T.Cole, formally known as Tunolase Margaret Cole, is an Afro-Irish artist born and raised in Drogheda, Co. Louth. T. Cole has always been musically inclined and has had a great passion for music from childhood. She grew up watching TV music competitions such as American Idol and X-factor, listening to the beautiful voices that were being discovered and longing to someday also sound like them.
Like Whitney Huston and many of the greats before her, T. Cole started her singing in the church choir as a little girl. However, it wasn’t until she was about 14 years old that she realised her passion for music and singing. She was drawn to Amy Winehouse’s voice which to her was strong and powerful yet possessed an elegance and aspired to be just like that. Unique.
She began practicing to strengthen her voice and improve her technique. She also joined her school choir where she learnt to develop her range and tone. Music became a living and breathing thing for T.Cole. She learnt more about music culture, discovered new artists and bands and began to meet and make personal connections with many other musicians and singers.
After years of solo training to try to improve her voice, T.Cole decided it was time she was ready to find her sound and share her voice with the world. Agreeing she needed some help to do this, she sought for a manager and signed with LJ Platform in 2019. Here she has had vocal training, development and branding consultation, writing workshops and other tools that have built her to the singer-songwriter she is today.
T.Cole has now released her first single “Thankful” which was writing during the Co-vid pandemic and working on other releases for the coming months. She aspires for her music to impact people in a very positive way by given other the encouragement and drive to creative something just as beautiful the same way she was encouraged as a little girl.
