, creating a powerful and current blend.

After the release of their debut EP 'Stagestomp" in 2018, Cobress' popularity continued to grow exponentially in the SouthWest Florida music scene.

The band is currently preparing the release of their second album, "Neon Royale", which will be a four-part full length, and will release late 2019. 

In addition to having a refreshing and interesting new sound, the band has an exciting and sensual live stage show with many elements. Cobress employs everything from lasers and lights to diamonds, glitter and elaborate costumes to make their unforgettable live show something to behold. 

Keep your eyes out for this up and coming group, because they are definitely on the rapid rise.
