Jacob Edward Cole Chills and Soothes on ‘Cold Blue’ EP

Sunny-Sad Songs Make Great EP

The new release from Jacob Edward Cole (of King Cole and Saint Anne’s Place) is six songs of breezy guitar beauty. Recorded in Lompoc and Buellton, Cole’s pretty guitar work evokes his climes like a wintry Gaviota wind, sun-kissed and shiver-shook both. Highlights include “Trouble” and “Too Much Too Soon,” which in their rock-and-lull swings remind one of the blue-bruised moods of Freedy Johnston and Chris Isaak. See Cole live this Friday, February 12, at the Ojai Deer Lodge; Thursday, February 18, at Los Globos in Silverlake; and Friday, February 26, at Bombay Bar & Grill in Ventura.
