      Nashville Jazz, Soul, R&B, Pop and Blues artist Paula James Chavis grew up in Nashville, Tennessee and began singing at four years of age at the historic Episcopal Church of the Holy Trinity located in downtown Nashville.  She continued to sing throughout Junior High, High School, and College.  Her influences are many and varied, including Aretha Franklin, Sarah Vaughan, Gladys Knight, Nancy Wilson, Etta James and Tina Turner.  She of course has developed her own style over the years, combining influences from those listed along with many others.

      While continuing to engage in her music career performing on recordings, stage and television, Paula raised three children and was a teacher for Metro Nashville Schools.  She was the lead vocalist in noted Nashville jazz artist Sam Levine's "City Lights" Orchestra and has performed with American Idol finalist Melinda Dolittle, Amy Grant, Charlie Daniels, The Drifters, Shirley Caesar, Kenny Rogers, The Chi-lites, Arthur Murray and several others, including Dr. Dorothy Marcic, acclaimed author of "Respect" and, the John Birdsong Trio at Nashville's Rudy's Jazz Room.

      Paula has released her own jazz/soul CD entitled "Special Requests" and has done extensive Nashville studio demo and harmony work.  She has also appeared in local Nashville and national television commercials, performed in the Super Bowl "Halftime for Kids" and was featured in an Opryland presentation for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on CBS.  She was also a regular member of the Nashville Symphony Chorus and a soloist with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.
