More beautiful than ever, in a twenty-plus-year-career, Paula Cole releases Ballads, a twenty-song collection of American jazz and folk classics from the 1930’s to the 1960’s. It is dedicated to her father, Jim Cole.

Cole started 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 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.

Brooklynite Janie Barnett’s new release, You See This River, has been called cinematic Americana chamber music. From her native Virginia, to the New England folk scene, to New York’s highly competitive recording sessions, Barnett points to this moment in her career as coming home to her roots, while weaving stories of the persistence, romanticism, and the pig-headedness of us humans.
