Cole McSween is a Christian artist dedicated to making music that is soulful and soul-filling. Steeped in gospel, funk, and soul, McSween explores themes of grace undeserved, social justice, and joy.
Based in Nashville, Cole's style range from Neo Soul to 70’s inspired yacht rock. His journey as a musician started as a drummer. Attending Georgia State University, Cole studied 5 years towards a degree in Jazz Studies. Cole quickly became a well known drummer in Atlanta, playing with artists such as The Shadowboxers, Kenny Loggins, Larkin Poe, Faye Webster, ATL Collective, and more. He has also appeared on stage with Justin Timberlake, Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Little Big Town, Reba McEntire, Hunter Hayes, Phillip Phillips, and Lucie Silvas.
While playing at Blueprint Church in Atlanta, Cole was introduced to the music of Andrae Crouch. Now his greatest influence, the late Andrae Crouch provided Cole with something he had never heard before: Christian Music that appealed both to his ears and his soul. Diving into this music, Cole decided he would find a way to mix his love for 70’s soul and funk with his love for Jesus. With all the songs finished and recorded, Cole McSween expects to release his debut EP in 2019.
