The melodic sounds of Ophir Paradise take you to places where the soul can relax and unwind. Her intuitive search for tone and phrasing gives new meaning, emotion, and uniqueness, to some of the world's greatest standards.

From Antonio Carlos Jobim to George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Michele LeGrand, she gathers all of the very best the 20th Century Songbook has to offer, and presents songs in a fresh, new, sultry and imaginative way.

Sighting her influences as diverse as from Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and Stevie Wonder, to Nat King Cole, Barbra Streisand, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, and Duke Ellington, Ophir enjoys music which speaks to the soul. She also writes and performs her own material.

Pianist, Noel Melanio, Bassist, Terry Hilliard, and Drummer, Brian Fishler, are the integral components which make up the Ophir Paradise Trio. Innovative and awe inspiring, they bring a skill and freshness to the music.

Ophir aims to bring nostalgia and meaning into the hearts and souls of people from all over the globe. She has often been told by fans that "I felt as though she is singing just to me."

Whatever the function, or occasion, Ophir Paradise, and her band, will take you on a memorable trip back in time to enjoy the greatest songs ever written.
