ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
John Paul
guitarist/composer/producer

If one would look up John Paul, the musician, in the dictionary, they would find- A world class talent with: melody blended with technical expertise that soars from subtle classical phrasings to ferociously dynamic staccato rhythms. Improvising abilities that navigate diverse be-bop, funk and rock rhythms with ease and confidence. Constant exploration of new techniques and styles, presented passionately through melodically valid and rhythmically challenging compositions. A vivacious love for life and music.

Guitarist John Paul began playing drums at the age of six. On his tenth birthday he received a guitar from his Dad and soon realized his destiny, to become a guitarist. Among his influences are the Beatles, The Yellowjackets, Scott Henderson, and Black Sabbath. This diversity helped mold John Paul into a multi-fascited composer/guitarist. By age 14 he began his professional music career and a few years later, he went on to study music and received his B.A. in Music/Business from the world renowned Berklee College of Music/Keene State College. Upon graduation, John went on to lead a number of Jazz and fusion bands, ultimately leading to the formation of the John Paul Group and his latest venture John Paul's Cyber Tribe. John also runs a full blown production studio called the NutHouse and teaches privately in southern New Hampshire.

 QUOTES AND PRESS

Russ Ferrante, Yellowjackets

"I was very impressed with his musicianship, also his versatility as an engineer, writer, and producer. John is unquestionably a very accomplished musician."

Scott Henderson, Tribal Tech

" The John Paul Group is exciting, high energy fusion."


Dean Brown (Billy Cobham Band)

"I wasn't prepared for it to be that good.The compositions have depth and beauty, the players are all first rate and the recording has warmth and continuality.Thanks for not giving in to the status quo""


Guitar Player Magazine

"This Top Gun fusioneer from New Hampshire plays with taste and a sassy sense of melody. He navigates syncopated grooves, odd meters and tricky chromatic tunes with grace and style."

John Stix, Guitar For The Practicing Musician

" The John Paul Group is a pop/jazz delight. Lovers of L.A. fusion should check out this Granite State import. Sassy melody, percolating rhythm and smooth singing solos dominate every song. This is as good as it gets."

New England Performer Magazine

"Nested among the land of the White Mountains is one of New England's best kept jazz secrets; John Paul's Monster Mash. Monstrous only in the amount of technical skill they display in their unique brand of fusion, they are indeed the stuff monsters are made of."

Henri Forget, Encore Magazine

"Their performance is electric in every sense of the word; high energy music played with astonishing skill and inventiveness."

 
The Grainery, Nashua

"...truly one of a kind. The crowd loves them, and they sure know how to pack a room."
