Paul Geremia is a guitar-picking veteran, a true blues scholar blending jazz and acoustic country styles for over 40 years. Called "one of the finest blues artists" by Rolling Stone, he is a husky, soulful singer and a master of both the six and twelve-string guitar as well as a first-rate harmonica and piano player. He has an innate sense of the humor and drama of the blues, delivering rollicking songs of loving and living with a wink and a smile.
Paul has recorded eleven solo albums, and has been featured on numerous anthologies, including Preachin' the Blues: The Music of Mississippi Fred McDowell (Telarc), which earned a Grammy nomination in 2002. His superb recordings have made him a critical favorite and place him firmly among the legends who inspired and influenced him over the past three decades. Two of his Red House releases, Gamblin' Woman Blues and Self Portrait in Blues, were both nominated for W.C. Handy Awards. His new live collection-- Love My Stuff--captures Paul at his beston a stage in front of an audience, giving powerful and soulful performances.
