Alexis Cole

Velvet-voiced jazz vocalist Alexis Cole is cited as ‘a rising star in the jazz world’ by Hot House Magazine. She has been featured on NBC’s NY Morning Show and in magazines Time Out NY, Downbeat, Jazz Times, Swing Journal, All About Jazz and many more. Her five releases as a leader can be heard on jazz radio stations around the world. Cole can often be seen performing both internationally and in NYC’s top venues, Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Smoke, The Oak Room, The Kitano and others. Jazz Weekly calls Cole’s latest release The Greatest Gift, ‘A gift to mankind,’ and Cashbox Magazine says that ‘Cole’s soulful voice resonates long after the album has played its final notes.’ The Greatest Gift on Motema Music is a benefit project for World Bicycle Relief, empowering people in the world’s poorest countries through The Power of Bicycles. Her other 2009 release Someday My Prince Will Come on Venus Records in Japan is a collection of Disney love songs featuring the acclaimed pianist Fred Hersch. Also known as Staff Sergeant Cole, Alexis recently became the lead vocalist with the West Point Jazz Knights Big Band after finishing basic training in Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri. Her earlier recordings on Canopy Jazz: Zingaro (2007) and Nearer the Sun (2005) and Very Early (1999) are available on CD Baby.
