Michael Bialas: Where There's Smoke, There's Fire: Paula Cole Keeps Burning Efficiently
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Two years before the official birth of Lilith Fair, my introduction to Paula Cole came through her solid connection to Sarah McLachlan. If the idea on a celebration of women in music hadn't yet been born, it certainly must have been conceived. Cole seemed like McLachlan's edgier, rebellious kid sister, willing to take chances with her theatricality and a booming, operatic voice that had the power to break glass. Cole opened shows for McLachlan in those early years, including a performance on March 8, 1995, at the Paramount Theatre in Denver that I paid $20 to see. (At right, a colorized version of the original Cole black-and-white publicity photo available at that show, a cherished memento from a collection that includes a dusty copy of her debut CD, 1995's Harbinger.)

Their ability to seduce and al ...

I've been told the Cowboy Junkies don't have any happy songs," Margo Timmins complained genially during the band's set at the Beacon Theater on Tuesday night. Actually, the set included one or two.

LEAD: As far as I'm concerned, the nastiest word in a rock critic's lexicon is ''bland.'' Not ''clumsy'' or ''crude'' or ''dumb'' or ''messy,'' all of which can be compliments, depending on the kind of music and whether there is some passion behind the mess. But give me something with a dead-calm center, a voice or an instrumental sound that

    More Details Hide Details While Timmins recently celebrated her 20th year of marriage she admits to having a crush on Bruce Springsteen. She has said, "When I got married, I told my husband that if Bruce ever wanted me, that I would be his. And my husband said, OK". She loves animals and she and Graham currently have two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Achilles and Drusilla, as well as Sparticus the cat. In 2002, Margo and Graham suffered a significant loss in the death of their dog Gaius. Graham described the loss this way, "On 20 August 2002 our dog Gaius was diagnosed with pneumonia. Margo and I had just finished a three week vacation. I left to come home for work on the Sunday evening. Margo noticed trouble almost right away. Though he was in hospital almost immediately, the disease ravaged him and his great, loving heart gave out in the early hours of 25 August 2002. For those of us without children, our animals often become our children".
  • TWENTIES
  • 1988
    Age 27
    She married Graham Henderson in 1988.
    More Details Hide Details She met her husband, an entertainment lawyer, in the mid-1980s after he heard the band's demo tapes and went to see them at Toronto's nightclub/restaurant The Rivoli. Shortly thereafter he was not only working to get the Junkies their deal with BMG in the U.S., but he and Margo started dating.
  • 1985
    Age 24
    In 1985, her brother Michael recruited Margo as the vocalist for Cowboy Junkies even though she had never sung publicly before.
    More Details Hide Details Initially Margo would not sing in front of the other band members, she would only sing in front of Michael. Eventually, Michael convinced Margo to sing in front of the other band members and they liked her performance. Michael knew that she had a pretty enough voice, but that she was shy and anxious. However, he also knew that Margo was really a show off at heart. "A little shaky" was how Michael remembers her first attempts behind the microphone. Margo Timmins has said about that time, "So when he asked me I was freaked out, but I said 'Okay, so long as if I don't do a good job you fire me' I didn't want to hurt his music, because his music is so important to him." It took a long time for her to get comfortable singing in front of an audience. In fact, many of the early shows had Margo singing with her back to the audience.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1977
    Age 16
    In 1977, the Timmins family moved from Montreal to Toronto.
    More Details Hide Details They lived in Etobicoke in the west-end of the city and Margo attended Richview Collegiate Institute in her high school years. After graduating from high school, Timmins spent her evenings along with her brother Michael exploring the punk music scene in Toronto that was happening on Queen Street West. When Michael started his first band, the Hunger Project, she would hang out with the band, take the tickets, and carry the equipment. Timmins supported herself by doing clerical work for her father and performing chores around the house. This included the worst job she ever had - cutting grass for her father. But by her mid-20s, Timmins had left the night life behind and was studying social work at university. It was also during this time that Timmins developed her signature mane of long hair. As she tells it, "As a kid I was always mistaken for a boy. I didn't get long hair until my early 20s. That's when I discovered hair was important."
