About Band

Ten years ago, after finishing a degree in music and business, Coles Whalen decided to sell everything she had in order to buy a camper. This camper became her home as she toured the nation selling her first record Coles Whalen EP (2005) soon followed by Gee Baby (2006) - her first full length album. Whalen found a way into Borders bookstores and spent almost four years playing multiple shows a day in Borders across the US, building a following and selling over 10,000 CDs right out of her truck.

In 2007 Whalen signed with an independent label and released Nothing Is Too Much (2007). After a year, she found herself in a corner. The label owned the masters, couldn't afford to print more copies and had her legally bound for two additional records. Having no other option Whalen regrouped, bought herself out of contract, and began again.

Whalen moved from her hometown of Denver, CO to Nashville, TN to work on her songwriting. She continued to tour out of music city, playing around 100 shows a year, and wrote and released her 4th and 5th CDs, The Whistle Stop Road Record (2009) and I Wrote This for You (2012) which include co writes with some of Nashville’s best, among them Rob Crosby and Keith Stegall.

Accomplishing all she set out to do in music city, Whalen headed back to Denver where she currently lives. She still tours nearly non stop, recent performances include opening spots for Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, Rufus Wainwright, Paula Cole and Kellie Pickler and her music has been heard on US, Canadian and Australian Television. (Passport and Pallete, La Galere, CMC, Elle: A Modern Cinderalla Tale).

In early 2013 Whalen signed with the indie label XMG Records and her first album for the company "Come back, come back" will debut July 16, 2013 . The "Come back, come back" national tour launches in May 2013, so keep an eye on tour dates!
