Just as the anti-war artists of the 60's expressed their political views through music, so too are an increasing number of artists of the TEA Party movement who refuse to keep silent about the destruction of this great nation by many who ironically subscribed to those radical, anti-government views of the 60's counterculture movement.
In addition to his music career, James has broken into the acting scene, starring in the full length crime-drama movie entitled, Divide
, written and directed by Joshua Zientarski (currently in post production).

Kole's newest single, Victim in Blue
(a declaration of his support for Israel) was released on July 4th, 2011.
When asked why he has always incorporated his passion for the U.S.A. and her freedoms in his music, he replied:
I was thrilled by the principles and founding of this country since I visited historic Williamsburg, Virginia as a little boy. Additionally, at 7 or 8 years old, a frightening pass through "Checkpoint Charlie", before the Berlin Wall fell, solidified things in my mind and heart. If men with machine guns can confiscate my toys and children's books for the purpose of keeping an oppressed citizenry in darkness and captivity, as long I have a voice I will do all I can to prevent that from happening in my beloved America. I am also greatly inspired by the memory of my Grandfather - a WWII bomber pilot, P.O.W., Purple Heart Recipient, and American hero.

The slogan "Silent No More" is every bit as applicable in the arts as it is with every other aspect of the TEA Party movement and we are proud to be in company of so many amazingly talented conservative artists like James, who are not afraid to show their love of country and its founding principles in their craft. It is our belief that if we were just another Internet music site, odds are pretty high that we may never have crossed paths...nor would we be showcasing these great patriots here at BigHollywood.
