Bear the Astronot

I hate to see music fall into so many formulas. All the Pop artists sound alike. All the Rappers on the radio sing about the same things. All the dance music is just a formula to sell club fun. I just hope that I make a little dent in all of that formula, and knock off the algorithm, even if it’s just a little bit.

  • Music is Important

    I have worked in the music industry in many facets and positions. I have built the stages, run the boards, and performed on the stages. I have recorded the songs, promoted the shows, and paid many a band out of my own pocket. My love for music goes far beyond making it. I hope that you can feel that love in the songs I write and produce. Music is dying right now as we speak. Not in an end of the world sort of way, but in the fact that our kids don’t listen to it like they used to. That is why it is so special that you took the time to stop by, listen, and download some songs.

  • Thank you so much for listening. My name is Bear Cole, and I have several alter ego’s that help me make music. I was young once and worried about making it, getting signed, and all that crap. Now I have realized that music is sooooo much more fun when you just make it for you. I appreciate all of you that take the time to listen, and hope if you do that you also take the time to reach out and contact me. I basically make this music for you and I, and love hearing your thoughts. I have tons of albums, and keep making more. You are free to download most for free, or can make a donation if you would like.
