Event Navigation

Always giving special concerts in her hometown of Rockport, MA, Paula will unveil songs from her forthcoming, new album (due for release in September 2019!). She often shares such smash hits as “I Don’t Want to Wait” and “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?”

Cole was born and raised in Rockport, Massachusetts, the daughter of an amateur musician and a visual artist. After studying at Berklee College of Music, Cole got her big break opening for Peter Gabriel’s 1992-93 world tour. Record labels soon came calling and Cole found herself in the middle of a rising trend in female-driven rock and pop artists, which came to a head with her starring role in Sarah McLachlan’s Lilith Fair tour. While never reaching the commercial heights of her platinum-selling, Grammy-winning sophomore record This Fire, Cole’s subsequent albums continued to scale artistic heights. Cole’s sound has broadened in recent years, the songwriter delving into jazz, electronica and contemporary pop, but her stunning voice and melodic gifts remain constant. Her most recent album Ballads featured American jazz and roots standards from the early to mid-20th century, honoring such greats as Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, Bessie Smith, Bobbie Gentry, Sarah Vaughan, Miles Davis and Johnny Cash.
