Cole Capshaw was born in Wilson, North Carolina and spent his childhood singing in church and listening to his father play Southern Rock, Classic Rock, and Blues on guitar. At age 14, Cole picked up the guitar himself and was a natural at both playing and singing. For many years, Capshaw made his living as a professional Tower Climber, which requires a lot of travel. He would take his guitar with him on the road so that he could write and play open mic nights whenever he got the chance. After moving to Richmond, Virginia for a job, he played in bars all over the River City. It was in one of these bars that Capshaw was first approached by country artist Tony Jackson and asked if he could record Capshaw’s song, “Old Porch Swing.” Soon after his first cut, Capshaw relocated to Nashville, TN, where he continues to develop himself as a writer and an artist.
