September 24 - An Evening with Paula Cole at the BeanTown Jazz Festival.
Paula Cole celebrates the release of her anticipated new album Ithaca on September 21. A native of Rockport, Massachusetts, Grammy Award-winner Cole received a scholarship to Berklee, graduating in 1990. In 1993, Peter Gabriel asked her to join his Secret World Tour, after her Imago debut, Harbinger. The fan base she built from two years of extensive touring embraced her next album, This Fire. It was a breakthrough smash, yielding the hits "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?" and "I Don't Want to Wait” (also known as the theme song to the hit TV series Dawson's Creek). She won the 1997 Grammy for Best New Artist. In 1999, she released her third album, the spiritually soul-influenced Amen. After a seven-year hiatus, she returned in 2007 with a powerful album titled Courage, her daily mantra.
