Cole Randall was born on February 24th 1990 in the small, tourist town of Park Rapids, Minnesota. From an early age he showed a great interest in and knack for musical expression. Often, he would get in trouble in class for tapping pencils or singing to himself. He would make homemade drums out of coffee cans, or whatever else he could find. At one point, at about the age of 8, Cole started a band called, "Black Dragun" which featured the song, "Life Sucks" and others. He was never formally trained in music (other than one semester of theory and ear training classes in college), nor did he take lessons of any kind. His approach to music has always been intuitive and holistic and as a medium for self expression.
Many years later, Cole took up the guitar and drums and was involved in such bands as, "2 Shots Down," and "In Pursuit of Tomorrow" before embarking on his own project of songwriting and solo gigging. Currently, Cole continues to compose new material and is in the process of forming a new group in the Minneapolis area. Cole's passion is musical expression, with little bias for or predisposition toward any particular genre or style. Progressive Folk is label that is probably the closest approximation of genre that there is for Cole's compositions.
