With a unique and powerful voice, Cole’s music translates into a powerful vision that only he alone could have. His cocky charisma and infectious humour draw you in from first listen. Born in Toronto and raised in Liverpool, Andrew has combined his Canadian roots and Brit rock sensibility into something truly his own. Andrew Cole doesn’t mince words about his choice of 'Why We Wonder' as the title of his independent debut record produced by Bill Bell (Jason Mraz, Tom Cochrane, Justin Nozuka). “Anyone who knows me will say I’m the biggest worrier ever. I analyze everything; especially those tiny intricacies that happen everyday that are so hard to even name because they’re so small, but it’s positive worrying,” he adds. A product of following his parents to Liverpool, Wales, Las Vegas, Toronto and Florida and rarely having had an opportunity to set down roots. More importantly, it’s the driving force behind the development of his unique voice and lyrical sense. Although there are shades of David Gray and The Beatles haunting the edges of his voice and arrangements, Cole’s songs and sound are entirely unique: From ‘My Lovely’, which begins as a campfire love song and mutates into a torrent of raging guitars that come on like a swift summer storm and pass just as quickly; to his brutally frank expressions of the dangers of time running out before love on lead single, ‘Out Of Time’; through to‘Dead Roses’, a country tinged ballad inspired by a simple emotional reaction to a women’s perfume and featuring backing vocals by Kathleen Edwards.
Most recently Andrew completed working on 'VOICES AT 4AM' a 2 song EP that guests Tom Cochrane on vocals, with Rusty Anderson on guitar (Paul McCartney), Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp, Bob Seger, Elton John, John Fogerty, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Meat Loaf, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Jon Bon Jovi) on drums, Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) on bass, and a guitar cameo by Alex Lifeson of RUSH. The project was produced by Chris Potter most known for his work as long-term collaborator and producer of The Verve and Richard Ashcroft. Among the other artists that Potter has worked with include The Clash, Mick Jagger, and Paul McCartney.
