Tom Cole is a larger than life, tall drink of water (6ft 6in), that can quench your thirst for country music like no one else! His rich baritone voice was made to sing cowboy songs. His approach to the music makes the listener believe every word he sings. Tom has reached into the hearts of audiences all over Western Canada and continues to touch people with his music wherever he goes. We're thrilled to start this season with such a special artist!

Tom grew up in Rose Prairie. His father ran a Community Pasture for the Forestry while raising his own cattle on their ranch beside the Beatton River. It was a natural thing to enter the rodeo circuit with his friends as a teenager, but Tom claims the only prize he ever took home was a bruise or two. After traveling to the city to do his country music recordings he decided to move to Calgary to be closer to the industry and perform with his band Cole Cole Heart. In 1992 Tom garnered "The CMAC Most Promising Artist" award and in 1994 the band took away "Group Of The Year."

After almost seven years of touring Tom moved back home and is spending more time with his wife, daughter and son. He still performs on the festival and convention circuit during the summer along with the western music circuit of Cowboy Gathering and Festivals.

Tom performs with his band, hosts country radio shows, enjoys writing and recording. He also works with long time friend Brian Salmond, an entertainer and cowboy poet from the Charlie Lake area. Tom says about their entertaining together, "Brian recites a few cowboy poems, I sing a few cowboy songs, we tell a few cowboy jokes and we all have a bunch of fun." Count on having a bunch of fun with Tom Cole and friends...Sept 24th, at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
