Somewhere between a soul pop concert, South Side jazz club, slam poetry reading, and punk rock dive bar, lives the music of Cole DeGenova... As a pianist, vocalist, and composer Cole DeGenova has spent most of his life crafting his eclectic artistic voice, beginning his career at age 16 as a jazz pianist around his native Chicago. As a bandleader, he started his funky alternative soul group Cole DeGenova & The Peoples Republic at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, where he released his first album JUST PEOPLE AGAIN in 2009. A few years later, after thousands of miles on the road, DeGenova released his second album ANOTHER COUNTRY in 2012. 

Now based in Chicago and Los Angeles, he is both an in demand studio musician as well as a touring performer around the globe. He has worked with Lupe Fiasco, Brett Dennen, Chance the Rapper, Gallant, Meshell N'Degeocello, Paula Cole, James Carter, engineer Eddie Kramer, producer/drummer Dave King, photographer Bruce Weber, Hey Champ, David Shaw (of The Revivalists), Chali 2na, Naughty Professor, The Heard, and experimental jazz trio Hanging Hearts. He was also featured on the Latin Grammy winning album “Fantastico” by Lucky Diaz and the Grammy-nominated album “Ology” by Gallant. DeGenova is also a co-founder and organizer of the Chicago artist collective The Gala. His third album THE RADIO HERO MIXTAPE was released spring of 2015 and the song “Hollywood Girl” was chosen as a Finalist in the 2015 American Songwriting Awards. He is currently working with producer Georgia Anne Muldrow on his upcoming 4th album REALLY HUMAN, set to be released in 2018.
