Musician Paula Hanke began to perform professionally right after high school (including a stint at the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre). Following a 1988 appearance on Star Search
, she made New York City her base — from where she's toured locales such as Tokyo, Bermuda, Munich and Saudi Arabia, sharing stages with Willie Nelson and James Taylor, among others.
Now living in Asheville, Hanke holds a CD-release party for her most recent offering, The Only Voice
(with accompaniment by Free Planet Radio). The launch takes place at Jubilee! on Friday, Sept. 7, at 8 p.m. $12 in advance or $15 at the door. A portion of the proceeds benefits Jubilee! Community Outreach. paulahanke.com.
