Today, singer-songwriter Courtney Cole is releasing her new 4-track EP, “Earthquake.” The EP plays like a collection of sonic diary entries, chronicling Cole’s journey of self-discovery as she tackles what it means to find power and trust within oneself. “It’s about choosing joy in the midst of pain and love in the midst of uncertainty. Finding out who you truly are in the process.”
Cole, a native of Mandeville, Louisiana grew up singing in church and at talent shows. She also dabbled in theater, acting and producing. For high school Cole attended a creative arts institute before moving to Nashville for college at Belmont University. There she studied music and immersed herself in the music scene. Learning to write her own music, Cole finds inspiration from events happening in her own life. Her songs are honest, passionate, and self-aware.
Moving forward, Cole sees herself exploring and expanding her sound. “When I recorded “Spiritual,” We stripped everything down. It was like hitting the reset button after I had released past music with more of a country sound. Now, I am slowly rebuilding and reeling honing in on what I want it all to feel like rather than sound like,” said Cole. For new artists, she advises to always follow your mission, not a deal or manager’s opinion.
