Brad Cole - Live@210
Sun, April 23, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM CDT
The songs of Brad Cole address the ups and downs of the human condition with both wit and raw insight. His passionate and distinctive delivery of roots-based folk music, woven with the grit and groove of old school bossa and rhythm & blues moves the listener’s soul in a direction that is unexpected, yet perfectly familiar.
Cole has been a fixture on the Chicago music scene for years, performing along side artists that make up the fabric of the city’s musical legacy such as Uncle Tupelo and the Smashing Pumpkins. Brad led several Chicago based bands including Treatment, The Second Story and toured with NYC-based The Subscribers. Along with singer-songwriter Jeff Libman, he is co-founder of the acoustic/soul collective known as Check With Lucy. He was also a longtime member of Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music’s monthly “Songwriters Forum”. Brad continues this collaborative acoustic tradition with his acclaimed songwriters performance series, “Acoustic Circus”.
