needing a fix of the old Cole charm can check out his new CD...a
sweet, rambunctious, romantic ode to the 1960s...so retro it's
the spirit and sonic qualities that made artists like The Everly
Brothers, Traveling Wilburys and Jimmy Buffet classics, In Our
Time is a genuine pleasure to listen to."

"I love it--especially In Our Time...you have really
hit your niche...the bit of Irish sound in the interlude, that
was really nice."
guitar work [on Not Enough], so George Harrison. Same trippy,
"wow a guitar can make that sound" stuff. COOL!!!
fan club message board
YOUR DREAMS is a remarkable collection of original music
that takes you on an honest, insightful and revealing journey through
the sorted passages of life and love. The album begins with the
light, upbeat, pop tune "Fallin'" about the innocent and
untarnished hope of young love, followed by the title track "All
Your Dreams" a mature, more desperate representation of love
and desire. "Dreams" is definitely the best song on the
album. It's filled with grinding guitar solos, haunting backing
vocals and penetrating lyrics such as "we have nothing left
to lose so tell me all your dreams, I really want to care."
The series progresses to the cynically playful "More Money"
with the quasi-misogynic message "she don't want you kisses
brother...kisses won't buy her diamond rings." Another musical
treasure on the CD is "Mary's All Right," an elegant expression
of human existence, reflecting that life and love are a struggle,
but through strength and resilience we continue to hope for "a
brand new day." The album winds down with the carefree ditty
"Back in L.A." This song captures a genuine West Coast
flavor meant to be played full blast while cruisin' in the convertible
down Sunset Boulevard. Ultimately, the CD comes full circle with
the final cut "Another Man," a dark ballad about the fall
from innocence as evidenced in the phrase "they drank his blood
and spit him out, he wasn't tough enough. A thrilling roller
coaster ride of uncompromising, heartfelt lyrics and just the right
mixture of pop, rock and blues, this is definitely a CD to be played
over and over...

in the vast world of music, something totally unexpected comes along
that delivers such a sweet sound and soulful lyrics it becomes an
instant favorite. TONITE, by Bradley Cole, lays
out romantic ballads, energetic pop tunes, and there's even a nod
to the blues. What makes it such easy listening is the fine voice
of Mr. Cole and his guitar playing that accents the entire album.
Some of the best studio musicians back up the artist with intense
saxophone solos and musical punctuation that gives an added edge
to the tracks." Fifi Chao, Dinesty, Food, Wine &
