The young multi-instrumentalist Louis Cole is one of the key figures in the vibrant Los Angeles contemporary jazz scene. After graduating from the Jazz Studies program at USC Thornton in 2009, he formed the electronic jazz-funk band KNOWER with Genevieve Artadi. The band was an instant, worldwide success. In addition to being an excellent musician, Cole is also a small marketing wonder with a strong DIY mentality: he records all his own videos and has built up a loyal fan base via social media. In 2018 he released his third solo album "Time" via BRAINFEEDER, the label of his fellow LA citizen Flying Lotus. On the album he collaborates with Thundercat, among others.
