Lee Minton Signature Series

Jaimee Paul and Leif Shires

Jaimee and Leif are internationally acclaimed artists who make old songs shine with the luster of a current radio hit, and make the legendary music of yesterday into the current obsessions of today’s music lover. Raised in Southern Illinois, and in the church choir, Jaimee’s style is deeply influenced by Gospel, Blues and Jazz music that was cultivated in her early years. Jaimee headed to Nashville, Tenn. to attend Belmont University. Her passion was singing and she moved quickly into becoming a first call studio session singer, as well as a background vocalist with such artists as country powerhouse Wynonna, The Judd’s and Kelly Clarkson. Industry superstars such as Bill Gaither, David Foster and Michael Omartian, recognized her world class talent and it wasn’t long until she took the stage as her own.

Leif Shires, a trumpet player, raised in California’s San Joaquin Valley, began his professional career at an early age, and in 2004 he moved to Nashville. His first discovery in Nashville was a sultry singer looking for a trumpet player, namely Jaimee Paul. Leif’s career has continued to flourish as he has worked with many different artists spanning a variety of genres, including Kelly Clarkson, Jack White, Shania Twain, Barry Gibb, Brett Eldredge, Eliza & The Bear, Jaci Velasquez, Wanda Jackson, Toby Mac, TG Sheppard, and a part of the most influential horn section in music history, The Memphis Horns.
