Voltage & Fidelity
High Sonoran Style Magazine, April 2004: With an upbeat bluesy feel, James Kole takes his listeners on a high voltage tour of ten original compositions on his new CD VOLTAGE AND FIDELITY. Listening to Kole you could easily imagine him firmly grounded at either end of a wide musical spectrum - from blues guitarist to folk singer. Interestingly it's his ability to combine the best elements from either side that gives him his own unique and personal sound. With a Fender Telecaster strapped on, and a harmonica around his neck, you might get that 'Bob Dylan inpression', but Kole's music is closer to to Clapton than Dylan. The songs OWN ALONE and TAKE ME BACK are good examples. Other high-volt tracks include the opening song; ONLY EIGHT, and a rockin' shuffle NOW'S THE TIME. Kole puts the final touch on the CD with a pretty Mexican cantina serenade AL FIN. - L. Johns FEATURE FILM CREDITS Dead Lenny (2006) Rojak Films. Songs: Grain Belt, Today.
