Paul Cusick

Profile:
Paul Cusick ( aka Q ), British born multi-instrumentalist, started his solo music career in 2009 with the release of his début album Focal Point. Previously Paul had spent years as the lead guitarist in several bands (Gabriel, Ripped & Riversea), but in 2008 his new year's resolution was to step out from behind his guitar and concentrate on his own song writing and production skills.

Following the success of his début album "Focal Point", and motivated by his facebook fans requests for more music, Paul took a sabatical from his professional career, built his own studio and recorded his second solo album "P'dice" between January and November 2011.

Paul's guitar style has been compared David Gilmour, Steve Hackett, Steve Rothery and Steven Wilson. His songs draw upon the sounds and audio landscapes created by bands such as Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Porcupine Tree and Nine Inch Nails. However, the long instrumental pieces that are sometimes associated with the progressive rock genre have been replaced by catchy vocal melody lines akin to those evoked by more mainstream rock artists such as Coldplay and Radiohead.

Paul is a truely independent artist. He writes, produces and plays all the instruments himself, (except drums) and releases his music through his own label Q Rock Records.

In 2012 Paul signed a distribution deal with Burning Shed: a big progressive rock distribution center.
