Paul Hernandez Trio
 
 

Paul Hernandez is one of the most exciting Blues revival guitarists emerging on the music scene. His style is groove oriented and roots inspired. Paul has created a sound entirely his own. He fuses his love of the Blues with his love of Blues Rock, Soul and Punk. He demonstrates a high level of proficiency in the traditional Blues genre, and renews it by breathing new life into the music. Paul's unique sound personifies the future of the blues in America.

Paul's early music influences originated with the Punk genre. Then, when he heard Stevie Ray Vaughan perform the Blues at the age of 15, it was like an epiphany - a defining moment that changed his music aspirations forever. Paul knew at once that the Blues was what he wanted to play. Paul's musical influences include: Mark Hernandez, The Ramones, The Misfits, B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Slash, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Frampton, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Jimmy Reed, Chris Cain among others.

Paul has shared the stage with legendary names such as The Prince of Punk, The Misfits, Marky Ramone, Guitar Shorty, The Chamber Brothers, Gino Matteo, Pat Travers, Powerman 5000, and Gary Ex. Paul is finalizing his debut EP entitled, "ZERO" composed of four tracks of Blues-influenced originals, in which he demonstrates his skill as a songwriter and lyricist.
