Brandon Paul - Rock Guitarist
After hearing Van Halen's monstrous tone on “Eruption”, I realized it was my destiny to play guitar, pestered my mom to buy me my own, and from that point on I never looked back. I relentlessly and single-handedly pursued being the best guitarist I could possibly be. To hone my craft, I attended Musician’s Institute where I studied all guitar styles from Classical to Jazz to Rock, and Santa Monica College where my courses included Musicianship and Diatonic through Chromatic Harmony. My passion and dedication as a musician are evident, and my journey thus far has provided me with one of the most honest and unique musical voices today. I have played hundreds of shows. As the official guitarist of Stonebreed (now signed with Rock Avenue Records, and MC Music Management), I have shared the stage/toured with National Acts such as Ratt, Extreme, Queensryche, Sebastian Bach, Thin Lizzy, Skid Row, Steel Panther, Warrant, Great White, Steelheart, Dokken, LA Guns, Lita Ford, Jackyl, Femme Fatale, Enuff Z Nuff and Burning Rain just to name a few. I have also collaborated, composed original songs and performed live with industry pro’s including Mark Hudson (Grammy Award winner and producer for Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Ringo Starr), Kip Winger (Winger), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot), Bruce Kulick (Kiss), Dickey Betts (The Allman Brothers), Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad) and Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters). Not only have I shared the stage with so many legends, but I have performed in countless venues, headlining legendary venues such as The Whisky A Go-Go, House Of Blues, Canyon Club, to performing huge festivals such as Farm Rock, Retrospect Fest and Scorpio Fest. When I am not touring, I am writing music, teaching 20+ students weekly and performing live with various other artists and bands at notable venues. I am proud to be turning out many soon-to-be pros, and helping others achieve their musical goals as hobbyists!
