Courtney Cole’s Spiritual” is bone chilling with amazingly beautiful vocals. Vocalizing her anthem of self refection and feeling alive again. This single is unlike other songs I’ve heard of Cole’s, this quietness of any backup sound and central focus’ fully on her raw vocals. Ahh “Spiritual” is a HIT!
“2017 was a tough one for me. After a lot of ups and downs, I moved to a new city and my life became focused on making ends meet and discovering myself again. I had to ask myself a lot of really important questions. I realized that I had lost myself in the midst of trying to be the ‘next big thing..” letting it control where I lived, what I said, who I hung out with, what I wore.. etc. It was time for me to take my life and career back into my hands and not let it control me anymore,” explains Courtney.
“I wrote “Spiritual” when I first noticed myself coming alive again. I had fallen in love, not just with a person, but with the ocean. The uncertainty of the ocean has always been one of my biggest fears.. so I knew if I could push myself and accomplish that fear, I could find the courage in me to achieve the dreams I’ve always wanted musically. So everyday I try to make it a point to paddle out so I always have that reminder. It was important for me to keep this song stripped down and simple, just because that’s what my life has become over the past year… stripped down, and simple.”

“Music has never NOT been a part of my life. It was my way of learning and understanding me. I always connected deeply to the emotion in music and lyric, as I’m a very emotional person. Being able to sing how you feel and connect people to a particular emotion, that’s how you change lives! It heals people.”
