Mark Cole

Usually seen fronting Blues band Sons of the Delta or Nu-folk and Americana band The Jigantics, Mark releases his debut solo album of eleven original tracks which bring together all of the southern USA musical influences he is best known for. A powerful, passionate vocalist, Mark also plays a pretty mean harp, honest uncluttered slide and rhythm guitar, mandolin and squeezebox and loves experimenting musically with other instruments and found objects. His many talents keep him in demand at studio sessions covering all types of roots music. Both in the studio and on stage he has played with or supported a great many artistes including Pinetop Perkins, Willie King, Kent DuChaine, Alison Moyet, Dr. Feelgood, Chris Jagger (Mick's brother), Roy Wood, Ian Dench (EMF), Steve Gibbons, Mike D'Abo, Phil Beer (Rolling Stones session man), the Gutter Brothers, Richard Thompson, Australian blues maestro Mojo Webb, guitar legend Alvin Lee (at the Glastonbury Festival in 1994) and Chicago Blues legend Eddie C. Campbell. Over the years he has received critical acclaim for his vocal performance and songwriting which has been described as having "a quality and professionalism that sets it apart from so many" with an "assured melodic delivery and ability to constantly impress" (Rock 'n' Reel magazine). He writes songs across many styles both for the acts that he plays in and other performers.
