address the ups and downs of the human condition with both wit and raw insight. Director Steve Weiss was passionate about Brad’s story and how it often parallels our lives as filmmakers. This documentary explores Brad’s experiences, hopes, dreams, pain, and sorrow to discover how they shaped his music over the years.
I’m wandering through the desert of life going from one oasis of inspiration to the next. And as much as I think I am on a path, it’s the wandering, it’s the oasis, its the people and my addiction to music that has allowed inspiration to find me, and then let me spin it back to the universe. – Brad Cole
This film resonates with all artists as a story about embracing that which drives us and allowing our passion to form our lives, redeem our mistakes, and carve a path into our future. In making Cole Soul
we allowed ourselves to be inspired by Brad’s story. All the energy Brad brings to his music, we as filmmakers bring to telling a story on film. It is our hope that this chain of passion and artistry resonates with you, our film community, and inspires you to take the road less traveled – it makes all the difference.
I think the film address the realities of doing what you love, of how if you are engaged, fears turn into ideas, ideas turn into work, work into answers, and hopefully joy is a result. My story happens to be about following my passion for music and making it my livelihood , but its really about anyone who is trying to make what they love, their life. – Brad Cole
