Pauline Reese has done a lot in just a short period of time. Aside from working practically every honky tonk and dancehall in the state, her vocal skills have become enormously in demand to kick off rodeos and sporting events across Texas with her crowd-pleasing rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner.” Pauline has been a very busy girl off the stage, as well, working Texas & Oklahoma radio, modeling at fashion shows and she is now sponsored by Michelob Ultra (Anheuser-Busch), Elixir Strings, Bad Company Rodeo and Martin Audiology, which also keeps her moving at a fast pace.
Pauline’s family history is steeped in rodeo and music, with country, bluegrass, Spanish and big band thriving at their small East Texas ranch. In addition, her mother, a musical director for the local church, brought that influence into the home. At age 14, Pauline and her family moved to the Austin, Texas area. At that point, she was introduced to many other styles of music, but country remained her passion. By the age of 15 she was singing backup in a local band, and by 18 she was fronting her own.
Now, at 27 years of age, Pauline has evolved as an artist and a songwriter. Known as one of the hardest-working artists in the state, she has shared bills with Willie Nelson, Gary P. Nunn, Freddy Powers, Kevin Fowler, Mark Chestnut, Johnny Rodriguez, Billy Joe Shaver, Merle Haggard, Johnny Bush, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Cory Morrow, Pat Green, Gene Watson, Jack Ingram, Sonny Throckmorton, Roger Creager- the list goes on and on. In addition, she has garnered a nomination for the “Western Swing Female Vocalist of the Year” award by the Academy of Western Artists, and has completed her first tour of Europe in the summer of 2003. Pauline received a lot of attention on her second CD release “Trail to Monterrey” and her third CD project “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” is now out getting rave reviews and quickly climbing the Texas & Oklahoma charts. On this project she has written or co-written eight of the fourteen tracks, including a duet with Willie Nelson. Her first single “One Less Honky Tonk” went to #15 on the Texas / Oklahoma chart and is now working the song”Cowboy Way” Which is currently in the top 30 on the Texas Chart. With her full six-piece band, powerful vocal style, and an undying appreciation of true-to-the-roots country music, Pauline Reese is a natural fit for audiences across the state and beyond- anywhere good country music is treasured.
