Sabastian Kole (born Coleridge Gardner Tillman on January 17, 1989 in Birmingham) is a vocalist, songwriter and music producer.

Kole, whose parents are both pastors in the Apostolic church, began singing and writing music in church choirs and expanded into rap as a teenager. He became friends with Ruben Studdard when they auditioned on the same day for American Idol.

Kole graduated from Ramsay High School and continued singing while majoring in music technology at the University of Alabama. He and Michael Warren co-wrote the Jennifer Lopez/Flo Rida collaboration "Goin In" in 2012 and was signed by EP Entertainment that December. He chose his stage name as a reference to composer Johann Sebastian Bach. For EP he participated in writing and producing Alessia Cara's debut album Know-It-All. He also wrote several songs that were used on ABC-TV's Grey’s Anatomy.

Kole's own debut album, SOUP: Southern Urban Pop, was released in October 2016 by Motown Records.
