With the crowd waiting in anticipation, Massachusetts native Paula Cole walked gracefully to the stage at The Triple Door. It has to be said that Paula’s voice is beautiful. Her recorded voice is wonderful, but her live voice is in a different league.

While the trio bantered with the crowd and each other, Paula disclosed that she injured her knee playing tennis. I enjoyed the back and forth; it gave a small-gig feel to the evening.

As the show progressed, Paula shared her musical experiences with the crowd. She spoke about singing with Peter Gabriel and receiving the five star treatment.

As much as she liked that, she enjoyed her own humble journey a lot more. Cole shared that she signed her first contact in a small cafe in Greenwich, NY. It was clear that those early memories were good ones.

Paula said that she has a nice relationship with Emmy Lou Harris. Emmy Lou helped Paula through the rough patches of success.

Later, Paula sang “Carmen,” and referred to it as a “love postcard” to all of the “lovers” in the crowd. She jokingly considered “Carmen” a five minute cuddle.

Before leaving the stage for the evening Paula Cole sang “Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?” and “Jolene” as a dedication to Dolly Parton.

I stated that Paula has a wonderful voice. Many times during the show, Paula Cole’s voice soared and enveloped the audience warmly.

On a personal note: Thank you Paula for autographing my copy of Raven for my lovely wife. A very nice touch indeed.
