COLES WHALEN ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD AND TOUR

DENVER NATIVE COLES WHALEN ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD AND TOUR

Coles Whalen is a woman who makes things happen. When she wanted to jumpstart her music career she bought a pickup truck, toured the country and sold CDs out of the back. Then, when opportunity knocked and kept knocking, she picked up her guitar to open for artists like Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Rufus Wainwright, and yes, even Akon in Montreal, Nashville, Denver, and all points in between.

But it isn’t just sheer will that’s gotten Whalen to where she is today. Her homespun blend of bluesy, swampy folk has something to do with it. On “Wake Up Easy” Whalen breezily sings, メYou’re making coffee, making the bed / I kind of feel like making something else instead.モ A languorous piano, creaking washboard and softly shaken percussion help create a mood of sleepy-eyed seduction. The first single, “Cannonball,” is a mix of wistful pop, folk and rock stitched together by Coles’ distinctive vocals over driving loops and chiming guitar riffs.

A backwoods coquette, Whalen knows how to woo her listeners. Make sure you stay on the getting side with this one.Whalen’s newest release was written and recorded in Nashville with Australian Producer Michael Flanders, but the sound of the record is anything but traditional country. - Kate B, Ourstage Colorado

The Nationwide Tour in support of her record I Wrote This For You kicks off February 25th at Casselman’s Bar and Venue in Denver and then onward to venues throughout the United States and Canada. Cannonball will be available on iTunes January, 2012. For more information on Coles Whalen, please visit www.coleswhalen.com
