Jacob Cole is a California based independent artist. Previously fronting Saint Anne’s Place and King Cole, he has grown into a well rounded singer/songwriter and performer reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen, early Tom Petty and current artists not unlike Kurt Vile and Cass McCombs.
Making waves on the central coast as a talented young guitar player, he backed other artists for years touring across the country and internationally. Playing everywhere from Dublin Ireland, to Austin’s SXSW, to LA's Troubadour, to the Santa Barbara Bowl. Backing such artists as: Dante Elephante, Randall Sena, and Emily Wryn to name a few. As a solo artist he has graced the stage opening for artists such as; Little Wings, Gardens & Villa, Sego, David Dondero, Wild Moccasins, Jamie Drake, and Scott Hirsch of Hiss Golden Messenger.
Influenced by an eclectic mix of 60’s FM radio and hits of the 80’s, Jacob and his band incorporate it all but update the sound for today. Playing songs of heartbreak and loneliness. His sound is like a warm blanket on a cold night.
Recently coming off of his first solo effort "Cold Blue" (recorded at Certain Sparks Music/Erickson Sound Labs and released via Wiener Records and Sip Music Club) Cole continues to come into his own as a solo artist with a DIY spirit, building up a steady and dedicated following on the west coast. Grabbing attention anywhere he graces with his blend of hungry visceral energy and mature songwriting. With his backing band, each performance is a unique expression of his many different sides. Unpredictable and honest to the moment.
