My name is Howard Cole and I'm a worship leader in a small town in Ohio, USA. Poieo (poy-eh'-o) is my solo studio project. I used to play in metal bands and my life was a mess until God gave me a new life. Now my mission is to take songs of the church and make them metal. Besides serving my local church, my weekdays are spent sharing music with residents in nursing homes. I'm just a normal guy who enjoys a simple life with my wife and daughter.
