Paul has performed and recorded with various artists including Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Carly Simon, Lauryn Hill, M-People, Steve Gadd, Toots Thielemans, Ace Frehley, and Enrique Iglesias, to name just a few. Paul is also tours and records with Nena, and has been a member of her band since 2001. He has received two platinum and two gold records for his work with Nena, including those that he was awarded as one of the co-authors of Nenas "Willst du mit mir gehen" record.
From the first day Paul picked up a bass at the age of12 friends and family noticed that the lefty had his own approach to the instrument literally upside down and backwards (left handed bass, strung right handed). It soon became apparent that his unorthodox approach to playing the instrument would in no way slow down this determined player´s progress. Paul went on to become one of the best players in his local NY/NJ scene and eventually to international success with some of the worlds finest artists.
Paul spends his time off from the Nena band in his home state of New Jersey, recording, composing, producing and mixing for local artists in his own studio. This also allows Paul to create and experiment with his own songs as well as the songs of others.
Paulo Di Leo: "The Fireface 800 is the hub of my project studio. With the huge number of I/Os, great sounding preamps, and the incredible flexibility of TotalMix, there's virtually no situation I can't handle. And the sound stands up to converters costing a lot more."
Thank you, Paul!
