Lincoln Exposed showed a lot of differing musical acts, including Cole Shoemaker, who had spent time working on a new set of songs with his bandmate, Brandon Rakes. Shoemaker had recently taken a hiatus from performing music and for Lincoln Exposed.
Shoemaker has been creating and performing for the Lincoln Music scene for nearly four years, from doing solo acts, to working in bands. Some of his notable projects have included the Marty McMoon project and the formation of the band, Wise. He has met several creatives in the Lincoln scene to get inspirations for his work and contribute to others.
