For Paul Sottile Jr., music is much more than just an affable sound; it is a way of life. Born in Philadelphia, Paul’s musical journey began at the age of four, as he was inspired by those closest to him: his family and their eclectic taste in music. It was Philly soul, jazz and big band, classical, rock and rhythm & blues that was the soundtrack of his early years. Paul’s road to success began at West Chester University, where he studied both classical and jazz piano. Inspired by the greats, like Miles, Monk and Coltrane, Paul continued his studies and graduated from the University of the Arts with a BFA in piano performance.
Graduating was only the beginning, as Paul’s euphonic quest has taken him all over the globe, allowing him to perform in France and all over North America. Paul’s philharmonic talents have been held in high esteem throughout the music world, as his skills have allowed him to play with the top Jazz artists in the most prestigious venues throughout the Philadelphia area. Additionally, Paul’s extraordinary knack for music has offered him the opportunities to play for private audiences the likes of Joe Namath, Barry Bonds, and the cast of HBO’s hit series “The Sopranos.” Paul’s search for musical glory is not relegated solely to the piano, as his talents expand to the realms of music production. Partnering with world renowned DJ and producer Junior Sanchez, Paul has collaborated on and recorded on songs and remixes with artists Katy Perry Cece Peniston, Good Charlotte, The Gorillaz, Madonna, Morningwood, Mya, and Shakira. In addition to his bustling schedule of weddings, private parties and corporate events with the well-known and in high demand band, Jellyroll, Paul is Director of Sales with BVTLive, Philadelphia’s premier Entertainment Company.
