Paula Cole will be performing at JusticeAid’s Voices to Protect the Vote online May 18th concert in support of Election Protection and the 866-OUR-VOTE coalition hotline.
Paula Cole walks her path with her fans, writing out her life, sharing her connection at concerts, and over social media. Her compositions have been covered by a diverse range of artists (jazz legend Herbie Hancock, Annie Lennox, Katherine McPhee, JoJo, hip-hop duo THEY). She has sold approximately 3 million albums; performed with icons such as Peter Gabriel, Dolly Parton, Herbie Hancock, Emmylou Harris, Amy Lee of Evanescence, Burt Bacharach, Counting Crows, and Matchbox 20; and reaches 800,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.cWith a loyal fan base that appreciates the depth of her catalog and the wisdom earned through pain, tears, and joy, Cole is proud to go independently on her own label, 675 Records.
As the first woman in history to solely produce and receive the Best Producer Grammy nomination for This Fire, Cole broke boundaries with a searcher’s spirit. Her single “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” reached the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1997, and the following year she won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. In the fall of 2021, she will be touring on a double bill with Madeleine Peyroux, celebrating the success of This Fire. She has released a new video of Where Have All the Cowboys Gone? and a 20th anniversary-memento-live album entitled, This Bright Red Feeling. 2019 saw the release of her critically acclaimed, Revolution, her 10th album which continued Cole’s dedication to breaking the silence of generations of women and giving voice to those left behind by history.
Cole is now Professor at her alma mater Berklee College of Music, between tours and albums. She continues to write, produce, record, and perform heartfelt, meaningful, lasting music that defies categorization.
Paula Cole last performed at the JusticeAid fundraising event for Civil Rights Corps and co-beneficiary Essie Justice Group, two groups that are making major strides to fight inequality in our criminal legal system. This event celebrated Billie Holiday and took place at The Hamilton on Washington DC on April 24, 2018.
An extraordinary songwriter with a gorgeous voice.
