Shelia: What is a typical day like for Me Kole Wells?
Busy, and full of the ins and outs of an independent artist. Right now I'm the lead in the off Broadway play Menopause
, so the majority of my time is devoted to the play. It runs through December in Charlotte, NC at the Capri Theather. We're in talks now to take it on the road. Aside from that, I'm writing and recording songs for my upcoming release, Stories In Life
. So every minute of my day is accounted for, but I'm loving it.
