Indie-pop songwriter Cassandra Cole has been penning songs since the age of 6. Haunting vocals convey the complexities of life and hold the audience in the story. Cole's original compositions will carry you away. Being a mother to two sets of twins, it might be easy to lose oneself and focus but not so for Cole. She uses her often complex life as a way of gripping the audience from first bar to encore. Locally, Cole performs at local venues and music hot spots such as the Aster Cafe and performed in RAW's Showcase for emerging local artists at The Pourhouse in Minneapolis. Cole appeared on the highly acclaimed television show, "Showtime at the Apollo" at the Orpheum Theatre in 2002.
Recently, she has joined forces creating "The Hive," where femme artists support other femme artists. The Hive's purpose is to provide community and opportunity for femme artists in the Twin Cities to perform, network, expand and strengthen skill sets, and to give and receive support from other female identifying artists. Our goal is diversification and inclusion of femme identifying musicians. "The Hive" made their debut to a packed house at Honey at Ginger Hop in Minneapolis and at Aster Cafe. Their next show will be at Big Turn Music Festival Feb. 22.
Influenced by people and place, Cole's music traces her journey. Growing up in California and moving from Massachusetts to the Twin Cities, her songwriting is an eclectic blend of melodic soulfulness and modern edge. City Pages describes her sound "which borrows stylistically from singer-songwriters like Annie Lennox, Tori Amos, and even Janet Jackson."-Erica Rivera. Cole just completed filming "Minnisingers" which will air summer 2019, highlighting local singer/songwriters.
Cole tries to make her music representative of herself and her generation. She loves the places that most people don't give a second glance. Simply put: if life is a rich tapestry, Cassandra Cole's music allows you to feel each thread.
