Paiste Artist Since
„I love everything I get with Paiste cymbals. I love the excellent quality that comes from a company with a history of over one-hundred years in business. I love their product consistency, and I love the many model varieties they offer. Those options have met my every drumming need. Whether I need some heavy hi-hats and a ride to cut through in an arena, or I need the thinnest, darkest cymbals which won’t overpower a delicate vocal on a recording, Paiste has always been sufficient for me.“

Paul has drummed for Owsley, Danielle Bradbery, Jana Kramer, Amy Grant, Jars of Clay, Whitney Duncan, Andrew Peterson, and many other Nashville-based artists. He spends most of his time recording in Nashville. “I love what I get with Paiste cymbals. I love the excellent quality that comes from this company with over one-hundred years of history, I love the consistency of their products, and I really love the variety of cymbals Paiste has to offer. In every drumming situation, their many options have met my need. Whether I’ve needed some heavier hi-hats to cut through on an arena stage, some extremely thin crashes that won’t overpower a highly-compressed room mic at a session, or anything creative in between, Paiste has always come through for me. I’m grateful to all the people who contributed to making these wonderful products. When I perform and record with Paiste cymbals, I feel like I’m joining my artistry with theirs in creating something beautiful.”
