PAULA & JAKE VALOIS
Paula Valois has been singing and playing guitar since she was a kid. As a teenager, she discovered Kris Kristofferson and wore that record out learning to play his songs. She loves the folk root sounds of Nancy Griffith and Brandi Carlisle, and the bluesy sound of Patti Griffin. Jacob Valois is a musician and teacher from Hawk Junction Ontario.
Jacob started playing at a very young age taking piano lessons with Joanne Poisson. He later left the piano for the guitar and started playing in several different local bands, then began studying music and jazz guitar at Algoma University and Laurentian University. Jacob is now regularly performing with many local musicians, and sharing his love for jazz music in Sault Ste. Marie through his playing and through his private teaching.
