Singer-songwriter Courtney Cole is announcing the release of her new EP, Earthquake. The EP is available for pre-order on iTunes and will be available on all streaming platforms on August 21st.
The 4-track EP includes 3 previously released singles — “New Eyes,” “Right Direction,” “Spiritual” — and the brand new title track, “Earthquake.” The EP plays like a collection of sonic diary entries, chronicling Cole’s journey of self-discovery as she tackles what it means to find power and trust within oneself. Her rich vocals radiate with palpable emotion, shimmering atop the mellow, acoustic-leaning production. “It’s about choosing joy in the midst of pain and love in the midst of uncertainty,” Cole writes, “and finding out who you truly are in the process.”
The New Orleans native first dipped her toe in the music industry as a college student in Nashville, TN. Coming of age in music city, Cole found herself deeply immersed within the country scene, fine-tuning her lyrical chops with some of the industry’s finest. Her early releases garnered attention from Rolling Stone and Huffington Post, and led to touring opportunities with Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, and Kane Brown, just to name a few. While performing on Miranda Lambert’s Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour in the fall of 2015, Cole released her self-titled EP. Her debut amassed over 2M+ streams and featured her fan-favorite single, “Ladylike,” which was co-written with GRAMMY, CMA and ACM-Award winning songwriter, Shane McAnally.
Cole relocated to California a few years ago, craving a change of pace and scenery. Inspired by the West Coast pop scene and her new sun-soaked lifestyle, Cole started creating music that reflected her new surroundings. The Earthquake EP is being released in conjunction with her new podcast “The Love Freq Podcast with Courtney Cole,” where she discusses the beauty and importance of healing and growing from earth shattering moments in life and reconnecting with the truest, deepest parts of ourselves in order to live our most authentic, creative expression. The Love Freq name is inspired by the musical tuning of 528Hz (compared to our standard tuning of A=440 HZ), which has coined the term “the love frequency” due to its harmonic presence all throughout nature, lack of dissonance, and healing properties. Cole’s final single on the EP, “Earthquake,” was recorded in the tuning of 528Hz.
