Paula Cole

Paula Cole - Sunday Breakfast - 2013

by John Platt
Eric Grossman
Since winning the Grammy as Best New Artist in 1998 (beating out Fiona Apple, Erykah Badu, "Puff Daddy" Sean Combs, and Hanson!), Paula Cole has shown remarkable resilience. She had mixed experience with record labels and took an eight year hiatus to raise her daughter. "Raven" is the third album she's released since returning in 2007, and it's a collection of beautifully crafted, personal songs. She brought her co-producer on the album, drummer Ben Wittman, to accompany her in Studio A.

She took a seven-year hiatus to raise her daughter as a single mother, then returned with Courage in 2007.

Paula Cole - Words and Music - 2010

by John Platt
Paula Cole's career started in the early nineties touring with Peter Gabriel, and by the mid-nineties she had a hit record and a Grammy. Her latest album is 'Ithaca,' and its songs draw from her more recent journey of moving back home and raising a child, and she sang a few of the new songs live at FUV during a conversation with host John Platt.
