The moment a 5 year old Lia Cole eagerly learned the chords G and C to pull off “You Are My Sunshine” on the acoustic guitar, music became her heart and soul. In typical Lia Cole fashion, she ended that same home video with a resounding soulful riff overtop a hard hitting power chord, that would give the world insight into her undying talent to create her own sound.
With deep soulful influences ranging from Bill Withers to Etta James, combined with the young sound of pop icons like Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber, the Lia Cole sound captivates audiences and stands completely on its own. Her intimate high quality online acoustic video releases will have you in awe with her musicality, and laughing along with her unapologetic behind the scenes bloopers. Representing St. Albert, AB worldwide, this award-winning young songwriter has become Canada’s up and coming act to watch.
Keep up with Ms. Cole on social media by following @LiaColeMusic for daily updates, weekly video releases, and a real time sneak peek into the life of a Pop Star who’s hard core dedicated fan base continues to explode. Tune in today, and see what all the fuss is about.
