1. Product Details

Oh you should hear my son. He plays beautifully Look at this video of him playing piano says a good friend of mine. Im thinking to myself Well of course you like whatever he does... Youre his mother But instead I say Lemme see that. I watch the video and its reeeeally lovely - I am genuinely impressed and ask Whats the song hes playing She explains that its his own composition and then she tells me about her son Cole. Cole is a self-taught artist and musician. He just picks up an instrument and plays it. There was an attempt at music lessons when he was a child but they came to an abrupt end when the piano teacher proclaimed Cole was unable to be taught. Cole has a form of autism called Aspergers Syndrome. Working with him on this record has been a revelatory experience observing how it affects his ability to write and perform his songs both negatively and positively. After my first chat with his mom about his music Cole and I exchanged contact info. Over the next few years he sent me his songs - old demos roughly recorded piano pieces and full-realized songs. He played wrote and recorded all the instruments. I was impressed with the range of his music his smart lyrics and unaffected vocals. I admire that he is not afraid to create from a position of vulnerability and is willing to let the listener hear it - which is something I always struggle with. When Joyful Noise invited me to curate an album for their White Label Series I felt this would be an opportunity to share Coles music. He and I worked with Mike Brivadsky at Russian Recording in Bloomington IN giving sonic cohesion to this collection of dark birds. Drummer Ben Lumsdaine replaced Coles computer beats with a human groove and my friend Jocelyn Hatch played some gorgeous viola. Im so pleased to share Coles music with a wider audience... an audience other than just a proud mother.
