“She’ll make you laugh, cry, and leave feeling better about yourself”

Cole Hansen is a singer/songwriter and vocal powerhouse from Grand Rapids, MI. She was brought up on a strange mixture of car show oldies, obscure classic rock and blues, as well as classic country, cabaret, cheesy children’s songs, and church hymns. Most of Cole’s material fits best into the Americana-Roots or Folk genres, but she prides herself on being a versatile artist with eclectic tastes. As a music major, Cole studied classical vocal technique and has had the honor of performing with many different Michigan groups including the Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble, the Grand Rapids Symphony Chorus, and even a 6-piece acapella Madrigal chorus. After music school, Cole performed with Indie Rock band Drawing Monsters and later with Award-winning Atmospheric Americana band Bello Spark.

Cole made her theatrical debut in Fall 2019 when she was cast as one of eight performers in “Ring of Fire,” the Johnny Cash musical at Grand Rapids Civic Theater. Despite the pandemic, and to her fans’ delight, Cole dropped her long-awaited debut album, “Just In Case” in March, 2020. In Summer 2021, she appeared in Circle Theatre Grand Rapids’ production, “Free Bird: Classic Rock of the ’70s.” Most recently, Cole made her opera debut in Opera Grand Rapids’ production of Turandot. Cole is excited to share her sophomore album, “Vote for Love” with the world on Nov 6th, 2022, which will be available on all streaming/download platforms. She has plans to start album #3 in late November. Catch Cole’s album release show Nov 6th at Midtown GR in Grand Rapids (formerly Listening Room).
