Music: Grammy winner Paula Cole in town Sunday

Grammy-winner Paula Cole, who has released six solo albums over her 20-year career, will make a stop in Ann Arbor on Sunday, April 23 at The Ark in support of her new album “7.”

Tickets are $25 for the 7:30 p.m. show.

Cole has sold more than three million albums and has performed with icons in many genres of music from Peter Gabriel to Dolly Parton, and she was part of the legendary Lilith Fair lineup.

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. She 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.

She also 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 solely produce and receive the Best Producer Grammy nomination (for her work on “This Fire”), Paula has broken boundaries with a searcher’s spirit.

From her top-10 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.
