Paula Martine – Female Vocalist
Originally from Prestatyn in North Wales, since the age of three, Paula has trained to a high standard in Dance, Drama & Music, studying at The North Wales School Of Dancing & Merseyside Dance & Drama centre.
In early years, as well as the likes of Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner and Michael Jackson, Paula was influenced by her Grandfather, who would sing across the North West as Al Buddy. He encouraged her to sing and play the piano.
Paula attended two local Welsh Schools where music was highly influenced. She sang in many Eisteddfod across Wales and even had the opportunity to travel across to Norway.
As a member of The North Wales School Of Dancing, as well as Ballet, Tap and Modern Dance, Singing was also encouraged and she entered many festival Competitions with other dance schools, took part in the local pantomime “Snow White & The seven Dwarves” where she played “Grumpy” and was a part of the cast of Rhyl And District Amateur Operatic Society for “Kiss Me Kate” and “Showboat” in the early 90s.
In 1997 Paula auditioned and successfully got the job as a Bluecoat Entertainer for Pontins Wall Park in Devon, where she gained experience in compering, DJ work, kids entertaining, hosting as well as singing and dancing in the shows.
In 1999 Paula was made Head Girl at Pontins Camber Sands East Sussex where she assisted in show choreography and put together her own vocal Cabaret Spot. This was when she gained her Equity card and became Paula Martine.
From 2000-2002 Paula performed professionally across the UK and the Balearic Islands of Mallorca and Menorca in 3 vocal/dance show bands where the groups were even featured in BBC One’s Passport To The Sun with Nadia Sawalha.
Paula returned from Spain late 2002 with soon to be husband Steve, then put together their own vocal boy/girl duo Azurra where they performed across the UK and also became resident duo at Pontins in Prestatyn.
As a solo Artist, Paula Martine uses her performing skills that she took from her time in Pontins and entertains the audience as well as sings for them. Her passion for Soul music is a strong factor and Paula covers songs by Tina Turner, Paloma Faith, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse to name just a few.
In September 2012, Paula participated in the Katie Piper Foundation Charity concert held at the Rhyl Pavilion Theatre and received this fantastic review….
“Paula Martine was next up on the stage, wow this woman can sing and bring the audience in to the feel of the night with a night of fun that was now moving along nicely.
My particular favorite track that she performed was the Niles Barkley track Crazy the audience seemed to be enjoying it as well as they started to clap to the beat of the song, brilliant atmosphere and start to the event to help raise money for the Katie Piper Foundation.
Paula performed extremely well and she has such a powerful voice that can really hit some amazing notes, if you do get chance to see Paula perform then check her out.”
Paula now performs across the UK singing at Holiday Camps, Theatres, Weddings, Parties, Social Clubs, Hotels and Corporate Events with a fantastic reputation gained over the years.
