Paula Cole at Eddie’s Attic

Paula Cole, Dawson's Creek, Eddie's Attic

Everyone probably knows the theme song to the erstwhile teen drama Dawson’s Creek, and maybe a lot of people know it was Paula Cole who wrote and performed the song, but did you know that the cast of Dawson’s Creek rode to the set every day on the backs of blindingly bright white, stately unicorns?  Probably not.

While up to one third of the above statement is untrue, what is true is that Paula Cole is the most unbelievably gifted singer I’ve ever heard.  I’ve shot a good number of shows for Eddie’s Attic, and like most people I’ve seen my share of music.  But I was totally unprepared to hear what I heard when Paula Cole took the stage at Eddie’s.  At a couple of points early in the show, I actually found myself sitting there transfixed and completely forgetting to take pictures.

I don’t want to sound curmudgeonly or out-of-touch, but I sort of don’t get at all why someone who can express the most beautiful, honest, raw emotion with her voice the way Paula Cole can is not insanely famous and someone like–I’ll say it–Lady Gaga is.  Apparently it’s all in the head gear.  Or the meat dress.

Check out Paula Cole.  Go see her live if you can.  Buy her new record, Ithaca.  Look at these pictures.  Enjoy.

Awesome shots, Josh. Looks like Ms. Cole brought down the house. The 2nd photo of her at the mike did it for me! Love your work!

These are amazing shots! You captured perfectly her passion and I can almost hear her voice in these photos. Wonderful! I love the one of her and her guitarist and the whole stage. Cool angle!
P.S. Agreed on the Lady Gaga thing. And I did know about Dawson’s Creek and the unicorns:-)
