Nice things people said about my work

Nice Things People Said About My Work

"Each of Paul's shows here at the cabin were among the most memorable of the more than 85 shows we've hosted. I'm sure that others who have attended one of his shows will tell you, this is not one to miss!"

- Tim Piazza (Concerts at the Cabin)

"Paul played an intense concert, blending playful with passionate, songs of the road with songs of politics, shorter with longer, and throughout showing a tremendous mastery of his voice and of his guitar. It was musically rich and intellectually challenging, and our audience gladly went deep with him."

(T. Kohlenberg)

"Paul plays the blues in a way no other artist can! His abilities on guitar include percussion simultaneous with bottleneck and simultaneous with tapping, not to mention harmonica AND bluesy vocals!- Our audience was confused how so many sounds were coming out of one player ("where's the drummer??" asked one). No, he does not do electronic looping- it all happens right from his hands. Also a real nice guy- very thoughtful and emotionally self-contained."

(M. Lemaire)

"Paul Sprawl is a fine songwriter and very original guitarist whose music reflects his colorful experiences as a constantly traveling musician. He certainly deserves wider notoriety. The effort to seek out his work will be richly rewarded."

(Producer Lee Townsend - Bill Frisell, John Scofield, Loudon Wainwright III)

"Okay. The album is called Blue Suitcase, and it's on a German label. It came out in '99 and it's wonderful. In terms of the playing, you can really get inside what he's doing, in terms of studying the moves. There's stuff that he does that nobody else does."

(Artist David Wilcox)

"I really enjoyed working with Paul. I think he is a unique talent and I really dug his material. I thought we sounded really good together, and he can sure play guitar!"

(Howard Levy- musician Bela Fleck)

"Paul Sprawl is a masterful guitarist who plays with such expertise that if you close your eyes, you think you are listening to three musicians (guitar, bass and drums) instead of one. Although his playing is reminiscent of Michael Hedges, his style is clearly his own unique creation. His remarkable musicianship is complemented by a rich, soulful voice. He dazzled our audience."


(Laurie Oudin - Venue Owner, Homestead, FL)

"He is known for his guitar virtuosity - finger picking, percussion on his guitar and playing slide at full speed but it's his tunes that live with multiple rhythms that stop, drive, and bump but still pull you along. There is just enough structure to the songs to hold onto to without being bored and just enough flash to make your soul jump to keep up with the songs."


(Ryan Dettra - Cafe' Eleven, St. Augustine, FL)

"The most amazing guitar player I have seen in 8 years" - St. Augustine musician


(Artist Sam Pacetti)

"Paul put on a great show! His unique guitar style captivated our audience. He has a great repertoire of original songs and a voice to go with it. On top of it, he is an incredibly nice guy. We really enjoyed having both him and his wife as guests in our home. Highly recommend him!"

(D. Lamb)

"Paul is truly one-of-a-kind. If you like to watch and hear masterful performance of guitar and harmonica and storytelling - almost all three at the same time, Paul is your man. He may be singing, but he's always telling you a story. You'll hear "wow" more than once during the show."

(F. Snyder)

"Paul Sprawl is an amazing performer, powered by a set of mysteriously talented fingers, and a solid, informed, world view which permeates his songs and playing. A true original in writing, playing and singing."

(C. Bernhardt)

I've got copies of Blue Suitcase for the first time in many years!

These are available as part of the free CD offer, for a bit of extra money.

Blue Suitcase was recorded in San Francisco in 1999. It was paid for by a German record company and produced by Lee Townsend. It remains the most expensive production of my songs, followed by Dream Zoo, which also involved producer Lee Townsend.
