COLE WILLIAMS

#ThePunkEmpressofAfricanRock

"Life is a stage," says Brooklyn-born Cole Williams, 2016 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, 2017 Congo Square Rhythm Festival, 2017 Freret Street Fest and 2017 French Quarter Festival performer, with the authority of a seasoned artist, entrepreneur and educator. More than a singer/songwriter/producer/composer, Cole has expanded her repertoire to reflect an increasingly eclectic assortment of creative endeavors. Blessed with a powerful voice and superlative musical instincts, Cole is forging a “fearlessly original sound that is as eclectic as her outré fashion sense”.

 

Cole Williams' stage presence has been likened to Grace Jones with a girl next door flare bends and melds sound breaking traditional genre distinctions, making her a unique musical entity, comfortable singing rock ballads as she is reggae or a blues tracks. She is an innovative multi instrumentalist, Director with Community Works of New Orleans, an ASCAP affiliated Writer and Publisher, Recording Academy Member, Tuesday Radio Show Host of the WWOZ New Orleans Music ShowWWOZ documentary Producer/Interviewer and endorsed by Regal Tip. Her latest album Sin City, the mixtape” — is currently carried at Louisiana Music Factory in New Orleans. Cole's new single "A Change Is Gonna Come" is her 1st recording in Nola, as a New Orleans resident.
