Paula Nelson is a passionate, charismatic, and exciting performing breaking in to the Texas music scene with great songs and a scorching band. Paula is also the daughter of Willie Nelson. Growing up immersed in the music, Paula picked up Willie’s way with a song early on and started playing at age 7. Although her dad once advised her, “Remember to watch everything I do and do the exact opposite,” she drew influences from his Highwaymen pals and contemporaries such as Kris Kristofferson’s then-wife, Rita Coolidge, whose bluesy, supple vocal style provided one of Paula’s earliest templates as she found her own voice.
The Paula Nelson Band’s latest release, Under the Influence, features the songs of classic artist such as Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Mickey Newbury and more of the artists Paula grew up with in a musical household filled with legends.
Paula tours constantly throughout Texas and the rest of the world.
