Paula Cole: Courage...

Out of intuition, I went to Paula Cole's website. In previous years it was left dormant, a time-capsule of a once glimmering career. It has since been revived with her latest album, Courage. These deeply emotional melodies have become all the richer from her time off to raise a fragile child, pursue academia, and refocus on what is important to her. I feel as though I've grown along with her on her voyage and can relate to the disillusionment that can be found in the grind-shop that is careerism, and the personal joy and satisfaction in making art. I praise Paula Cole's courage and her long-awaited return.
