Andrew Cole hails from Maine where he grew up listening to his parents’ records of local singer-songwriters like David Mallett and Gordon Bok.
Cole went on to hear and see a wide range of artists from Neil Young to Ravi Coltrane, which inspired him to begin writing his own music starting in his late teens. Now living in New York, Cole has released three albums with his band (Andrew Cole & The Bravo Hops): Out of the Sunshine (2014), Everything Is Glass (2015) and River Talk (2017). Their songs tell vivid stories set to an original blues & country infused rock sound. Cole and the band donate a portion of their music sales and gig proceeds to deserving non-profits that improve children's lives with music and education. In addition to music, Cole is an avid saltwater fisherman and a (still learning) homebrewer. www.acoleandthehops.com.
