Words: Saam Das
American soul artist Sebastian Kole made a minor splash across the pond in 2012 (as co-writer on Jennifer Lopez hit 'Goin' In' under his Coleridge Tillman penname) but has popped up again lately as writer of the currently-blowing-up 'Here' by Alessia Cara. Taking advantage of the success that track has had, Kole's had a selection of his latest material pop up, which stands out in its own regard. Listen to those tracks, along with 'Here', below.
Judging from the new tracks, Kole is clearly a versatile songwriter - the sparkling Ryan Tedder-esque pop of 'Priceless' to the string-laden ballad of 'Stay', by way of country gospel on 'Love Doctor'. And then there's 'Here', perhaps the biggest sign of Kole's talent yet, with its lyrical craving for innocence and nostalgia-driven musical underlay.
