Louis Cole is a Los Angeles based singer songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalists. Celebrated as one of the world's most future-sonic-funk drummers and co-founder of KNOWER, his mission is "to create deep feelings through music." Cole has proudly been DIY to date, amassing millions of views with his viral videos like ‘Bank Account', and arrives with his third album debut ‘Time' out now on Brainfeeder.
‘Time' is – a casual but addictive LP, with a blend of quickfire, hook-laden electro-funk bullets and wistful, soft-focus balladry – and it's compelling. "A lot of it is little thoughts, that I made into big songs… blasts of inspiration that I was lucky enough to receive."
Louis's new album features his friend Thundercat (with whom he worked on "Drunk" co-writing ‘Bus In The Streets' and ‘Jameel's Space Ride') who returns the favour, contributing lead vocals on ‘Tunnels In The Air'. KNOWER's Genevieve Artadi, and acclaimed jazz pianist and experimental composer Brad Mehldau also pop up on ‘When You're Ugly' and ‘Real Life' respectively. Furthermore, ‘Last Time You Went Away' features a 23-piece string orchestra – the Rochester Stringz from Eastman School of Music.
Known for presenting a show that you will never forget, catch Louis Cole's ‘Time' tour with solo dates, or his unforgettable 18-piece brass band show in the US, EU, and Asia.
