Jennifer Gadway and Katy Cole make up the band Decadence.
The country-rock duo of Jennifer Gadway and Katy Cole — a.k.a. Decadence — will hold a CD release party for “Love Loud” at 8 p.m. Friday, June 29 at the Copperfield Inn on Main Street in North Creek.
“Love Loud” includes the following eight songs: “Empty All Your Lead,” “Me Generation,” “All of the Cracks,” “Inner Voice,” “Bridge of Regret,” “Scream For Me,”“Love Loud,” and “Free, Right, 21.”
All songs were recorded, mixed and mastered at Pork Chop Productions in Glens Falls.
On the CD, Gadway and Cole are both featured on vocals, guitar and bass. Chris Schempp helps on lead guitar, as does Jeff Britton on drums.
Gadway and Cole formed Decadence in 1996. They started out as a cover band playing in North Creek and their local area of the Adirondacks. After a brief hiatus, they reunited with a new idea as to what Decadence would become.
Gadway describes the music this way: “A collaboration of original music began with the intention of sending a message while laying some heavy grooves and outstanding harmonies. Known as a powerhouse duo, they often classify themselves as real women singing real music.
“Their message is of the empowerment of women; to uplift and encourage them to be their best in everything they do and to give them the self confidence in who they are.”
Their debut album, “Love Loud,” features tracks with a hard driving rock sound in “Scream for Me,” to a pure country sound in “Free, Right, 21,” to a haunting mix of instrument and voice in their title track “Love Loud.”
Gadway’s strong voice and country influence mix with Cole’s blues and rock influences. They are currently finding some success playing in New York City, California and Nashville.
Flipside Light will be opening up for Decadence on June 29. There is no cover charge.
