Cold Blooded Sapphire is a new hard rock band featuring Eliana Blanchard, Mark Matthews, Johnny Lee Middleton, Danny Elliott, TV Marcus, & Michael Gaudreau. With a combination of seasoned rock veterans and young, fresh talent, Cold Blooded Sapphire explores a distinctive sonic landscape of metal, hard rock, and theatre of the mind lyricism.

Mark Matthews came up with the concept of Sapphire six or seven years ago. At the time, he felt the female rock audience was being underserved and marginalized by the state of popular culture.

Over beers at a Mexican restaurant, Mark, Johnny Lee Middleton (TSO/Savatage), and Danny Elliott agreed to pursue this project. Over the next five years, they wrote, tracked, and mixed the concept album “I Am Sapphire.”

Mark explains that “The storyline centers on Sapphire (Eliana Blanchard) and her journey through life. The successes, failures, heartbreak, and triumph she encounters along the way. Our Los Angeles-based lyricist TV Marcus was able to perfectly capture the moment in a meaningful way.”

Eliana Blanchard – Lead, Background Vocals
