Paul Pesco on SoundBetter

Guitarist, Multi-Instrumentalist, Producer, Composer, Singer/Songwriter, Studio Owner and Engineer. Paul is used to wearing any or all of these hats. Since the early eighties right up to the present, Paul has and continues to contribute to some of the most iconic and recognizable popular music.

Paul’s resume reads like a “Who’s Who” of music industry giants including: Annie Lennox, Alicia Keys, George Benson, Busta Rhymes, Mary J Blige, Chromeo, Miguel, Michael Bolton, Joan Baez, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Jennifer Lopez, Jeff Lorber, Alejandro Sanz, Roberta Flack, Mariah Carey, C+C Music Factory, Dave Weckl, Steve Winwood, and too many more to name here.

Paul was the lead guitarist and musical director of the rock and soul duo Hall & Oates, He also performed the same role for Daryl Hall's successful reality music television program, Live From Daryl's House, and toured with Hall's solo band.

Suffice it to say that once you see and hear him, you’ll understand why Paul has been sought out by so many great musicians for so long.Although you may not know Paul Pesco by name, you’ve likely heard his music. In fact, Paul has been, and is still, among the most prolific and sought-after session musicians since he began playing professionally in the early 1980s, including several gigs for a young performer named Madonna, who recognized his talent and hired him to record some sessions with her.

    Paul is a master of his craft... no words can even express how talented and dedicated he is to music and creating the best tune possible. His credits speak volumes but the actual tracks speak more. Professional, personable, and simply outstanding.

    Great guy! Great to deal with. Paul is very high-spirited and has a discography that needs no introductions. Amazingly musical and as perfeccionist as I am :) Looking forward to working with him again.

  8. Review by Jonathan Mangum

    Paul Pesco not only is the one of the best players in the business, he is an amazingly positive and fun person to be around. To me, personality and likability are almost as important as talent-- and Pesco has a ridiculous amount of both.

  9. Review by Tony Drootin

    Paul is an incredibly talented musician and a great person to work with. I have worked with him on more projects than I can remember throughout my career managing some of the top recording studios in Manhattan. Paul is one of those studio and touring musicians you WANT to be working with.

    I have worked with Paul on many projects including The System, Pussycat Dolls, Madonna, actually Paul has been the guitar player on almost all the projects I have produced or ever been a part of. He is extraordinarily versatile and yet very specifically musical, intuitive and profoundly able in all musical styles. Superb musician and person.6 stars
