Paula Cole and Jane Monheit
Two powerhouse singers in one amazing night! Paula Cole has been hailed by Rolling Stone as “an extraordinary songwriter with a gorgeous voice.” Cole first burst onto the music scene in 1997 and won a Grammy® Award for “Best New Artist.” Jane Monheit has established herself as one of today’s best and most important vocalist-musicians, blessed with “a voice of phenomenal beauty,” by Stephen Holden of The New York Times.
Grammy® Award winning artist Paula Cole started her career as a jazz singer and now returns, at nearly 50 years of age, to pay homage to her first love of jazz and folk. A self-described “mother and human being first” Cole is a timeless voice not only in song, but for those who have felt pain, and who still stand, a shining light, against all odds. With a voice that is big, rich and gorgeous, a mind that is intelligent, and a heart that transforms suffering into beauty, Paula Cole sings for our enlightenment, for our souls.
Critically acclaimed vocalist Jane Monheit’s silky phrasing and natural knack for storytelling have earned two Grammy® nominations and established her as one of the most beloved and accomplished vocalists on the scene. Jane’s sincere and romantic interpretations of songs have made her a favorite in the jazz, cabaret, and Broadway worlds. With a range and vocal skill rarely heard today, she is as comfortable singing Lennon/McCartney and Randy Newman as she is with Ivan Lins and Cole Porter.
