Far Too Much History on Paul
Paul first hit the Houston music scene in 1992 with No Trespassing's debut release, "The World Upside Down." Though elder musicians around him were blown away by the band's raw sound and talent, the album failed to gain much recognition. This was likely due to the fact that Paul's voice had not yet changed and the band hadn't yet entered high school. After the rise and fall of No Trespassing, Paul played in an original band in high school and in college called The Roof Badgers . The Roof Badgers released two full-length albums, but stopped performing due to differing career goals. The Roof Badgers is available on iTunes.
Original Bands - 2000-Present:
In late 2010, Will Thomas hired Beebe Gunn Studio to record his solo debut record. Paul played drums and some guitar in the recording, and with the upcoming release of the record, Will formed a band with Paul on lead guitar called Grand Old Grizzly. In 2012 the band began playing shows, marking the first time Paul had been a regular lead guitarist in a band since 2004. Grand Old Grizzly is available on iTunes. In 2012 they returned to the studio to record Cosmonada, which was met with excellent reviews.
Cover Bands - 2000-Present:
In 2001, Paul briefly played in a band with Jim
Henkel called The Pop Kings, and with the inclusion
of Jamie Adams and the eventual addition of Bruce Jamison, the band
transformed into the Beetle,
an all Beatles cover band. Beetle plays the No Cover Happy Hour every
Thursday at The Continental Club and has won The Houston Press
Music Award for Best Cover Band in 2008,
2009, and 2010.
In 2006, Paul began offering recording services to other bands and musicians and has recorded projects with qanda, Wrinkle Neck Mules, Thrill, The Allen Oldies Band, Stayton Bonner,Los Lunas, Super Estrella de Tino Ortega, CHangoman, The Endangered Sea Lions, and The El Orbits. He also recorded his own bands The Small Sounds, Grand Old Grizzly, Katie Stuckey, and Thunderado. He also acheived success with song placements in MTV shows such as "Pimp My Ride," "The Hills," "Parental Control," and "Room Raiders." He continues to record both himself and other musicians.
