Cole Becomes A Diamond: Grammy Winner, Lilith Star Paula Cole Re-Emerges With A Stunning New Album And A Fresh Perspective


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Turning 50 in April 2018, Paula Cole is reflective and grateful, back on tour in support of her acclaimed double-CD 'Ballads', and celebrating the 20th anniversary of the album that put her on the map, 'This Fire'.
A grounded adult and a woman of substance, Grammy winner Cole is celebrating her re-emergence as a smart, funny, seasoned performer, a mother who took time off to do it right, a daughter who is honoring her father with this current collection, a teacher who is giving something back (as an active Professor at Berklee,) and much more, including running her own label - she's deep but doesn't take herself too seriously, and she's somehow survived the pop star/Lilith scene with solid footing. It's a breath of fresh air in a noisy world, and a reminder that family and community can create a far richer life than the relentless pursuit of celebrity.

Her current U.S. tour, which will resume early next year after a brief break for the holidays, features Cole on piano/vocals, Chris Bruce on guitar and Ross Gallagher on upright bass -- a stripped-down format that lets the audience in.

In interviews, it's clear that Cole's time away from the spotlight has served her well. She's got a sense of her bigger picture now, and can talk with authority, wit and perspective about the ever-evolving music business as easily as she can discuss feminism, gardening, healthy living, parenting, social activism or other such matters. She's a three-dimensional person who has finally found her North Star as she turns 50.

Whether she's singing her pop/rock smash 'Where Have All The Cowboys Gone' (from her Best New Artist Grammy-winning album 'This Fire',) or delivering a riveting jazz/folk cover of 'Ode to Billy Joe' (from 'Ballads',) her voice is instantly recognizable - soulful, emotional, comforting, timeless.

Cole's impressive biography speaks for itself - read it here, and see all upcoming tour dates, including visits to Massachusetts, Maine, Florida, Colorado, Utah, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and more: http://paulacole.com

In the weeks ahead, Cole will be featured in interviews via Billboard Magazine, SiriusXM, M Music & Musicians Magazine and more. A sampling of recent tour press follows, and additional coverage of 'Ballads' (recently praised as "exquisite" by DownBeat Magazine and "a masterpiece" by WFUV,) can be seen by visiting Cole's social media links, below the clips:
