After 6 years of writing songs while her babies napped and spending the wee hours of the night tracking and recording, Flo Paris has stepped out with new songs, a new record, and an even stronger determination to play.
The early 2000s were spent playing small coffee shops and joining the successful Chattanooga based progressive rock band, "Glass Hammer."
During her time with GH, Flo lent her angelic background vocals to numerous recordings as well as live DVDs and an appearance at the North East Art Rock Festival in New Jersey in 2003.
"Practice Room" was the first full-length record and was produced by two of the members of Glass Hammer.
She moved back to her home town of San Luis Obispo, CA with her first record and in 2006 single-handedly promoted and pulled off a CD release show, filling 200 seats and gaining rave reviews, all while 9 months pregnant with her second daughter.
Moving to Nashville and also moving away from the Christian music industry for her second album wasn't easy, but she has gained an entirely new audience while managing to keep her loyal fans with her sophomore record, "Coming Around", released in June 2009.
She had only been in town a year, and already packed the house at the "Coming Around" release show inviting artists such as Sandra McCracken, Katy and Kenny Hutson, and Eric Brown to share the stage and lend their support.
The CD release was followed by a cross country tour, opening for L.A. based "Lakes" at Hotel Cafe and playing with numerous artists in town, such as Andrew Osenga, Nick Flora, Drew and Emily Deloach.
She is currently working on a record with producer Kenny Hutson (formerly of Vigilantes of Love, Over the Rhine) and has recently been voted into the #1 slot in the Lilith Fair Local Talent Search for the Nashville area.
