Jeffery Dale Cole
The youngest of six children, Jeffery grew up on the southern shores of Lake Ontario in a loving home, surrounded by music and creativity. From an early age, Jeffery had an over-active imagination and sense of adventure which led to a life-defining summer abroad in which he experienced life in Nepal, India and The United Kingdom. That experience opened up his eyes to the vastness of life and cultured an attitude of awe towards the beauty and diversity of nature and the people who call it home.
Jeffery has been happily married to his high school sweetheart for over 25 years, during which time he gained a formal education in music, theology and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Jeffery was also active in the Nashville music scene for about two decades but has recently moved back to the Great Lakes region to be near family. In addition to all this, Jeffery has accumulated a vast array of life experiences, as do many who share an artistic bent and who wander through life trying to express that creativity while also paying the bills. Jeffery has learned to combine and channel his imagination and life experience into positive and thought provoking music and books with a philosophy which states: The writing of a piece of music, a song or a book is a paradox in the same way that love is. The nature of love is that it longs to be returned but if it is not, it is not,somehow, less than love. In the same way, a song longs for a listener and a book for a reader. It is Jeffery's hope that you will experience the fullness of that philosophy.
