Cole Lumpkin
Cole Lumpkin
Ever since he was old enough to walk, Cole Lumpkin has been impassioned by, fascinated with, and intimately connected with music. An extremely talented multi-instrumentalist from New York City with deep roots in jazz and deeply inspired by his love of rock, pop, and blues. Drawing from a diverse array of influences, from the avant-garde rock of Frank Zappa to the blue-eyed pop-soul of John Mayer, his affection for the art of organized sound has become his creed: to compose music and play it for the pleasure of the masses. His compositions are vibrant, a fusion of tasteful form, lyric and improvisation he has coined "Prog-Pop".

Live, he performs on multiple instruments with an impressive array of professional musicians, nailing tight arrangements of his work, taking musical risks during solos, and keeping the energy bar high. In the past, he has performed at historic NYC venues such as The Knitting Factory, The Bitter End, DROM NYC, FatBaby, The Pine Box Rock Shop, Lit Lounge, The Player’s Club, Sullivan Hall and The Delancey. Cole is currently recording his debut full-length album, a monumental step in his career, and plans to do a promotional tour across the U.S. to support its release.
