Bryan Cole may not have been â€śborn in the backwoodsâ€ť as his breakout hit single, â€śIâ€™m Cominâ€™ Homeâ€ť suggests, but that doesnâ€™t mean that this amazing new country artist from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a city-slicker by any means. Passed down by three generations of family before him, you might say that â€ścountryâ€ť runs long and deep in Bryanâ€™s veins; just as the three rivers of his beloved hometown run into the waters of the Mississippi. By embracing the traditions of yesteryearsâ€™ legendary performers, while honing his own God-given vocal and guitar-playing abilities, Bryan Cole has cultivated a sound that is nothing short of INCREDIBLE.
With the release of his debut CD, Wide Open Road (Perfect Vision), Bryan showcased his signature sound to the world. Featuring soaring vocal landscapes and skillful, melody-laden guitar licks, this Chuck Ainlay (Sugarland, George Strait) produced disc garnered critical praise since its February 2010 release. Wide Open Road includes the top-notch skills of such stalwart session players as Mark Greenwood (Garth Brooks,) Jimmy Mattingly (Garth, Reba McEntire,) Steve Hinson (Randy Travis,) Michael Rojas (Lady Antebellum,) and Jimmy Nichols (Faith Hill.) Wide Open Road, which remained in the top 10 on the Roots Report Pop Country Chart for over 4 months, is a timeless collection of twelve compositions by Bryan and his longtime collaborator and manager, Michael Stover of MTS Management, as well as such heavyweight tunesmiths as Kent Blazy and Tom Paden, writers of Bryanâ€™s second single, â€śIt All Comes Back to Me.â€ť
Following up the astonishing international success of â€śIâ€™m Cominâ€™ Home,â€ť (#1 US Indie World, #8 NMW, #11 Italy, #17 Switzerland, #23 Norway, #27 Austria) Bryan rose to the top of the charts once again with â€śIt All Comes Back to Me,â€ť (#14 Cashbox, #9 MySpace Videos, #10 Yâ€™allWire.) â€śIf Only,â€ť(#4 Cashbox, US, Top 10 in Sweden, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands) and his biggest US single to date, â€śPride And the Passion,â€ť (#1 NMW, #83 Music Row, #9 Indie World, #35 Spain) which was used by the Pittsburgh Pirates in their television ads during the summer of 2011.
Now, Bryan is returning with â€śLove Doesnâ€™t Live Here,â€ť the second single from his forthcoming â€śPride And Passionâ€ť CD. The single was recorded, mixed and produced by Bryan, along with songwriter/manager Michael Stover and keyboard player Hermie Granati. The song is already receiving critical praise as â€śA power ballad at itâ€™s bestâ€¦goosebumpsâ€ť and â€śGreat vocals and a GREAT songâ€¦two thumbs up!â€ť Scheduled for January 16th release, â€śLove Doesnâ€™t Live Hereâ€ť looks to be Bryanâ€™s most-successful release yet.
While chart success has been extremely gratifying for him, Bryan finds his true rewards through the lending of his time and talents to charitable causes. Whether itâ€™s by performing at fundraising events, being a part of the Armed Forces Entertainment roster, donating tracks to charity CDs like the upcoming Joeyâ€™s Song (Epilepsy Foundation,) or by sharing proceeds from his music (proceeds from â€śIâ€™m Cominâ€™ Homeâ€ť were donated to the Animal Rescue League of Western PA) Bryan has found that success can be measured not only by his position on the charts, but also by his ability to use his gifts to help worthy causes.
In addition to his involvement with charitable enterprises, Bryan also endorses products that he PERSONALLY usesâ€”made by companies with integrity. Among these products are Hughwear clothing, Bailey hats,, GHS strings, Geezer cabinets, Voodoo Labs and Rocktron effects, and Dunlop and In-Tune guitar picks, who are currently manufacturing the Bryan Cole signature pick. Using these brands, Bryan has opened shows for some incredible artists, including Charlie Daniels, Colt Ford, Brad Paisley, Jimmy Wayne, and many others.
Timeless family tradition, tremendous God-given talent, a strong faith and commitment to charityâ€”these are the things that have endeared Bryan Cole to his devoted fans. And, at the end of the day, he is grateful for each and every one. Bryanâ€™s gratitude was rewarded by receiving 3 nominations (most of any artist) at the 2010 Pittsburgh Music Awards; a 2010 New Music Award nomination for Best New Country Artist; a 2011 New Music Award nomination for Country Breakout Artist; and a nomination for Best Country Album at the 10th Annual Independent Music Awards. Says Bryan: â€śMy fans are my lifeblood. Their love and support inspire me to be the best man I can beâ€”on and off the stage.â€ť
