FOLK: Folk Pop, POP: Beatles-pop
A Colorado native, Coles Whalen began singing professionally at the age of 7. As a member of The Colorado Children's Chorale's elite National Touring Choir, she had already toured every region of the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, and China before she turned 14.
When Coles outgrew the Children's Chorale she studied jazz piano as well as banjo and guitar with Drew Morell. She played for tips in small clubs where she wasn't allowed anywhere except on stage because she was too young to drink. Eventually she earned an invitation to the USC Thornton School of Music as a Jazz Studies major.
At USC, Coles studied piano and voice with Carmen Bradford, Tierney Sutton and Anne Farnsworth, but she knew she had more to offer than just a voice and an instrument. Her real interest was composition.
In 2000, Coles was commissioned to write an original piece for a nationally distributed educational video. The video, titled "In Your Own Way," features Coles Whalen's song "The Game of Life" and has sold over 1,000 copies. The success of her first release spawned a prolific song writing career that continues today.
In 2001, Coles formed the guitar band WHALEN and the group became regulars in the LA Club Scene, opening for Big Bang Sunday (Ivan Neville) at the Viper Room. But needing to express herself in more intimate ways, Coles struck out on a solo career in 2003. Teaming up with producer Loren Ellis and engineer Keith Armstrong, Coles released a self titled EP, left LA with her guitar and piano, and hasn't looked back. She performs all over the western United States, sometimes 24 shows a month.
Drawing influence from blues and jazz, Coles Whalen spins a new kind of folk rock thread. With a timeless voice, she sings lyrics that connect, that somehow are about you. Her self titled EP is selling fast, available at most Borders locations and at her live shows. A full length album is due out early in 2005. Discover this hot new singer/songwriter before everyone else does. Then you can say... I saw her when.
