Tristan Cole is more than just a nice boy next door with bad boy charm. He is an award-winning singer-songwriter, model, actor, and dancer whose genre of music includes Pop and R&B. Some of the music artists who have influenced his music include Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, Robin Thicke, Marvin Gaye, and Usher. With his playfulness, sensual falsetto, crisp dance moves, athletic physique, and his mass appeal to a wide audience, Tristan Cole draws tons of “oohs” and “awes” wherever he goes.
David Linton, former Senior Vice President of R&B Promotions/Marketing at Capitol Records has referred to Tristan as a young Usher, noting that “he works hard to perfect his craft and just like Usher when his moment comes he’ll be ready.” Linton continues, “If you don’t know the name you will. This young man from North Carolina has been paying his dues and putting down some smooth sounds.”
As a youth, Tristan Cole gained the attention of both Lou Pearlman, CEO of Transcontinental Records, (responsible for signing NSync, Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears) and Christian “Dio” Diodatti, CEO of Caliber Records (responsible for remixes for Michael Jackson and Mary J. Blige among others). Through business relationships with these music moguls he was able to meet and work with people like Andrea Martin (song writer/voice coach whose credits include Whitney Houston and Mariah Cary), and Glenn Douglas Packard (choreographer for artists like Britney Spears).
In 2016, Tristan was featured on the hit single “Fun” on Jam Artis’ (Bruno Mars’ bass player) solo album which was given major praise by Bass Magazine, Bruno Mars, and Randy Jackson. He was also featured on Jacob Colon’s hot summer house track, “Sweat,” which made it to the top 100 House charts for two consecutive weeks and was released by Nervous Records. After releasing four successful singles under the name Ricky Jarman and some recent rebranding, this young artist is now officially and artistically known as Tristan Cole.
He has been featured in numerous venues, publications, and websites, including MTV-U, The Canadian Music Festival, Vevo, Top 40 Radio, New York Fashion Week, The Hype Magazine, DNA Magazine, on the cover of Super Models SA magazine, Kokane Music Blog, ThisIs50.com, Black Dragon Live, Jamsphere, on the cover of Get Out Magazine, Adelente Magazine, and The Carolina Music Festival to name a few.
Tristan Cole’s list of accolades includes winning Best Male R&B Artist of the Year at the Carolina Music Awards and Best Male Vocalist for the Odyssey Night Life Awards. He has also partnered with the Sound Affects charity foundation and opened for Grammy nominee, J. Cole. DNA Magazine proclaims, “Tristan is the Channing Tatum of Pop!” And DJ Nunez from Colorado’s KS 107.5 FM says, “Tristan is certainly bringing out a new sound and style…Such a talented man. If you don’t know him, get to know him!”
AmusedNow.com has said, “Some people have it all: talent, looks and drive to succeed. Tristan Cole has all that and more. In addition to being an amazing upcoming star, he is professional, polite and positive. In short, he’s fabulous!” Whatever is required, Tristan Cole creates it and makes things happen, giving proof to the dream that living what you love can become a reality.
