Grammy Award-winning artist Paula Cole will make her debut appearance at Outpost in the Burbs on Friday, October 9, and Baristanet has a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader!

With her seventh studio album over a two-decade-long career, Paula Cole has created “7”, writing out her life, touching emotion.

“7 is a collection of songs that came suddenly and urgently. The songs demanded to be written and released, as if my subconscious needed to reach out to me; to tell me all I was going through. I recorded this album live, as an acoustic quartet. It sounds like a soft, soulful album made in the 1960’s and the songs speak for themselves,” says Cole.

James Maddock

WINNER: Congratulations to vbarber!

James Maddock, an Outpost in the Burbs favorite, returns to perform this Friday night and Baristanet has a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader!

The best singer-songwriters serve the song. The songwriter’s songwriter, James Maddock, who has earned the respect of masterful writers such as Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nile, has built his acclaimed legacy on humbly honoring purity of expression. Many albums in his beloved catalog are elegantly spare, conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way. But for his latest album, The Green, the songs guided him into recording the most eclectic, soulful, and imaginatively produced album in his career. “This is my best album. It’s an upbeat record with really strong songs and a lot of surprises,” the British transplant reveals. “It all happened really naturally. I just listened to where the songs where going and allowed myself the time to give each one a proper sonic home.”

Cariad Harmon

Cariad Harmon will open for Maddock.
