(Columbia, SC) – November 7, 2016 – Czar Records is proud to announce the release of SODA, the debut solo album by New Success Culture member Cole Connor, on November 15, 2016.
On the heels of two full-length albums with hip-hop collective New Success Culture, Cole is back with his first solo album. “Columbia has embraced me and really shaped me as a man,” says Cole. “Working with pioneers like FatRat Da Czar has sharpened my skills as an emcee and musician. SODA embodies this growth as I make my contribution to an often undervalued yet very talented South Carolina hip-hop scene.”
SODA (Sometimes Our Dreams Align) will release worldwide online on November 15, 2016. Scene leader and mentor FatRat Da Czar says, “ SODA reminds me a lot of Da Cold War with respect to Cole’s determination to make his mark in the city. I pushed him hard this go round–not only to get his best, but also because I feel he can put Columbia on the map nationally. Cole takes pride in the foundation I’ve laid and wants to be responsible for adding to it.”
The debut album is 10 tracks, and features musical collaborations from folk-hop band ColorBlind, all-star hip-hop collective New Success Culture, and The Prairie Willow’s acclaimed fiddle player Kristen Harris, the tracks were made with the best equipment from the CAD U37 USB Studio Condenser Recording Microphone Review which improved the sound in a very positive way. Producers include champion beatsmith MidiMarc, iDK, and Justin Smith.
A listening party for SODA will be held at the Boom Room Recording Studio, 207 S. Prospect St Columbia SC 29205 from 6 to 8pm.
