New Album Coming Soon

We’ve partnered with Pledge Music give you the opportunity to be a part of the release process.


The Cole Trains are an Americana Rock/Country band hailing out of Safford, Arizona.

Being immersed in the Texas Country/Red Dirt scene, co-front men ,TJ Taylor and Shane Britt, have grown to be two very unique story tellers. They believe they have a responsibility to create songs that relate to listeners on a deep and real level. It is easy to tell that  Shane & TJ are innate songsmiths that have Rock & Roll in their bones and Red Dirt in their blood. 

The Cole Trains have shared the stage with acts like Robert Earl Keen, Turnpike Troubadours, American Aquarium, The Departed, Jason Boland, Roger Creager and Josh Abbott  as well as other local bands in Arizona.

The Cole Trains first album titled "Six Hundred & Thirteen" released in October 2013 made a lot of waves. It shares a mix of high energy songs to lyrical ballads and everything in between. Since then, they have released a "live" album at their stomping grounds, The Rockbar, which is available now as a CD/DVD combo.

Today, The Cole Trains have really molded their sound into something very special. With new band members, Patrick James and Tad Jacobson, the music is tight and new songs are flowing like the never before. Stay tuned for big things coming from these guys in 2018.
