He grew up playing with his dad and other local artists that played in his dad's band. By the time Cole reached high school, he still was playing drums. But by the time he was around 15, Cole decided to pick up a guitar and learn how to play. After a lot of practice, Richie's influence became even more abundant; Cole decided he wanted to sing.
