Paul has been performing live music in Toronto Canada for 20 years.
Latin, Jazz, R&B & Reggae are the four primary genres he performs in. Paul’s primary instrument is the guitar. His approach to his ‘hybrid picking’ allows his instrument to comp voicings like a Piano and connect chords like the Bass (as well as draw out interesting rhythmic melodies). He plays and scats his high and low speed lines simultaneously, and especially enjoys amalgamating the inflections of other instruments via the guitar such as: Sax, Drums, Keyboard pitch-wheel, Slap Bass & Violin.
Paul's approach to singing originally comes from a heavy Jazz influence. However, his rhythmic 'feel' comes from the world of Latin & R&B.
Paul is a lyricist and composes his own work. His music is organized in multiple genres. He enjoys blending and conducting these genres on stage at any unrehearsed moment. Paul's attention is focused on developing every aspect of live performance, production and marketing. From facilitating rehearsals & live performances with fellow musicians, to entertaining and hosting onstage for audiences in any formal or informal setting.
Here's a passionate player you'll have trouble forgetting...
Peter ‘Slim’ Eratostene
A natural to the stage, Peter entertains audiences with his energy, improvisations and rhythms. He is mastering his skills in the Jazz Program at York University to gain a broader view of genres that form our listening pleasure. Watch for Peter with his '6-string Peavey' or his 'Upright Double Bass.' Peter is fun to watch and listen to. He adds the kind of fun and energy that makes PHUSION a great entertainment package.
Raffaelle 'The Italian Stallion' Stanghi
(Drums, Backing Vocals, Percussion)
Originally a music professional for the Holland America Cruise Ships. Now an accomplished instructor, this Humber College-Trained practitioner has been performing for more than 15 years. His attention to technique intertwined with a natural sense of stable rhythm has made him the dynamic and confident drummer he is today.
Raff's main influences come from Jazz and Latin. However, his level of sophistication diversifies from the complexities of uneven African Rhythms, to the simplicities of House-Beats. Very few drummers sing, play and anticipate simultaneously - Raff can do it all.
