INTERVIEW: Cole Phoenix

Hi Cole, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Very well thankyou and hope you are too! 

Can you talk to us more about your new single “Back Back To Me”?

BACK BACK TO ME is a modern ode to old school sass and brass. I think it’s a song Jessica Rabbit wouldn’t mind singing in a contemporary club, hopefully Roger Rabbit would approve too 😉 

Did any event inspire you to write this song?

Inspired by my love for retro music really, not any event in particular – the song cements and compliments my predilections. I love those somewhat campy Marilyn Monroe musicals SOME LIKE IT HOT, GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES…cutesy cheeky classy… I think BACK BACK TO ME captures these “c”s. 

Any plans to release a video for the single?

Possibly. Follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram under @thecolephoenix – and I’ll be sure to let you know! 

How was the recording and writing process?

Awesome, I wrote with two other talented musicians and again if you check out my social channels you’ll see little behind the scene snippets. 

What role does Australia play in your music?

I’m Australian so I think that many quintessential Australian values infuse my music – yes and of course that essential Aussie larrikin archetype lurks in every song 😉

How your writing and acting background does influences your music and the other way around?

Writing, acting, songwriting and performing are all forms of storytelling – just different mediums with the same intention – to move people. Inspiring physical movement, encouraging emotional movement, enticing connections within our community. Well crafted “stories” have that power – and that’s what attracts me to the many different mediums of storytelling. 

Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s your new album coming along?

I have an EP yet to be titled – keep up to date with me on my social platforms and I’ll be frank with you when my songs are ready for release… There’s a clue in there as to a possible title BUT have to wait a little to find out for sure 😉

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

Ha – just answered that 🙂 Best bet is to connect with me @thecolephoenix and I’ll let everybody know! 

Any plans to hit the road?

Next year showcases are set though the dates aren’t definite yet…Sorry to sound like a repetitive record here but please keep coming ‘BACK BACK TO ME’ on social media and you will be enlightened…eventually 😉 

What else is happening next in Cole Phoenixs world?

After the second single is released early next year – a music video will follow and I hope to make something special and memorable for my fans – visual concepts are already percolating. I’m so thankful for my fans’ support and encouragement thus far, I can’t wait to share more of my journey with them all next year. Thankyou to you too VENTS for your time and interest in this Aussie for an interview!! Happy Holidays and wishing you the very best for 2018 XxX
