In early 2011, singer/song-writer/musician Cole Powell began production on his first commercial release with producer/engineer/musician Nick Smith of Mississippi-based band The Colonels and a stellar group of professional backing musicians including Marvin Curtis III (The Colonels), Tyler Bridge (Crossing Over; Grady Whalens), and Greg Stewart (international-selling duo Eclectik Soul).
After several months of production, Powell emerged from the studio triumphantly with Thanks For The Broken Heart. The project was released internationally on October 11, 2011, on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and many other digital and physical retailers. The album has since garnered international critical recognition with positive coverage coming from U.S.-based IMR Magazine, Canada's Music Emissions, and the U.K.'s Indie Music Magazine.
