Paulette Meier is a singer/songwriter, whose strong alto voice has stirred hearts and opened minds for over 30 years in the pursuit of a peaceful, just and sustainable world. Her work as a peace educator led to her award winning CD, Come Join the Circle, LessonSongs for Peacemaking, which is used in classrooms and families around the country to inspire children and help them learn the ways of non-violence.
An active Quaker, Paulette was moved to set quotations from texts of early Quaker leaders to song and record them inchant-like, a cappella style. The resulting CD, Timeless Quaker Wisdom in Plainsong,serves both as an educative tool in the roots of Quaker spirituality and as a meditative focus in spiritual practice.
Paulette also sings her other originals, either solo or with her Cincinnati based folk group, Just Earth, wherever a song is needed to shed light, promote healing, unify voices, speak truth, and lift spirits! Their new CD is due out in January 2017.
"Paulette Meier's rich voice, unforced singing, meditative pacing, and natural cadences bring the hearer to that inner peace where truth abides." - Doug Gwyn, writer, minister, musician and Quaker scholar
"Paulette's assembly program at our school was a most beautiful blending of entertainment and education around social-emotional issues that kept both younger and older children excitedly engaged." - - Tim Mammel, teacher, Green Street Friends School, Philadelphia
