“As a live musician, it’s really amazing to experience this dimension of sound. As if being a drummer isn’t fun enough already, now I have my magical turtle shell of bass to take me higher. Talk about focused and well thought out…. I become a part of every song I play and listen to. The practical application of it is nothing short of amazing. It’s a revolution for the deaf community. It’s a game changer for the engineer that’s stuck in a hotel room or tour bus and has to make that deadline. From career musicians to the most avid of gamers, SUBPAC is for everyone. Welcome to the future.”

 


Eddie Cole, the Long Beach-based singer, songwriter, and composer, has moved with the inertia and traveled light years in his career to get to where he is now.

Cole’s multi-instrumental talent has lent him many opportunities to work with as well as perform and tour with the likes of Nas, Mapei, and currently, musical director for Alina Baraz and Galimatias. In addition to working as a touring musician, Cole also had the opportunity to compose and perform for the worldwide theatrical magic show The Illusionists. Read More...

With family as a major influence on his work, Cole has followed in the footsteps of his family’s musical legacy that includes: his great-uncle and legendary jazz singer and pianist Nat King Cole (“I admire his natural, organic, but extremely polished presentation,” says Cole. “The balancing act of honestly expressing yourself and putting on a great show are the signs of greatness to me. To share his blood is a gift I have and always will cherish… I didn’t have a choice.”); his father Eddie Cole Sr., who has worked with the likes of Ray Charles, Chaka Khan, and Natalie Cole; and his mother, Laura Cole, an opera singer, multi-instrumentalist, and music teacher.

With all of these experiences and influences shaping his work, Cole learned how to produce music and with that knowledge, began writing, recording, and performing his own music, including his recently released album Inertia: The Art of Motion.

Following The Inertia LP, Eddie plans on releasing a new EP including an homage to his aunt Natalie Cole and the follow up to the Inertia LP in 2017. Stay tuned for more adventures by this multi-talented forward thinker.
