The Voice semi-finalist Cole Vosbury's family tree is filled with music notes. He's a third generation musician with north Louisiana roots.

He's singing on the national stage now, but before he could walk or even talk Cole Vosbury understood the power of music.

Robin Vosbury says, “He’s one of those he just lives for the music."

It runs in the family.  Cole's father is also a musician, but says his son taught himself how to play the drums, bass guitar and keyboard.

“At about 14, I started noticing it was something different."

Keith Vosbury recalls the first time he performed with his nephew at the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport.

"I looked over at his dad and I couldn't believe what I was hearing."

Cole later took the stage with his dad and uncle with the group they formed "The Wizards of Voz."

Robin says, “At 16 it was really obvious he was on the next level of talent.”

That's when Sean Duran was introduced to Cole. He needed someone to fill in on guitar for his band.

"I guess he was 16. I didn't even know if that was legal or not."

Sean wasn't sure if Cole could handle it, but he says it was the best they ever sounded. That’s when they started the “Cole Vosbury Trio.”

"I've just been telling everybody this boy is amazing and now the world seeing."

Cole learned an important music lesson from his dad, which helped him earn a spot on The Voice.

“Learn where it came from. Don't forget the roots where it all started.”

For Cole Vosbury the road to The Voice started more than 1,600 miles away from Los Angeles in north Louisiana.

You'll hear more from Cole's family in the days leading up to his next live performance. You can catch Cole perform on "The Voice" Monday, December 9th at 7 pm on NBC 6.
