Andrew grew up in Maine and now lives in New York. He has been writing songs and playing acoustic guitar for over 20 years. 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 events - from racing a hurricane to working on an apple farm to meeting the girl of their dreams. Some musicians who inspire him are Beck, JJ Grey, Jim James, John McCauley (Deer Tick), Neil Young, Ray LaMontagne, Slaid Cleaves, Steve Earle, Susan Tedeschi (and the list goes on and on).
In addition to playing music, Cole is an avid saltwater fisherman and homebrewer. He has used American grown bravo hops in many tasty brews, which is how the band name - The Bravo Hops - was born.
