Paul Kurrey / Bio

As child Paul was introduced to the love of music by his mother Lillian who was an accomplished cellist. At the age of five he was giving keyboard recitals at the Curtis Institute. By the age of 13 he was jamming with the likes of Eric Bazilian (Hooters), and Richard Ray Adler (Dukes of Destiny). In his early 20's he played in a Blues band and sold out venues like the Starlight Ballroom. In the time that has passed since those days he has continued to perform, write and record. Recently Paul has played a duet with Childhood friend Eric Bazilian and videos from the legendary DOBBS in Philly can be found on youtube

In 2010, Paul became a cast member in the George Manny produced documentary “Meet me on South Street the Story of J.C. Dobbs,” Paul's history with the venue spans many yeas that include countless performances, most notably with Jamison Smooth Dog and Stewkey [the vocalist from Todd Rundgrem's band Nazz]. The band was known as “Boom.” This group was performing “unplugged” long before the pop culture of today coined the term and made it “cool.” It was quite possibly the first acoustic rock band in Philly.

Paul is known for his tell it like it is, in-your-face street heart lyric lines that are masked by beautiful melodic tunes.How many die-hard Philly music fans can say “I saw Bruce in a coffee house” or “I saw Nirvana at Dobbs” or “remember when we saw Billy Joel in that piano bar?” Come to the next show and you will say "I saw Paul Kurrey solo."
