paula cole returns with ‘courage’



good morning! a few weeks ago i literally asked myself out loud – where has paula cole been?!? you probably remember her hit songs ‘where have all the cowboys gone?’ and ‘i don’t want to wait’ (featured on dawson’s creek) she even won a grammy for best new artist back in 1997 (sometimes more of a curse than a blessing) plus she was nominated for ‘producer of the year’ for her album this fire – ms. cole was the second woman to be up for that award! after 1999′s release of amen she dropped off the music scene – much to my dismay! i had been a huge fan of paula since her debut 1994 album harbinger and luckily i caught her playing live at the beacon in NYC probably in ’98 and she put on an excellent show (she has mad beatboxing skills – seriously!) i also saw her open for melissa etheridge in like ’93 – one of my first concerts ever!



much to my surprise i opened up a small envelope last week which contained ms. cole’s brand new album entitled courage – i almost passed out with excitement! she’s back after a seven year hiatus with a softer sound (now she’s also a single mom raising her daughter sky) gosh i simply love her voice – she could sing anything and i’d dig it! below are two tracks off her new album plus a small bit of video where paula talks about her latest venture! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!
