She has sold approximately three million albums and has performed with icons in many genres of music, from Peter Gabriel to Dolly Parton and many others. 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. From a small town in Massachusetts, Cole was raised in a musical family with whom she and her daughter remain close. She is a scholarship alumna from Berklee with a background in jazz, received her first record deal with a jazz label (which she declined), and has collaborated with many jazz artists. Cole teaches and gives clinics in a spirit of giving back to the circle of music and has broken boundaries with a searcher’s spirit. From her top ten 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.
