Born: November 25, 1963
Recognized for her intelligent approach and sensual delivery, Canadian songstress Holly (Jean) Cole was born in Halifax, NS, 25 Nov 1963. The daughter of long- time CBC Radio host Leon Cole and arts administrator Carolyn Cole, Holly Cole developed her singing career in Toronto in the mid-1980s, a particularly rich time in the city's music scene.
She studied jazz vocal technique 1982-4 at Humber College. Her earliest work was in support of Toronto- based groups Canadien Club, Whitenoise, Parachute Club and Vital Sines. She formed her own trio, with pianist Aaron Davis and bassist David Piltch, in 1986 and quickly established herself with her distinctive smoky contralto voice and slightly arch stage persona. She was especially popular in Japan, where her 1992 single Calling You was a top-10 hit....
