Bio

MTV christened her "Buzzworthy." Clear Channel's iHeart Radio called her "One to Watch." With over 1.4 million Twitter followers, it's clear that audiences are indeed watching, and listening to, rising dance music artist Kimberly Cole.

Following the breakout success of her first single, "Smack You," which Seventeen magazine called an "incredibly addictive dance-pop tune," she recently teamed with DJ/remixer/producer Eddie Amador and up-and-coming artist Garza on "Arrow Through My Heart," which cracked the Billboard Dance Chart's Top 30, and reteams on "U Make Me Wanna" (Big Beat/Atlantic Records), to be released January 31.

The charismatic artist is beginning to make her mark as a headliner, having opened for Katy Perry, LMFAO and Shiny Toy Guns. This year she entertained U.S. troops in Hawaii and will continue to perform shows across the U.S. and Japan as a headliner for the 2012 "Welcome Home Leatherneck Tour."

"Smack You," the lead track off her 2010 debut album, Bad Girls Club (Oxygen Media/iTunes), is a girlfight-themed song about standing up for yourself, which Cole dedicates to "anyone who has ever been a victim of bullying." The edgy, upbeat song has received strong Top 40 radio and mix show adds across the U.S. and broke the Billboard Dance Chart's top 4. The video has a Tarantino-inspired Kill Bill-style fight club theme. "Smack You" was featured on the fifth season of the Oxygen reality show "The Bad Girls Club," a collaboration which led the network to support the release of her first full-length album.

Bad Girls Club is infused with catchy tunes, clever lyrics and irresistible beats. She co-wrote all the songs with Grammy-nominated producer/writer Jeeve (Nicole Scherzinger, Paulina Rubio, Santana), joined by the songwriting talents of Philip Lawrence (Bruno Mars, Flo Rida, Cee-Lo) and The Writing Camp (Beyonc"e, Britney Spears, Rihanna). From the sexy "Cherry Pop" and "Pocket Rocket" to the party-hearty beat of "Get Stupid" to such relationship-driven tracks as "Psycho," "Walk of Shame" and the comedy-laced "Three Way," Cole establishes herself as a talent both fresh and fearless.

A native of Orange County, California, Kimberly Cole studied piano, voice and dance beginning at the age of four. But it was in her teenage years when her skills all came together, performing for huge audiences as a champion competitive artistic roller skater, a demanding sport where she learned how to tell a story with her body and enthrall arena-sized crowds by fusing hip-hop and break-dance into electrifying routines. While earning a reputation as a spunky on-camera talent, in hosting gigs for MTV and as a celebrity judge on VH1's "Saddle Ranch," she has cultivated her acting talents as well, co-starring with Eliza Dushku in the Fox series "Dollhouse."

Cole has performed on soundtracks for such films as Fame, her song "I Know" accompanies the closing credits of Mean Girls 2, and Oxygen has featured more than a dozen of her songs on its series "Bad Girls Club," "Love Games" and "The World According to Paris." Kimberly Cole has also lent her talents to myriad commercials, including those for Old Navy, Mattel, Mountain Dew, Skechers and Pantene, most recently appearing in ads for Skittles in a custom pair of candy-covered headphones.
