WHERE HAVE ALL THE COWBOYS GONE to AMERICAN QUILT
Paula Cole is our guest on this episode of Art of the Song. Never afraid of speaking complex truths, her musical catalog is defined by honest and deeply personal lyrics delivered by her powerful voice. She has always had a gift for discerning the underlying humanity in stories from her own life as well as those around her, and channeling those emotional elements into captivating music.
On her recent record, American Quilt, Paula has applied her insight to American history and musical roots traditions by interpreting a selection of classic songs – each of which provide an entry point for rediscovering the overlooked stories and figures that populate America’s interwoven cultural lineage.
