Date of Birth:
Only a select few drummers can boast major TV show appearances, endorsements with well-known percussion manufacturers, and the admiration of more experienced peers. Even fewer can lay claim to this by the age of 4.Now in 3rd Grade, Cole Marcus is impressing worldwide audiences and the entertainment industry with his amazing talent. His precocious drumming skills, songwriting, and vocal abilities have garnered appearances on countless TV and radio shows, not to mention feature articles in DrumPro, DRUM!, and Modern Drummer magazines.Cole's passion for the arts has developed him into a seasoned actor, where he has worked in feature films and several national TV commercials.At just three years-of-age, he was called up to the drum kit by the legendary Dave Weckl at one of his drum clinics. Cole proceeded to wow the audience and Weckl alike.By the age of four, Cole was offered endorsements with Mapex drums and Zildjian cymbals and had signed with BMI (Broadcast Music Inc.). This made him the youngest person to ever land an artist endorsement and the youngest songwriter in history to sign with BMI.Since then, Cole has signed with Vic Firth, Factory Metal Percussion, and Phat Foot. A highlight of Cole's year is his annual appearance at the NAMM show, where many of these companies invite him to perform and sign autographs alongside the best drum artists in the industry.Cole has also gone on to put his musical talents to work. He is currently writing music for his upcoming album and continues to headline concerts across internationally.Clearly, the pride of Cole's accomplishments at a young age is his humility and compassion. He recently returned from a tour in Japan benefiting handicapped children. Cole also donates his time annually to the Jonathan Jaques Celebrity Torch, where celebrities come together to celebrate the lives of children who have cancer or rare blood diseases, as well as other charities.Cole has aspired to many things at a young age, but at the end of the day, he is a happy 8-year-old. He is home schooled and loves playing with his friends. He also loves going to his church, where he often sits in and takes his Dad's place in the gospel band.Cole is inspired by every style of music and is continually progressing in his own unique style and abilities. His interpretation and phrasing are unparalleled and, like his drumming, are an inspiration to see and hear. His songwriting, arranging, and creativity defy his age.
