Multiple JUNO Award and Gemini Award-winning songstress Holly Cole will return to Halifax in support of her latest release, Night, for a performance at The Spatz Theatre on Friday, Sept. 13 at 8 p.m.

There is an intelligence and sophistication to Cole’s singing that sets her apart. She can imbue well-worn standards and eclectic songs with an uncanny combination of sensuality, innocence, originality and sheer musicality. Cole has a long and storied international career, having sold hundreds of thousands of recordings in the U.S., Japan (1 Gold record award) and Germany. These echo her success at home, including multi-platinum sales, three JUNO Awards and two Gemini Awards.

"She consistently proves that delivering a lyric is as much a creative art as writing one." - Rolling Stone

Cole’s voice: smoky, though not quite sultry; as sly as it is sexy; and brimming with adventure bordering on recklessness. And it bears an alluring touch of darkness, though it’s not without a mitigating hint of optimism.” - The Wall Street Journal

Ms. Cole invented her own niche as a chanteuse."     - The New York Times

Steal the Night: Live at the Glenn Gould Studio, Cole’s first DVD with bonus live CD was released in February 2012 to glowing reviews and features an assortment of hits and gems from her early trio days through to the present. This immersive DVD/CD package was the perfect prelude to Ms. Cole’s much-anticipated new studio recording Night, released Nov 19, 2012 by Universal Music Canada. This is Cole’s first new studio recording since 2007’s self titled gem. The quintet (bass, drums, piano, horns and Cole) has been touring extensively, performing material from Night as well as a broad selection of fan favourites from her more than twenty year recording career, including ”I Can See Clearly Now”, “Calling You” and “Make it Go Away.”

Tickets are $33.99 in advance and $38.99 day of show (including tax and service charge) and go on sale this Friday, March 22 at 10 a.m. only at  Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
