Paula DeFrancis is a singer, pianist, and educator who hails from Alexandria, VA. She started out on the flute and eventually learned guitar and piano as well. She began writing her own and performing her own songs in high school. Keen to learn as much as she could, she sought out sounds from around the globe and earned a degree from Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of the Arts. She even served in the AmeriCorps.
A classically trained singer and musician, she has devoted much of her professional life to teaching others, but in the last few years, she has returned to performing as well, appearing on Silo Mentality’s Isolated from Chatter Above and releasing her own single, “Channel Home” in 2018.
