Andrew grew up in Maine and now lives in New York. Drawing inspiration from his own experiences as well as books, articles and art, Cole’s songs tell vivid stories about people living ordinary and extraordinary moments in their lives - from racing a hurricane to working on an apple farm.

Some musicians who inspire him are Beck, Brandi Carlile, JJ Grey, Jim James, Neil Young, Slaid Cleaves, Steve Earle, Susan Tedeschi (and the list goes on and on).

In addition to playing music, Cole is an avid saltwater fisherman, hiker and homebrewer.  He has used American grown bravo hops in many tasty brews, which is how the band name - The Bravo Hops - was born.
