Happy New Year's with the Paul Chesne Band



bill featured singer-songwriter-guitarist Paul Chesne who manages to

weld together the raw roots-rock side of Neil Young, the bittersweet

folk-rock plaint of Tom Petty, the down-home twang of Jimmie Dale

Gilmore, and the urban grit of Lou Reed."

Mike The Knife - MOG Blog

"The latest album from Chesne is a vibrant, life affirming, affair with

a large cast of players adding to the mix on the roots blend of rock

and twang. The songs are all by Chesne and he delivers a strong and

purposeful vocal over the keyboard and guitar-led ensemble."

Steve Rapid (The guy who told U2 to change their name from "The Hype") - Lonesome Highway

"At first blush the music of the Paul Chesne Band sounds like barroom

bluster that goes down like a dollar draft. Stay sober enough to catch

Chesne's wordlplay, though; The stuff on his album "Wet Dog Man" is a

spit take waiting to happen."

Kevin Bronson - Los Angeles Times

Paul’s a singer song writer in the vein of Gram Parsons, Early Wilco

era Jeff Tweedy,&Exile On Main Street era Rolling Stones.

Singin’, dancing’, down on his knees, screamin’ to some empty bottle or

some woman. His backing band is solid, to say the least."

Jake Drake - The American Underground Blog

Los Angeles-based, country-tinged singer-songwriter Paul Chesne is the

kind of guy who makes going out to local dive bars worth the drive. On

Chesne’s latest album, White Man’s Curse, you can practically hear beer

bottles emptying and people dancing to the memorable riffs and

good-time vibe."
