Paula Cole, Jill Sobule Hook Up For Summer Run

Paula Cole and Jill Sobule, two female singer-songwriters who in summers past might be gearing up for a run on the Lilith Fair, will come together for their own joint tour.

Cole and Sobule are slated to play some 25 cities on the tour, which kicks off on July 5 with an appearance at the multi-act Summerfest concert in Milwaukee.

With the absence of the Sarah McLachlan-fronted Lilith from this year's tour slate, more female artists are hooking up and heading out on their own accord.

Tara MacLean recently announced plans to take a few other acts on the road as part of a "Girls Room" outing, which begins on July 10 in Seattle (see "Tara MacLean Tapped For 'Girls Room" Tour").

Cole will be touring to support her critically-acclaimed 1999 release, "Amen," while Sobule, who performed Neil Diamond's "I'm A Believer" at the Songwriters Hall Of Fame induction earlier this month, will be out touting her new

LP, "Pink Pearl."
