Cole Premo joined WCCO as an Emma L. Bowen mentorship student in the summer of 2005. After four summers of working and learning an amazing amount about how TV news works, Cole was hired full-time as a web producer in 2009.
Cole went to the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities) where he graduated with an English literature and New Media studies degree.
Cole’s passion — other than journalism — is music. He plays lead guitar and lead vocals in a local blues rock band, Six Shot Love, that plays around the metro area. So, it only makes sense that he now interviews musicians of various levels of success who are playing shows in Minnesota.

“Get On The Grid” is like a real-life Craigslist for musicians, but without all the unknowns.
hen a musical has people humming, singing (sometimes hysterically) and air-guitar-playing the hit songs of the show before it even starts, it’s gonna be a good time.
With music, most people have a differing and constantly evolving mindset on what makes a certain artist/band interesting. That part’s pretty obvious, I know. For me, besides a gripping melody, what interests me is an overarching message that stands out among the crowd. I like a “hook,” so to speak, but one that shares an honest, profound message — or experience — with the listener.
Roster McCabe jams, but they’re not a jam band. They rock out, but they’re not quite a rockband. They, in fact, prefer to be called “electrorock,” but what they most want to do — is get people dancing.
Griffin will soon bring his music back to the Midwest. On Feb. 22, he plays what will likely be an intimate show at the Cabooze in Minneapolis.
Hot Water Music is back. The multi-talented, angst-filled punk rock band from Gainsville, Fla. recently announced that they will begin a two-month headline tour in January – their first in eight years.
From his love of Bob Dylan and Midwest beers to his rabble-rousing political thoughts, Old Crow’s lead man Ketch Secor gives us unreservedly straightforward – and poetic – insight into Old Crow Medicine Show.
Since vocalist/keyboardist Lawrence Gowan joined Styx in 1999, he’s already played more than 1,200 shows — yes, more than 1,200 — around the world. In late December, the legendary rock group with a 40-year history is stopping in Minnesota. Gowan took some time from very busy schedule to give an interview before the show.
Stephen Marley, the eight-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, producer and son of legendary reggae artist Bob Marley, has proven time and time again that his blood runs pure with naturally gifted musical ability.
Bruce Hall, the bassist for mega-rock band REO Speedwagon, took some time to chat with us about the band’s history, life on the road and about their upcoming show at Mystic Lake Casino.
The Lumineers, a folk group based out of Denver, Colo., is riding the success of its highly-anticipated self-titled album released in April. This weekend, they’re bringing the folk to Minnesota’s Basilica Block Party.
Well-known for their mega-hits “Barracuda,” “Crazy On You” and “Dog And Butterfly,” Heart is still rocking and recording albums after four decades of making music. Lead singer Ann Wilson took some time for a WCCO interview to discuss a number of topics, including her upcoming show in Minnesota and the band’s next album, “Fanatic.”
