Just a Matter of Time
Teresa Lynn Cole was born in San Marcos, Texas and reared in Austin, the 'live music capitol of the world.' Growing up in a family that was musically inclined, her father and grandmother noticed her singing ability early. And, from the age of two, she became the regular entertainment at every family reunion. Influenced by Patsy Cline, Etta James, Aretha Franklin and others, she learned to love all types of music. Upon graduating with honors from a private school, Teresa would often venture downtown and sing to the lead singers of bands during their breaks, hoping they would ask her onstage, which they usually did. As a result, she was asked to perform in the band, Magnetic M-Pac. This also resulted in a life-long friendship with lead singer, J-Rob. During the first year, the band opened for Bob Schneider and the Scabs several times, as well as produced several videos which taught Teresa a great deal about band performance. She also learned to sing backup for other lead vocalists. Simultaneously, Teresa discovered her songwriting ability. Her experiences became the inspiration in most of the songs on her current release while others were inspired by just knowing how to have a good time. Teresa says, 'I think everyone can relate to the messages in these songs, since they are definitely spoken from the heart.' For production of her CD, Teresa teamed up with Brandon Bishop, an extraordinary producer, as well as joined with Phillip Rackley, another talented producer who assisted with background vocal arrangements. 'After such an overwhelming response from people who listened to the finished album, we knew then that it was 'Just a Matter of Time',' she adds, playing on the title of her new release. Upon completion of the release, she was approached by the group, Sauce, to be their new and only female vocalist, with whom she is currently touring. Concurrently, promoting her own album, she is continually hitting radio stations and record stores. TO: Radio & Distribution Personnel: Check out Teresa's One-Sheet at https:// TeresaCole.com.
