There are those who sing and play the blues, and then there are those who live the blues. Guitar slingers can be found on street corners in just about any city. The heartache of a wailing harp pours from the doorways of countless smoky bars. Life is hard. The blues are everywhere. So then, what makes bluesman Cole Fonseca so special? The fact is, his music truly is a reflection of his life, and his story is like none you have ever heard.
For 2013, Cole Fonscea has signed with an independent/major label, and is exclusively managed and booked by Consonant Music. He will be recording his first major album, which will be released for mass distribution across the globe. The album will be produced by one of the greatest producers of all time, Toby Wright. Toby has worked with countless multi-platinum acts like Metallica, Korn, Alice in Chains, and Chris Whitley, to name a few. It was Cole’s modern edge, and what he’s done with the blues, that piqued Toby’s interest. Bands like The Black Keys and Jack White have brought the Blues to the forefront of today’s generation. Cole Fonseca is next in line. He is truly an inspiration. That is what separates him from most artists. Seeing and hearing him play, after hearing his story, is simply unforgettable.
