Paula Harris To Continue Taking Risks On New Album
Harris was last year shortlisted in the International Blues Challenge and won the Monterey Blues Festival's battle of the bands. This year she was nominated for three awards after releasing debut album "Turning On The Naughty. "
Not bad for someone who'd been advised to give up on many occasions. Harris tells Monterey County Weekly: "I took the risk and it opened a lot of doors. That's the kind of stuff you have to do when you're an older artist."
