About Paul Castelluzzo

Paul Castelluzzo, born and raised in San Diego, California, started playing guitar at age 8. Early influences were Delta blues artists such as Elmore James, Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters, along with cajun and zydeco music and (of course) rock and roll.

In his high school jazz ensemble, Paul discovered his love for more complex harmonies and rhythms. Since then, he’s devoted his studies to the language of jazz. These days, his focus has been fusing jazz harmonies with music that is more current and mainstream.

Along with his passion for jazz, Paul is currently in Los Angeles writing/recording with world-renowned producer Rodney “Dark Child” Jerkins -- giving him a balance between the pop/R&B and and jazz worlds. Online, you might have seen Paul’s guitar videos on Instagram.
