More about Paula:
Paula Byrne's voice sounds like chilled champagne on a hot summer day. She moves easily between songs that are lush and
beautiful to highly rhythmic, wild rides. Her sense of humor, revival of obscure songs and new twists on old standards keeps the audience
engaged and enraptured. Paula is omnivorous in her choice of musicians with whom to perform, including many of Portland's best: Randy Porter,
Gordon Lee, George Mitchell, Craig Bidondo, Joe Millward, Ron Steen, Dennis Caiazza, Rich Turnoy, Glenn Holstrom, Andrea Niemiec,
Kevin Dietz, Christopher Woitach and Darin Clendenin.
Born to a jazz drummer (father) and figure skater (mother), she has been a lover of music and movement since birth. Paulateaches dance locally
and internationally, and has been a moving force in the dance scene in Portland since 1996. She is the creator of the Wild Grace™ and DanceQuest™
movement meditations, and is Founder of SomaSpace ~ Studio of Movement Arts in NE PDX.
Paula was an Oracle software developer in the corporate high-tech field for 20 years. She left that career in 2005 to devote herself full-time to her soul-work
in assisting people to remember and reconnect to the body as a source of wisdom, pleasure and joy in the present moment.
