What cities are you from/ where are you based now?
I moved around so much… but I got a deep love for Minnesota, LA, New York, and ATL. Roots in West Africa, Liberia though. In the Midwest now, enjoying the beautiful bipolar weather.

What is your artist name? What is your real name? How did you get your artist name
My name is Sean Cole. Surprising right? Ha-ha. And my artist name as y’all already know, is Sean Cole. I was named after my grandfather, He died before I was born but the crazy thing is I feel a connection to him, like we have memories or something. It’s crazy. Handsome guy though. Liberians say it a little differently though. It’s Sean Cole. The O has a more rising sound and I’d like the L to be half silent. That’s the best I can explain it.

At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music?
I had been going back and forth with it all for some time… meeting 2Chainz (tity boi) in Atlanta when I was younger is what sparked my interest in creating music. At a certain point I realized that I needed to step into my talents you know. Music is what I’m born to do. So in 2014 I actually moved to Los Angeles and went to school for recording arts. I fine tuned my skills, built up my confidence, and said I’m going to do this. And I swear making that decision has been the best thing ever. I love this.

Has your upbringing played a role in shaping that you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?
Yeah, definitely, absolutely. My family and I left Liberia, came here to live the American dream. And it wasn’t the dreamland we thought it would be. We had to figure out A LOT of things. My childhood was basically split between two worlds. I grew up twice, learned life from two perspectives, and had to figure out who I was in the middle of them. My upbringing made me resilient. It made me smart, humble, and appreciative of life. I’m an optimistic person overall though. I’m grateful. And I put that into my music. When I say I’m hungry, I got to get it or when I say I wanted it so I went and got it, I’m for real. Also I can play with sounds because I came up on so many sounds too.

How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?
My sound is very melodic with catchy lyrics, great for captions and a late-night vibe. I’ve also got some inspiring and motivational songs. Like in “Costly” when I said “I’m too busy chasing my dreams to be worried about sleep, I got to go get it no matter what it cost me,” I’m literally speaking for entrepreneurs who’re too busy working and grinding all day and night trying to reach their dreams. When I was writing “Costly,” I couldn’t sleep because my head was just so full of melodies, dreams, goals, plans, and restlessness. I mean that’s not really a sound, more of a vibe- sorry to not answer the question right – but if you’re the kind of person where you are bursting with dreams and you got to get started, I’ve for sure got some motivation for you. Or if you’re feeling fly, getting ready to go out and flex you know, you could always turn up to “Ma Drip!”
