Thank you for making such amazing music. It really touches the soul. Would love to own some LPs or physical cds from you. Keep being awesome!

I heard your song Bridges Burned on Longmire and I was hooked. Beautiful guitar work and lyrics. I play guitar myself but so far the chords to Bridges have eluded me. Do you use alternate tuning? I've searched the Web extensively and can find nothing. Please, please help me out. I'm desperate to learn this song.



September 28, 2015

Obsessed with "Bridges Burning" - just beautiful! Happy to have found your music.

I decided to listen to Paul's tunes. I was alone in my hotel room when I realized I was on my feet dancing as my wife walked in enjoying a good laugh at my expense. We both got a good laugh but it was his music that moved me. I only had a chance to review a few songs but will definitely purchase the new release on I tunes.

Hey Paul,
Love your music. Keep it coming. The new Taco commercial with Let's Go is cool. More like a music video than a commercial!

Hey Paul,

Great music! My wife, Heather, and I, have seen you play at some of the Wild About Wine events. You are very talented and I'm glad you are doing well. Your sound is unique and contagious and I’m certain it's only a matter of time before you are very well known nationally. All the best to you as you continue producing and writing music - and, good luck with your recent contracts. I'm off to buy your album on iTunes...

Thanks so much and can't wait!

You need to ditch the side projects and quit working with that clown Todd Fowler and dust off the guitar lazy ass


January 10, 2009

Great music from accomplished and talented musicians. Looking to find where you guys will be playing in the coming weeks. Do you have a calendar posted on the web anywhere?


December 4, 2008

Paul - Seriously when are you going to play the guitar at your shows ? The keyboard is ok but the same songs on your guitar sound so much better.


November 8, 2008

Hello Paul,

I was wondering how much it cost for ear candy? Please advise.

Another Miami grad...think you should make your way out to NYC for a visit- there is quite a following and know you'll put on a good show.


June 4, 2008

I just wanted to tell you again how much I enjoyed your performance at the Cincinnati Art Museum. It was a wonderful treat. I ordered your CD, and look forward to hearing you play live again soon. Best wishes for your continued success!

October 10, 2007

Hey! My friends and I graduated in May from Miami University and are huge fans... we were at Brick St. almost every Wed. and now I've been trying to find out if you're playing anywhere in Oxford for Homecoming weekend which is this weekend (Oct. 12-14)?? CJ's perhaps? (figers crossed!)

Thanks for ALWAYS taking requests and playing em' right away. I love seeing you boys play @ Millions! By they way, you do a wonderful job with "How to Save a Life" by The Fray. Keep on Singing :)

I can still remember hearing you 2 jamming in your basement and keeping me up at night even though i was 2 houses down! I hope everything is going well with you two. Say hi to your family for me!


February 3, 2006

Heard Porterhouse's "Seven" on Indy, looked up your URL to check you out. Looking around now. Cool stuff, keep it up.


February 3, 2006

I've seen you guys a few times now at Millions and MLT's. You guys are incredible. Not only are your covers great, but you have fantastic originals. Not to mention gorgeous!! How are you not huge yet?!?!? You will be. Well, best of luck!


January 19, 2006

Heard you at Chris and Jaime's wedding Jan.7. Best reception I've ever been to! Had to drive 10 hours home the next day but still felt energized by your music. Great website too...good original songs. Hope you don't mind a 50-something mom likes your music!


January 13, 2006

We've been following you since 1999. Still love everything I've seen. Just got your CD a couple of weeks ago...and can't stop listening. Your song, "Everything Burns Out" belongs in a movie. Thanks for always putting on a good show!!!


November 14, 2005

I heard you play at a wedding a couple of weeks ago and YOU ARE GREAT!


October 19, 2005

You are Cincinnati's best kept secret, but not for long! You are so talented and are going to be huge, just remember all of your fans here in Cincy. I've been to a few shows and had the great suprise seeing you at the COPS benefits and a couple of weddings. Keep up the great work and get another CD out, I've worn out Bad Parade!

I enjoyed hearing you play Sunday at Newport on the Levee. You have a nice sound. It's my kind of music.

Jill Fisk

October 17, 2005

Hi, Paul! I saw you on Sunday at the levee for the first time. It won't be the last. On my way to buy the cd! So, are you single? Usually not a groupie, but there's something about you...I won't stalk you though, I promise. I'm an "Over the Rhine" fan, so I like to support our local musicians. I sang opera at NKU, so I know how hard it is to suceed. Congratulations, you're there.

I used to work with these 2 clowns at Cintas. You guys have come a long way. I don't think I've ever heard a better song than "Everything Burns Out". Keep Rockin' fellas, hope to catch up with you soon!


September 2, 2005

Hey, im making the trip from Bloomington IN next Fri to visit my friend and see you at CJ's. Hope you play a lot of your originals because I love your work. I've never seen you live, but i listen to bad parade like its my job.


September 1, 2005

Piano Man Wednesday is sheer madness! Univeristy girls belting out Neil Diamond covers, DMB arranged for solo piano, all great stuff.

I first heard the band at a COPS benefit at Metropolis in April. Your work was great. Not just any band can manage to present a good Mellencamp tune.

Keep up the good work, and I'll keep finding my way to Piano Man Wednesday. My Thursday mornings will never be the same.

I heard "Boo and Shane" by luck while reviewing songs on and I was hooked. I'm listening to "Leave It Alone" as I type this, which is a very different song but also excellent. Good luck with everything.

Hey Guys,
I am from way out in California and I have to say, all of my friends here at Berkeley are really getting into you. Would you like to come west and play some shows together? I really really think you are on the verge if you are getting managed well.. your band has SO much talent, I'm jealous. Great work!
Thanks for the songs.


February 28, 2005

Nice show on Saturday at Millions. Hopefully something can be worked out so you can play Indy. goto
