Event SummaryHi! It's Coles.
I've been playing piano for 21 years and guitar for 8. Singing since I can remember.
Performing mostly jazz growing up, I started writing songs in 2005, the same year I made my first record, Coles Whalen - EP. (Creative title, isn't it?) Then I set off in a camper to 'tour the US.'
I made up most of what that means and I learned a lot along the way. A little luck, lots of help and sheer refusal to stop I guess all got me to this year and the release of my 5th record called "I Wrote This for You." I picked up mandolin and accordion while making this record! Fell in love with both. We will be touring the record all year, playing the new songs so please, come check out a show!
"I Wrote This for You" has been a long time coming and I can't wait for you to hear it. THANK YOU, as always - again and again - for taking the time to listen and support. You are appreciated. See you all soon!
