Watch & Listen
Singer/songwriter, multi instrumentalist Tim Kapeluck’s music is steeped in the traditions of bluegrass and Appalachian folk. He has played for many years with banjo legends Bill Keith and Eric Weissberg. Tim’s songs include stories of characters that live on the fringes, social commentary, heartbreak and redemption.
The music delivers everything from barn burning, roof raising country folk to an Everly Brothers inspired ballad and all are created with Tim’s keen ear for poetic and insightful language as well as music that takes his traditional influences into a new realm. Renown dobro player, Cindy Cashdollar, will be performing with the band.
This concert marks the debut performance of the original songs on Tim’s new CD, By Time and Gravity. Tim partnered with producer Julie Last and some of upstate New York’s finest acoustic musicians on the creation of this CD. The album will be available for a reduced price specially for this Colony concert.
The songs of Brad Cole address the ups and downs of the human condition with both wit and raw insight. His passionate and distinctive delivery of roots-based folk music, woven with the grit and groove of old school bossa and rhythm & blues moves the listener’s soul in a direction that is unexpected, yet perfectly familiar.
Brad has just released his fourth full length record, entitled Lay It Down. Described by Glide Magaizine as "one of the most beautiful albums you will hear this year", Lay it Down is perhaps Brad's most soulfully eclectic and cohesive work to date.
The last twenty four months have been very fruitful for Brad - Playing over a hundred shows and sharing the stage with a range of immensely talented artists such as Chris Stapleton, Shovels and Rope, Ingrid Michaelson, Dave Davies, Ari Hest, Dan Navarro, Ellis Paul and Will Kimbrough.
In 2015 Cole, Nakoa & Treacher was born as a side project as Brad joined forces with award winning singer songwriters Matt Nakoa and Robinson Treacher for a few shows that has lead to critical acclaim, a viral live video series (produced by Neale Eckstein) and a run of sold out shows up and down the East Coast.
2017 marks the launch of Brad’s new project Bossa Blue - the band delivers a unique dark and smokey retro lounge vibe. Combining elements of Cool Jazz, Bossa Nova, Soul & Blues over re-envisioned Standards, contemporary and classic rock tunes and in the groove originals.
Cole has been a fixture on the Chicago music scene for years, performing along side artists that make up the fabric of the city’s musical legacy such as Junior Wells, Otis Rush, Uncle Tupelo and The Smashing Pumpkins. Brad led several Chicago based bands including Treatment, The Second Story and toured with NYC-based The Subscribers. Along with singer-songwriter Jeff Libman, he is co-founder of the acoustic/soul collective known as Check With Lucy. He was also a longtime member of Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music’s monthly “Songwriters Forum”. Brad continues this collaborative acoustic tradition with his acclaimed songwriters performance series, “Acoustic Circus”.
Currently based in New York City, Brad Cole tours extensively with his band and as a solo acoustic performer.
