The Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts
in partnership with the Lincoln Theatre
presents An Evening with Paula Cole
at the Lincoln Theatre
Grammy winner and 8 time Grammy nominee Paula Cole
has released six solo albums spanning an eighteen year career.
Paula has sold approximately three million albums and has performed with icons in many genres of music from Peter Gabriel
to Dolly Parton
(and many more.) Cole’s emotionally deep and thrilling performances are a trademark. Poetic and fiercely touching, intelligent writing makes Cole stand apart. Her compositions have been covered by Herbie Hancock
, Annie Lennox
, and Katherine McPhee
to name a few.
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
. Her song "I Don't Want to Wait"
was used as the theme song to the television show Dawson's Creek
and reached #11 on Billboard’s pop chart.
Cole is a scholarship alumna from Berklee College of Music
with a background in jazz, received her first record deal with a jazz label (which she declined), and has collaborated with many jazz artists. 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 receive the best Producer Grammy nomination for her solo production, This Fire
, Cole has broken boundaries with a searcher’s spirit. From her top ten hits of the 1990’s to her more recent critically acclaimed albums, Paula Cole
continues to write, produce, record and perform heartfelt, meaningful, lasting music that defies categorization.
All proceeds will be used to provide grants to artists and arts programs in Skagit County.
