Paloma Ramos

Paloma Ramos was born in Monterey, California, and raised both in California and Queretaro, Mexico. At the age of 6, her music career began with being cast in the lead role of the stage production and subsequent children’s album of, “The Littlest Christmas Tree.” Her director and teachers noticed Ramos’s “unusually mature” understanding of music and performance, and under their guidance, she matriculated into both vocal and piano lessons.

 

Following numerous stage plays, talent shows and contests, Ramos began writing her own songs at the age of 14. The same year, her relocation to Queretaro introduced her to the first band she would lead, Doble UC. The band became a Central Mexico staple while touring the region’s most popular venues and nightclubs.

 

A short time later, Ramos earned a top-5 finalist seat in the Miss Teen California Pageant, ultimately winning second place for the “talent” category with her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

 

Endeavoring to the next level, Ramos began studying under Metropolitan Opera singer and award-winning vocalist, Linda Purdy. Ramos’s new band, SAQ based in Monterey, soon won the Battle of the Bands in California.

 

Paloma then attended the University of California at Santa Cruz where she continued classical voice training, and then formed the Latin Pop group “Paloma and the Rubies.” Paloma and the Rubies performed shows at legendary mainstays including The Catalyst Mainstage (earlier graced by Janis Joplin, The Beach Boys, Nirvana, and more) alongside Rebelution and Collie Buddz. As a budding recording artist, her voice was featured on the worldwide demo of the Antares Harmony Engine, made popular by Imogen Heap and Jason Derulo. 

 

In her third year of undergraduate studies, she was signed to Sound Management Inc, an artist management company managing acts that include Smash Mouth, t.A.T.u. and Keke Palmer.

Through Sound Management she was able to write and record in collaboration with their network of producers, helping to form the sound you hear from her today. Also during this period, she toured with Natalia Kills of Cherrytree/Interscope records as the opening act for Robyn’s National Body Talk Tour.

 

Carrying forward with her reputation, she then formed the Bay Area electro hip-hop group, “The P-JAYZ,” which went on to release an album, and performed at Van’s “Warped Tour” at Shoreline Amphitheatre, selling out numerous California venues, alongside acts including Far East Movement and Andre Nickatina. During this period, she also started training as a vocal coach at The Keith Holland School of Music in Los Gatos, CA.

 

After graduating college, Paloma moved to Los Angeles California, where under her stage name, "Paloma Rush," she has been writing, recording and releasing Latin, RnB and pop music, and now writes songs for her own projects, other artists, and also for commercial TV and film licensing.

 

Paloma Rush’s songs have been featured on shows and films that include MTV’s “Real World,” FOX’s “Bones,” E!’s' “Keeping up With The Kardashians,” The CW’s "Jane the Virgin," Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club," E!’s "So Cosmo,” FX’s “Pose,” Lionsgate’s feature film “Hunter’s Moon,” and most recently on FOX’s “Our Kind of People”

 

Paloma’s vocal coaching firm boasts an accomplished clientele including label-signed and independent up & coming artists, Broadway Actors, ESPN sports announcers, and E-Sports casters. Some of her current roster include talent from Jojo Siwa’s new girl-group XOMG POP!, Frida Guzman, the recent winner of Season 25 of “Tengo Talento,” and she herself was featured on NBC Universo’s, “The Riveras,” coaching Jenny Rivera’s younger brother, Johnny Rivera.

 

Paloma also hosts the music interview show, “The Right Track,” where she interviews artists, producers, and music executives about their careers and what it takes to be a professional in the music industry. 

 

You can find Paloma’s music on all platforms with streams into the hundreds of thousands.

Her genres of expertise are pop, r&b and hip-hop and singer/songwriter.

Yelp Review: "I was in search of a vocal coach just because it seemed like I was using my vocal chords wrong and my throat was in so much pain. I called a few vocal coaches and Paloma was the first to respond. She was so kind and helpful during the consult. She explained that her schedule was too busy and I could either wait for her schedule to open up, or work with one of their coaches, Julaiah.

I was hesitant to work with anyone but Paloma because her reviews really sold me, but I needed immediate help! So I signed on with Julaiah and I'm so glad I did. Julaiah is so sweet and encouraging. She teaches me so much about how my vocal chords work and how sound is created in my body and head. She teaches great exercises to help with the pain in my throat AND we are working on my signing skills over all! Because it's all related, right?

I'm so glad I signed up. And thank you Julaiah! I enjoy my sessions with you so much!!"
