In the past year, KOLE has performed at The Shrine and The Palladium, alongside Cassian (opening for Rufus du Sol) and SNBRN (opening for Gryffin).
KOLE has been featured on Billboard, We Found New Music, Buzzfeed, and Musical Heartbeat. She was added to the Rhythm and Groove by DJ TARO Spotify editorial playlist and Apple Dance Hits on Apple music.
Describing the inspiration behind “Shiitake”, KOLE expressed “I was feeling frustrated with the 'shit talking' culture that permeates our lives. I passed the Hollywood Bowl on the way to a session, and the lyric "Imma pack a bowl in Hollywood" came to me, and thus, Shiitake was born. It's an anthem for pursuing your dreams and ignoring the naysayers.”
