…A sound Paul Beaubrun calls ‘Roots/Blues’

Paul has recently been performing alongside and gaining appreciation from bands and artists such as Arcade Fire and David Byrne. He is working in collaboration with Jackson Browne, who has aptly named him “The Beast”, along with several other inspiring artists.  A sound he calls ‘Roots/Blues’ Paul weaves his impeccable guitar skills, music and cultural ideas, performing in both English and Creole, into a unique and transfixing sound.
