Paul A. Hodges or Rev. Paul as he is sometimes called sings and plays the blues with a style all his own. His influences range from BB King, Eric Clapton, Debbie Davies, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughn and many more.
A native of Naples NY, he started playing folk music at age 14 then switched to jazz when he attended MCC for music in the early 70’s. In the mid 70’s music got put on the shelf in exchange for life’s hard road.
When the early 80’s rolled around it was time to get off of life’s hard road and music was definitely part of the new life. This time the music chose the man and it was the Blues.
Paul has been performing in and around the Rochester area for the past 10 years. He is either playing it solo or as a duo with one of the areas great harp players.
2006 was the year for the first CD-”Nothin but the Blues”. Followed by “Blues by Myself” released in 2008 and “Little Black Dog Blues” in 2009.
