Cole Sees Himself as a Creator of Art
Born on July 7, 1998, in the United States, Tyler Cole’s age is 20. Cole likes to think of himself as an artist and creator who creates art in the forms of music, film, and any other medium he sees fit. He says that he is currently focused on gaining a balance between his output in music and film.
Cole became interested in both music and film when he was in high school, and was influenced by the shifting trends in both mediums. He was inspired by breakthrough artists such as Childish Gambino, Justin Vernon, Frank Ocean, and Kendrick Lamar, to focus on his work and stand behind it, even if it was a little strange sometimes.
His music and videos are certainly original and artsy, and his sound is something all his own.
He Formed His Own Band, Mourning Knights
Cole got into the film department of his high school and started making films of his own. But it was in middle school where he started playing the guitar and later formed his own band named Mourning Knights with a friend. He soon got the opportunity to perform shows in Los Angeles, California, and was noticed by listeners and industry representatives.
Cole Has Released Two Albums
In 2006, Cole released his debut album Stranger, followed by his sophomore effort titled We’re in Love & the World is Ending.
He also began a collaboration with Willow Smith and she co-produced his single “Afraid.” In 2017, he released a single named after the legendary actor Sidney Poitier. He also collaborated with Smith on a song called “Fools” by the artist Jabs.
Most recently, Cole’s latest single has grabbed plenty of attention and is called “Love at First Fight.” The accompanying music video of the single features his good friend Jaden Smith, and both of them got to show off their acting chops in it.
His Dream is to Win an Oscar Within Five Years

Cole Has a Complicated Relationship with His Absentee Father
He may well get it, seeing the way people have appreciated Cole’s feature film titled The Father Complex. The film captures Cole’s quest to learn about his biological father and his attempts to meet him. Cole admits that he had always dreaded Father’s Day over the years because he could not be with his biological dad.
He was curious to know about his biological father and one day he took the matter into his own hands and started the process. Making the film, The Father Complex was Cole’s way of coping with the trauma he faced at not having a father around at a young age.
It was a big shock to him when he learned that his father had been in prison for a really long time.
Music Gave Cole Direction & Purpose in Life
