Cole Premo has been a web producer at WCCO since 2009. He joined WCCO as an Emma L. Bowen mentorship student in the summer of 2005. After four summers of working hard and learning an amazing amount about how TV news works, Cole was hired full-time.

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 his solo band. So, it only makes sense that he now interviews musicians of various levels of success who are playing shows in Minnesota.

It’s hard not to respect a band as hardworking as the emerging Minneapolis rock-quartet, 3 Pill Morning, who say it took over 5 years, 500 shows and a hand full of member changes for things to finally “click.”

Local Music Tap: ‘The Color Pharmacy’

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.

Local Music Tap: Alex Steel Of Roster McCabe

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.
