Bossa Blue
Bossa Blue takes you back to the whiskey-soaked juke joints and jazz clubs where the blues first found the subtle pulse of bossa nova jazz. This extraordinary group of musicians rearrange contemporary, classic rock, and jazz standards with the influences of 'cool jazz,' bossa nova, soul, and blues. Bossa Blue delivers a dark and smokey retro lounge vibe that will stir up your body and caress your soul.

Bossa Blue is the vision of award-winning songwriter and bandleader Brad Cole. A veteran of the Chicago music scene and current resident of New York City, Brad has 5 studio albums under his belt. His 2016 release 'Lay It Down' has received critical acclaim; 'No Depression' Magazine says "Lay It Down masterfully takes listeners from the familiar spaces of reflective, lyric-driven folk music to the expansive reaches of Bossa Nova jazz. It’s a beautiful album."

Since 2010, Brad has toured constantly across the U.S., sharing the stage with the likes of talented musicians such as Chris Stapleton, James Hunter, Ingrid Michelson, Shovels & Rope, and Dave Davies Of The Kinks, to name a few.

“I grew up on jazz and, over the years, I became a total bossa-phile. The idea of re-arranging and playing some of my favorite rock/soundtrack-of-my-life tunes into a jazz/bossa construct feels like a natural progression for me as an artist. And it is really fun. The blues elements are just where I come from as a person. So, going through my jazz collection with the idea of playing basic and raw interpretation of these tunes is like hitting the jackpot for me. This band is a true collaboration and we are always looking for great soloists to sit in.” - Brad Cole
