and The Beasts of Blues
with The Big Ass Brass
“If Etta James fronted the Tower of Power- and they were a blues band- THAT is what Paula Harris sounds like!”
That’s not a bad way to be described when you’re a mid forties musician that most people told to “give up”. Paula has shown a remarkable belief in her talent and has followed her dream, even against the odds. and it’s a good thing because she has blazed into the Blues Scene like a meteor! Currently nominated for “Best New Artist” with the BLues Music Awards, She also won the Monterey Blues Featival’s “Battle of the Bands last November as a warm up to representing the SanFrancisco Bay Area in the International Blues Challenge, (Held in Memphis, TN) where she placed in the Top Three Best Bands in the World-wide Competition. That was after receiving standing ovations at all stages of the competition. Though new to the Blues, Paula had already made a name for herself in the Jazz Community when she worked for two years as the resident vocalist at San Francisco’s Iconic Venue “Top of the Mark” With Grammy and People’s Choice Nominee-Ricardo Scales.
Paula now resides in San Francisco and can be seen performing her blend of impudent humorous Blues, original lyrics, and dance-able rhythms with her band of world class musicians, “The Beasts of Blues”! Her horn section is known as the “Big Ass Brass”. They released their debut album in June 2012 and are receiving wonderful reviews and radio exposure world-wide. Their shows are as exciting to watch as their music is to hear, explaining why they consistently sell out shows when they perform. This band has been called the “Hottest Thing to Hit the Blues scene in years!” Popularity such as this proves that it’s never too late to do something you love!

Whiskey Hill is a musical sanctuary for guitarists, instrumentalists, and vocalists of all kinds. Not only is the studio located in the middle of nature, just about every aspect of the studio is designed around the artist.
The room is silent, it’s packed with the best gear, but more than anything, if you want to take a break, just open up the window and the breath-taking views should be enough to zero you in on your target.There is nothing more natural than recording in a place that lets you get closer to your inner musician without the distractions of parking remotely, outside noise, and anything else that gets in between you and your music.
Read what others have to say about the studio:
“Had the pleasure of Recording at Roger’s Whiskey Hill Studios in Woodside and the result was some of the best work that I have ever had on me from my 40+ records. I recommend it highly, and had a fun time with some Vintage Gear, too.”
