Paul Erdman has been singing his whole life. He picked up guitar the summer before he started high school and began writing songs shortly after. He has released 5 albums along with a few singles over the last 6 years.
Paul’s style blends true country songwriting with blues, rock and roll and pop to create a sound that is new and different while being recognizable and classic. He has been compared to a blending of Zac Brown, Tom Petty, John Mayer and Bruce Springsteen.
Paul began playing professionally around the age of 16. His first big gig was in 2006 when he was hired to perform at Cedar Point, an amusement park in north-central Ohio. This was the first of three contracts with the park! Music, and a girl, took him to Pittsburgh, PA and then to eastern Tennessee. Both provided different but incredible musical experiences. In 2008 Paul was hired as a solo guitarist for Holland America Cruise Line. While working for the cruise line Paul entertained 5 hours a night 7 days a week and got paid to see the world. Performing as a soloist forced him to expand his skills and provided the confidence and drive to start his own band and build his own brand.
Paul has had the opportunity to work with musicians from the bands of Reba McEntire, Brooks and Dunn, Faith Hill, Jewel and The Wallflowers. Paul has performed worldwide and stateside; New York City, Nashville, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, and Chicago. Paul has opened for acts such as: Loverboy, Eddie Money, Don Felder of the Eagles, Eric Paslay, Chris Cagle, Cracker, Justin Moore and Red Wanting Blue.
Paul and his band are currently working on a new album and are looking forward to sharing the new music soon!!
