Brian John "BJ" Cole is THE most renown pedal steel guitarist in the UK. Coming to prominence in the early 1970s with the band Cochise, Cole has played in many styles, ranging from mainstream pop and rock to jazz and eclectic experimental music, but has never forgotten the instrument's roots in country music. Through his varied and extensive session work and long career as a performer, he has come to be regarded as Britain's pre-eminent pedal steel guitarist, also playing lap steel and dobro.
BJ has played with EVERYONE and the list is too long to include here. He founded Cow Pie records in 1978 and now returns to his roots, releasing his heartfelt take on the traditional Hawaiian sounds that are at the core of country and western music. Daydream Smile is scheduled for an autumn release.
