Paul Kype & Texas Flood
August 28th @ 2:30 pm
Coulee Blues Festival
A masterful guitarist, Paul has been playing guitar since the age of ten. Drawing upon the influences of guitar legends such as Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Paul has honed his skill to near perfection. He honors the songs of the greats by playing them with amazing precision and at the same time, investing them with his own intense feeling. After his solos, it is not uncommon to see people cheering jubilantly while shaking thier heads in disbelief and awe.
Originally from Abbotsford BC, Paul joined his first band " Legal Tender" at the age of sixteen, playing the bass guitar. The band was a popular band at local high school dances and festivals for 3 years when he moved to the far north for a job and a re-dedication to playing guitar rather than bass.
For the following 8 years Paul played in various bands working the club circuit of western Canada, honing his guitar and vocal skills and meeting many people who would become instrumental in the formation and success of Texas Flood in the years to come.
