“I remember my mother buying a record, then sitting down next to the stereo with the liner notes in hand, and listening to the whole thing from start to finish, while marking her favourite tracks with a pen”, muses Australian born, Nashville-based Singer-Songwriter and instrumentalist Katie Cole.
Reading liner notes isn’t the only thing that Cole got from her mother. “My mum was essentially raising my sister and I on her own. She worked a lot of part time jobs to make ends meet, but she never complained, she just did what needed to be done to make sure we were all taken care of”, she says. This lesson in sheer determination and persistence has been a motto of Cole’s throughout her journey from a working class neighborhood in Melbourne, to her current spot as keys player for the Smashing Pumpkins's current tour, along with other breakout opportunities, such as opening slots for Glen Campbell, and a recording a duet with Kris Kristofferson (“Penelope”). “I’ve always said, ‘You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it started’”, she laughs. Cole’s grounded confidence and years of hard work, shine on her new Things That Break, Pt.I.
It features rootsy instrumentation, weaving Americana moodiness with Cole’s own brand of soaring melodies. The resulting music is both personal and profound, akin to the storytelling of Patty Griffin or Lucinda Williams. The first single “Time On My Hands” premiered by American Songwriter out now.
