The Alex Cole Band is a pop-rock trio from Orlando, Florida. The trio’s sound is a hybrid of alternative, rock, indie, jazz, and funk; all of which is channeled through Cole’s distinct pop sensibility. The trio’s textured, colorful pop is welcoming, absorbing, and contagious.
Alex Cole is the lead vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist. Cole’s lyrics are recognized for their deep emotion and are rooted in poignant melodies. Cole’s ability to intelligently explore the human heart lends itself to a connection of understanding between artist and listener; a relationship that is mutually beneficial.
Alongside Cole sits, “vocussionist” and long-time friend, Josh Padilla; otherwise known as “Tonz”.
