Paul comes from a musical and technical back ground having spent his
early days from the age of 13 playing drums. Starting as a typical
rock n roll drummer at the age of 13, Paul was lucky enough to play
with various local bands. He ventured into the world of professional
drumming in the early 80s and expanded his knowledge to include jazz, blues,
even heavy metal,
just about a little of everything to start understanding the true
nature of drumming. He also spent a considerable amount
of time in the studio learning various techniques of recording drums
and percussions. Touring was one of his favorite things to do as it
allowed him to entertain people live. Paulís touring days continued
behind the scenes as his career took a turn due to health issues. He
returned to the California bay area and started working as a stage and
production technician. He continued touring and racked up
considerable studio time. Prior to leaving California for the last
time, Paul began to
expand his knowledge beyond traditional drumming to include more
detailed percussion style playing.
Paul took a break from the music business in 1995 to join Corporate
America. He moved to Europe to hone his international skills in
Project Management and Implementation. However, his true passion
and calling in life is doing things that advance and/or entertain
people. Helping others and making them happy fulfills his dreams.
Having returned to the United States in 2003 with his wife, Paul
started to look closely at what his new vision would be. Due to
Paulís passion for percussion and helping people, having attended
many drum circles and
his recent call to reconnect to mother earth, the Rhythm Priest was
born. Paul has spent the last few years building his program which
launched in August of 2008.
Now settled in Minnesota, Paulís passion continues to be about
working with people, making them happy and re connecting them back
to the pulse of our earth. Paul believes that the earth has given so
much of its energy for people that the least we can do is recharge
her, and to do so, using drums. The more people can re charge our
earth through drums, the longer our earth can live and continue
giving us the things that allow us to live. Paul will be at various
festivals and will continue to give workshops with the vision of
with the pulse of the earth, one by one.
Paul will continue to expand the program to bring the Rhythm Priest
to as many people as possible in the coming years. He hopes to one
day be able to take the Rhythm Priest to our troops in IRAQ.
The Rhythm Priest is in process of recording several CD projects and
will begin making them available online as they are completed.
Thank you for your interest in the Rhythm Priest.
