UP CLOSE WITH CHEVALIER & PAUL
"I have playing since the age of 6, basically, by watching my grandfather play in church. I began to pick up ideas from him and musicians that were around and grew into my own.
Not to be deep, but I believe in music therapy! Music Therapy is when music has the ability to influence and impact a person’s character. It is also a form of healing. If I can influence and bring healing to the world with the gift of music, then my life would be complete! That’s how serious I am about my gift.
I have produced and co-written numerous songs for a variety of independent artists and groups both secular and sacred. Namely, Jason “Juice” Williams, Poetic Mindz, Tri-County Workshop Choir, just to name a few.
I’m also a solo artist and have released 4 cds: “Grown”, “Geek or Genius”, “Chevalier Presents Soundscapes”, and “Soundscapes II”. The studio is my 2nd job, and I’m writing new music as we speak. "
Paul, tell us what makes you tick
"I started playing the drums at an early age. My father allowed me to play for the choir at his church…and I haven’t looked since.
I am planning my first foray as a solo artist in the near future and if all goes as planned; it will elevate me to the next level.
I am also working on setting up drum clinics for aspiring drummers. I think music is an excellent deterrent for some youth looking for an “outlet” to express themselves."
