Possessing a smooth and warm country tone, commanding stage presence and powerful vocal delivery, Lori Kole radiates engaging and gravitating energy, capturing the attention of every seat in the house. She has become a first call for Alberta’s corporate, casino and club entertainment, providing a full band of seasoned players for larger venues and an equally engaging intimate solo acoustic show. Lori’s girl-next-door friendly attitude enables her to build a relationship with the crowd from her first note as she belts out her sets of original tunes, complemented by her renditions and medleys of classic country, blues and rock hits.
Born and raised in the small prairie town of St. Martin,
Manitoba on Kolomaya Farms Cattle Ranch, Lori’s ancestry roots are of European
and Metis descent. She grew up a true country girl, with her first stage being
atop a gravel pile in her farmyard – the place where she began crafting her
singing skills. Lori’s first live stage experience was with Manitoba’s Ray St.
Germaine in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Moving to Calgary, Alberta in 2000, Lori has
continued to build her career as an independent country artist.
