BOOK COLE FOR YOUR NEXT EVENT and send your guests home happy!

“Cole Hansen is an award-winning Singer/Songwriter and vocal powerhouse from Grand Rapids, MI whose songs are like a beacon in the night, guiding lost ships back to shore. “

“The punks, the drunks, and everyone in between loves her songs. Babies, kids, dads, and grandmas. Every age. Everyone.”

“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 familiar classics. When she sings, people tend to shut up and listen.” 

Whether you need live music for a chill, private house party, or entertainment for a larger, more formal event, look no further. I have over 40 original songs and hundreds of covers that will keep all of your guests engaged and (most importantly) happy. I generally fill up my sets with relatable, uplifting, reflective songs from a variety of decades and styles. My songs are generally ones the whole family can enjoy too. Upon request, I am happy to provide a list of cover songs currently in my rotation.

I have been writing songs for over 20 years and have over 20 years of experience playing in front of live audiences of various sizes. I have had the pleasure of performing in some amazing venues including Carnegie Hall, DeVos Performance Hall, Civic Theatre, Circle Theatre, St. Cecilia Music Center, and Listening Room to name a few. I have also performed at outdoor music festivals, art galleries, restaurants, breweries, wineries, distilleries, private parties, corporate events, …the list goes on. I’ve even busked the street corners working as an ambassador for Downtown GR. My songs have been featured in art fairs, songwriter showcases, and podcasts.

In the future, I would love to get more involved in the Minimalist/Self-Improvement circuit in the hopes that my music can help those struggling with anxiety, ADHD, and self-esteem issues to get out of their heads and into their hearts.

Thanks for checking out my music and supporting me in my musical pursuits. I couldn’t do this without your support. Please stay in touch.
