Gregory Paul: banjo, guitar, saw, vocals, percusion.
Gregory Paul lures listeners through a beautifully haunted acoustic soundscape of folk-noir sounds and images...along miles of ethereal banjo, guitar, bow, slide, and musical saw. Following his popular success with the Rochester, NY based Autumdivers, Paul released his highly applauded 2005 solo album "Awake From the Flash", which contains recordings that span twenty years of GP's musical experiences. More recently, Paul's diverse musical accomplishments include fronting the experimental ensemble Inward Becomes an Anthem, and as guitarist for the old-time band, The Varnish Cooks. He is also noted for his unique banjo picking presence in Rochester's Indie-Americana band Hinkley. Paul generously collaborates with local poets, visual artists, and musicians-- and his music has been featured in a variety of multi-media projects. Gregory Paul has toured extensively throughout the US, and is currently recording work for a future release.
