Rooted in pop, with the stripped-down instrumentation of a country troubadour, Adam Cole has always been about getting the listener as absolutely, standing-in-an-elevator close to the performance as possible. Coupling barebones production to chiseled lyrics, the results are humorous, raw and occasionally bring grown men to tears.

Adam's first album, THE END OF THE BEGINNING, showcases the stylings of brilliant guitarist and producer Ben Coker. His second outing, THE BEST OF [BOTH] WORLDS, was recorded in a single 45-minute session, consisting of 10 songs written in two weeks, and rehearsed and performed by everyone who showed up that day in his living room.

Born in a small college town in upstate New York in 1969, Adam Cole spent most of his life in Atlanta, GA, where he studied piano from the age of 6. He spent five years at Oberlin College, studying Jazz Piano with the late Neal Creque, then returned to Atlanta to make his name as a songwriter.

Since then he has continued his studies with Geoffrey Haydon and Ted Howe, while penning over 200 compositions. His music has been heard most recently on's coverage of the Monterey Jazz Festival.

Adam is also a noted author, having published two novels and two short-story collections, in addition to a book of classical music written for Ballet Pianists which was profiled in the November 2000 issue of Clavier Magazine and which sold internationally.
