Short and Sweet...
Imagine a rich combination of original roots and classic rock with dashes of prog, electronica and funk and you get the primal soup of Paul Lesinski’s music. Now listen to this.
Paul has been playing guitar for more than 40 years and cites Mick Taylor, David Gilmour, Steve Howe and Ace Frehley as his primary influences. Paul has been a singer-songwriter for almost as long but pinning down his influences there is more tricky. A bastard love child of Pete Townshend, Neil Young and Peter Gabriel comes to mind.
In addition to releasing three CDs and one EP of original rock and roll, Paul co-founded and fronts the Northwest’s premiere Pink Floyd tribute band Floydian Slips, now in its 26th year, consistently selling out Eugene and Portland Oregon venues. While touring with The Strangers early in his career, Paul played more than 900 shows in five years across 17 states in the west coast, rockies, midwest and Canada.
He has appeared on 20 CDs via his solo work and with his bands The Strangers, Isor Wallobee, colorfield, Rob Barteletti and as support for Matt Vrba and Allen Bush and on the Deep Roots compilations (6 and 9) and the St John's Poetry Sessions Volume 4.
Paul has shared stages with Storm Large and The Balls, David Lindley, Luce, Train founder Rob Hotchkiss, The Motels, The Gin Blossoms, Jimmy Cliff, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Berlin, Dread Zeppelin, Cherry Poppin Daddies, Jerry Joseph, and Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket.
His music can be found at iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Bandcamp, YouTube and ReverbNation. Paul’s full electronic press kit is at www.paullesinski.com.
