Paul Starkey

Paul Starkey on Lead Guitar is a player who has that rare natural gift to take a guitar solo beyond clichéd overdrive into an emotional and atmospheric vista that captures the soul of the musician in flight.

Paul  is the blues-man of the band, living and absorbing the genre. He has an affinity with the styles of players such as Eric Clapton, Robert Cray and Stevie Ray Vaughan as well as feeling the fringe benefits of embracing the licks of John Mayer, Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall II. Other listening favourites include The Arc Angels, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, BB King, Albert King, Dr John and Hendrix.
