  • Paula Cole

    Grammy winner Paula Cole has released six solo albums over a 20 year career selling nearly three million albums and has performed with musical icons from Peter Gabriel to Dolly Parton along the way. Cole's emotionally deep and thrilling performances are poetic and fiercely touching.

    Her compositions have been covered by Herbie Hancock, Annie Lennox, and Katherine McPhee to name a few. Paula teaches and gives clinics in a spirit of giving back to the circle of music. With a loving allegiance to her fans, she maintains loyal communication online and after her live shows. As the first woman in history to solely produce and receive the best Producer Grammy nomination for her work, This Fire, Cole has broken boundaries with a searcher's spirit. From her top 10 hits of the 1990s to her more recent critically acclaimed albums, Paula Cole continues to write, produce, record, and perform heartfelt, meaningful, lasting music that defies categorization.

    “An extraordinary songwriter with a gorgeous voice.” - Rolling Stone

    “Paula is an original voice both in what she is saying and how she is saying it.” - Peter Gabriel
