"All the lives we could live, all the people we will never know, never will be, they are everywhere. That is what the world is." When two worlds collide and the dream is born there is magic.
Canadian born and Liverpool raised Andrew Cole with his debut release Why We Wonder brings that magic to life, with powerful songs, and "a voice that most singers would die for" (Award winning singer songwriter Tom Cochrane).
A young man with dreams bigger than his years and whimsical, infectious humour, which can only be born from living in Liverpool England, as a young boy and the gentle nature that is truly Canadian. Andrew Cole has taken those dreams and transformed them into a vision that is uniquely his own!
Armed with a group of the most talented artists to hit the stage, (Kevin Hearn - Bare Naked Ladies, Lou Reed, Colin Cripps - C Dion, Blue Rodeo, Kevin Bright - Norah Jones, Lyle Molzan - Jann Arden Gary Craig - Anne Murray, Paul McCartney's Mellotron and the brilliant production skills of Bill Bell (Tom Cochrane, Jason Mraz, Justin Nozuka) his debut release promises to entertain and move you.
His first single and video ( by award winning director Andrew MacNaughtan) "Out of Time" features the unique sound that symbolizes the true nature of the influences that Andrew Cole possesses. The sound of the Mellotron, (made famous by the Beatles) and the dynamite and powerful voice and lyrics of Andrew Cole are catchy and draw you in at first listen.
With lush landscapes of sound and imagery, songs like All You Need, My Lovely, This Lullaby, Just you Care evoke the passion and longing, the winning and losing and the finding of ones self in a world that can try to always bring you down . The lovely and self effacing Dead Roses, with the enormous talent of Kathleen Edwards (backing vocals) holds you in a place that we have all been now and again, wondering and wanting only for a moment. Charming and infectious Birds of A Feather, it is the smile on the face of this debut CD, I dare you not to!
Out of My Head, a lovely interpretation (penned by Tom Cochrane) with guest vocals by a Northern Star Tom Cochrane. Up To You, a promise to never give up and follow the idea of the dream ….. and the powerful and honest We Must Win…..or we shall certainly lose.
For the ways in which we wonder!
