Ahead of Friday’s Drive I caught up with singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist Katie Cole. We talked about all sorts from a crazy couple of years on tour and developing, releasing and performing new music as part of The Smashing Pumpkins to Katie’s plans for a new solo EP in 2023, her latest Christmas single “Baby, It’s Christmas” and how Christmas in Australia compares to the US and UK! Plus Katie talked about what it’s like playing small venues compared to huge arenas like Madison Square Garden and shared some fantastic advice for solo musicians about developing confidence on stage too. Katie has a growing collection of fantastic original Christmas songs to her name and as we’ve got Cliff and the US has Mariah… I’m pitching Katie Cole as the Australian Queen of Christmas!
