Cole Chase Hudson was born and raised in Stockton, California, to school teachers Cole and Tamora Hudson. Hudson grew up admiring the likes of My Chemical Romance, Blink-182, and Fall Out Boy — bands he discovered on his older sister’s iPod. He took an interest in fashion at a young age and drew inspiration from the pop-punk genre. Hudson went to Bear Creek High School but later moved to an online school to harness his social media career.
Hudson first began his career on the social media app Music.ly, which has since been discontinued. In 2019, he moved over to the massively popular short-video making platform, TikTok, where he co-founded the collective, The Hype House, along with other notable TikTok influencers and personalities. He grew to fame on the platform by creating videos of skits, dances, and lip-syncs. In 2020, Hudson was signed to Interscope Records. Aside from his successful career on TikTok, Hudson also has an impressive following of over two million subscribers on YouTube.
In 2021, he starred alongside Sydney Sweeny in the film adaption of Machine Gun Kelly’s album, “Tickets To My Downfall,” titled “Downfalls High.” That same year, Hudson released his first studio single, ’21st Century Vampire.’ September 2021 saw the release of his first album, titled “Teenage Heartbreak.” Hudson has had a very fruitful career, even being nominated for the ‘Social Star Award’ at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
