Jude Cole’s imprint on the music industry is profound and everlasting, not only as the producer behind Lifehouse’s Billboard chart-topping hits and Kiefer Sutherland’s renowned debut album Down In A Hole, but also as a songwriter, manager and artist.

On Dec. 5, Cole will release an eclectic, 5-song masterpiece EP titled In Plain Sight (PRE-ORDER HERE).

"In Plain Sight is the culmination of my years as a touring and session guitarist, bassist, singer and songwriter - as an artist manager, record producer and independent record company owner. It’s the first in a series of EP’s to be released in the next year. I’m thrilled about the songs, the way they sound, and the artwork that was created to accompany them," Cole said.

As a pop artist, Cole ascended to the top of the Billboard Pop Singles chart with “Baby, It’s Tonight” and "Time For Letting Go" in the early 90s. This time around, Cole is not following the industry norm on getting the music to fans through streaming platforms.

"I hope I’ve earned the right to, at the very least, release music in a way I’d like it to be heard. I don’t speak for a single other artist when I say this, but for me, a lot of time was spent recording In Plain Sight and getting it right. Then you have a gifted set of ears like Chris Lord-Alge to mix it. Then another expert like Ted Jensen to frame it in mastering. The notion of whisking it off to throw it up on a digital site just feels… kind of value-less. The idea of someone typing your name on a whim, just to hear a few seconds of it on a crappy speaker system doesn’t motivate me. I mean, do we ask an artist of oil paintings who’s devoted their life to a craft to finish a painting so we can view it on Instagram? I need to create work that meets my standard of quality. If only 10 people buy it… then next record I’ll set a goal for 11!" Cole said.
