The singer-songwriter genre only applies to singers who draft original songs, whereas the pop genre only applies to singers who use coke bottles as microphones. Savor the sounds of originality with today’s GrouponLive deal to see “Backstage with Paula Cole” in the Picotte Recital Hall of the Massry Center for the Arts on Thursday, February 23, at 7:30 p.m. The performance includes a Q & A session and an after-show meet-and-greet where Paula Cole will be available to sign autographs. For $13, you get one reserved ticket for best-available seating when redeemed (up to a $27.50 value, including ticketing fees).
Grammy winning singer-songwriter Paula Cole bridges the gap between artist and audience during a powerful and personable performance that invites fans into her creative process. The multitalented songsmith treks onward as a pioneer amongst female musicians with the same passion and enthusiasm that lead her to headline the Lilith Fair and become the first woman in history to earn a Grammy nod for producing her own album. Best known for the multi-platinum album This Fire, which produced hits such as “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone” and the inescapable “I Don’t Want to Wait,” Paula’s songs have soundtracked the lives of millions while making the Dawson’s Creek cast seem genuinely reflective. In the midst of her absorbent concert, Paula takes an intermission for a question and answer session, unlike most singers who stop the show midway to cook borsch. Afterwards, loyal fans can meet Paula to shake her hand, take pictures, and get CDs autographed. The Picotte Recital Hall's acoustically designed architecture lends itself to Paula’s majestic lilt, with 380-pound sturdy doors that seal in sonic freshness like a lunchbox packed by a matronly stereo.
