Americana Pop Songbird

“a dynamic and engaging performer that charms audiences wherever she goes.”

-Nicholas James Thomasma, Singer/Songwriter, FARM Board Member

Real, Honest Americana Pop

Cole Hansen is a classically-trained, award-winning Singer/Songwriter from Grand Rapids, MI. As the daughter of a small engine repairman and a daycare provider, Cole was brought up on a strange mixture of obscure classic rock, classic country, and lots of cheesy children’s songs. Most of Cole’s material fits best into the Americana or New Folk genres, but she prides herself on being a versatile artist with eclectic taste. As a music major, Cole studied classical vocal technique and performed with many different Michigan groups including the award-winning Atmospheric Americana band Bello Spark and Shades of Blue. She even performed with a 6-piece acapella English Madrigal chorus (cheers to you if you know what the heck that is). From jazz to classical, folk to blues, classic country to modern rock, Cole’s unique voice is powerful and commanding one minute, sweet and pure the next. Her original songs are whimsical yet honest, and she has a knack for re-imagining the classics. When she sings, people listen.

Cole made her theatrical debut last Fall when she was cast as one of eight performers in “Ring of Fire,” the Johnny Cash musical at Grand Rapids Civic Theater. Sadly, due to covid-19, all of Cole’s remaining performances for 2020 were cancelled. Despite the pandemic, Cole dropped her first solo album, “Just In Case” back at the end of March. It is available for digital purchase/download everywhere you buy music online. Buy or stream it today!
