As part of our musician’s series on Your Life Matters we would like to welcome Bryan Cole. Bryan hails from Western Pennsylvania among the ghosts of a former steel town and blue-collar community. He began his love for music at the age of seven, where he performed in front of ten thousand people. His childhood was no different than any other young man; with the exception that Bryan was gifted with truly exceptional vocal and musical abilities. He knew very early on what his life calling was and he would approach this calling with the utmost tenacity, drive and spirit.

Today’s Country Magazine just wrote:

Being an artist in today’s country music format takes more than just talent. There are song selection/writing aspects, business approaches, charity work that defines your character, etc… Bryan Cole is a great example of the total package. His numerous efforts with charity as well as his ability to take a great song and put his crisp voice and delivery on it.

Bryan Cole’s music career began at the age of seven, where he performed in and around his home town. Throughout his childhood and teenage years, Bryan performed in many local bands and winning over music fans with his tremendous talent and electrifying stage presence. In 2003, went to Nashville to begin networking and laying the foundation for his solo career in Country Music. Bryan was introduced to award winning producer Chuck Ainlay through a mutual friend. Chuck’s credits include George Strait, Sugarland, Vince Gill, Dixie Chicks, etc. Bryan met Tom Paden who agreed to help find the right material for Bryan’s debut album. Paden had written a song with Kent Blazy(Garth Brooks) that he felt would be perfect for Bryan. Bryan called on musician friends Mark Greenwood (bass player Garth Brooks), Jimmy Mattingly (fiddle for Garth Brooks, Reba, Dolly Parton, etc), Steve Hinson (pedal steel player for Randy Travis, Josh Turner), Michael Stover (drummer/singer for Angelspeak) and session keyboardists Michael Rojas and Jimmy Nichols (Faith Hill). Bryan’s debut album “Wide Open Road” is a fantastic mix of stellar musicianship, amazing vocals, great songs and top-notch production. Bryan’s fan base boasts impressive numbers that are growing daily worldwide. Bryan’s talents have also afforded him the ability to secure endorsement deals with Wrangler, GHS Strings, Geezer Cabinets, Rocktron, In-Tune Guitar Pics and more. He is active in several charities including Animal Rescue League, Rescue Ink and the Amy Roloff Foundation. Bryan’s love for animals sparked a brand new song called “I’m Comin’ Home”, he co-wrote with award winning songwriter Michael Stover. The song’s fantastic message of “a second chance at life” and rising above hardships is already begun to make strong waves with its uplifting message of hope. Wide Open Road is released on Perfect Vision Records and is available through all major online retailers and selected retail locations.
