Paulette Branson & Mixed People
“Mixed People” is a funky, soul fusion band with hints of rock and world music. Versatile musicianship, raw lyrics, and full vocal harmonies create a genuine, mixed musical experience. The name Mixed People derived from colors that bloomed out the whole funk and nothing but the funk. It embraces the love of self and others regardless of our differences and celebrates the beauty in us all. Mixed People is a Philadelphia-based band, founded by guitarist, Paulette Branson, in August 2012.

In April 2014, Mixed People released their EP Album, Shark Attack. Shark Attack is a fun, refreshing, guitar-driven masterpiece that has left fans craving for more. The music is progressive, and the energy and emotion behind this band will get you dancing on your feet and singing along.
