Personal

Where traditional meets today.  Cole Tomlinson offers a talent that far exceeds his age as a multi instrumentalist, singer and songwriter.  


Cole began singing and playing in church with his dad when he was 3 years old.   He was soon playing multiple instruments on his own and currently plays more than ten instruments and  writes and composes his own music.   By  12 he was singing in multiple venues  and opening for national recording artists.  He secured top spots in competitions with the Country Showdown and numerous state and local talent competitions.   
Since 2013 Cole has performed hundreds of shows each year across the Southeast and as far as Los Angeles. 


At 15  Cole began  fronting his own band and was invited to compete for the opening spot for the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam.  The same year he opened the Suwannee River Jam in Live Oak, FL.  At 16 Cole released  his first Nashville recorded song, Dirt Road Princess, which featured instrumentalists Jenee Fleenor,  Brent Mason, Jim Riley, Bill Watson, and Steve King and was recorded at NashTrax.  


 He has caught the attention of multiple producers and received numerous invitations to audition with  national television shows in Atlanta, Nashville and LA.   Cole has opened for and been featured in  events with  artists such as Alabama, Josh Turner, Alan Jackson, Billy Currington, Clay Walker, LoCash,  Sarah Evans, Montgomery Gentry, Rodney Adkins, Randy Houser, Hunter Hayes, Sammy Keshaw, Neal McCoy,  Chris Young and many more! Cole has sang at the Suwannee River Jam on three occasions,  the Florida Forrest Festival, Milltown Music Hall,  Tootsie's on Broadway,  the Crazy Bull in Macon, and multiple other famed stages and locales.  


In his spare time the high school senior enjoys playing football for his hometown team, fishing and learning new music.
