ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Paula:

With a professional career spanning over 30 years, Paula Hanke is a powerhouse of a vocalist who has performed in venues from Atlantic City to TV’s "Star Search" to NY’s Bitter End, and made appearances from Las Vegas to Tokyo and Saudi Arabia and contributed vocals to CD’s produced by Captiol Records and We ‘B’ Records.

On her new CD, ‘The Only Voice’, Paula collaborates with Grammy-winning bassist Eliot Wadopian and Jacob Rodriguez, sax-player for Grammy-winning singer, Michael Buble.


What people are saying about Paula’s new CD,‘The Only Voice’:

“Paula’s debut album showcases her amazing vocals, and empowering and uplifting message, with the accompaniment of world music supergroup, Free Planet Radio.”---The Laurel of Asheville

“This debut release is a message of empowerment and redemption, an inspiring junket you’ll want to take again and again.” --- WNC Woman

“ Paula has a strong, emotive voice, an obviously deep understanding of vocal dynamics and a refreshingly intriguing approach to her delivery. Her debut album is remarkably eclectic and deeply heartfelt and takes a big step toward reconciling old standards with newer vocally-driven pop in a way I’ve not heard before.” --- Bold Life Magazine

“The disc’s title track, ‘The Only Voice,’ will resonate with anyone who has struggled to listen to themselves amid the cacophony of countless ‘experts.’” ---Verve Magazine


The Songs:

‘Walk With Me,’ a re-style of an old gospel tune with added lyrics, invites the listener to “walk with her in love,” as one reviewer put it, her vocals moving from “a silky slow burn into a gutteral grit that will convince you it’s a walk worth taking.”

‘Columbus Street’ is a romantic tale about lovers who run into each other by accident after 20 years, and leaves to the listener to decide what the couple will do.

‘Home,’ inspired by Paula’s mindfulness meditation practice, speaks to the journey of moving from worry and fear to calm and centeredness.

‘Unwritten,’ Paula’s thoughtfully reimagined and highly energized rendition of Natasha Bedingfield ’s hit song, is, as one reviewer put it, “so original it took me a couple of minutes to recognize the hook.” With great abandon Paula calls listeners to release their inhibitions and live life to the fullest.

Paula’s original ‘Unanswered Prayer’ is a “don’t-forget-about-me letter to the spirit within, a cathartic wave of emotion and texture, full of both humility and hopefulness.”

‘Free,’ a Beth Nielsen Chapman re-make, is a percussive, energy-driven ride to freedom of expression.
