Bad Press

Press Quotes:

"Last night was awesome. I promised my friends a good show and y'all made me look good. Y'all got me laid." 
Anonymous - Text Message from a friend the day after a recent show
"11:18 pm Paul Chesne leaves the stage to a crowdful of appreciative screams, backslaps, highfives, other peoples’ girlfriends following him and general mayhem."  
Jeanette - Losanjealous

"Hey I got to tell ya that Paul Chesne band has solidified itself as the official Fly Fishing music of me and my cohort....He never heard of you guys till we rolled up to bishop for some fly fishing and rocked that hes hooked and every spot we go fishing you guys are rockin the camp!...had my cd player and only cd played was white mans curse...."
Tessandori - Bakersfield

 "The bill featured singer-songwriter-guitarist Paul Chesne who manages to weld together the raw roots-rock side of Neil Young, the bittersweet folk-rock plaint of Tom Petty, the down-home twang of Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and the urban grit of Lou Reed."
Mike The Knife - MOG Blog

"The latest album from Chesne is a vibrant, life affirming, affair with a large cast of players adding to the mix on the roots blend of rock and twang. The songs are all by Chesne and he delivers a strong and purposeful vocal over the keyboard and guitar-led ensemble." 
Steve Rapid (The guy who told U2 to change their name from "The Hype") - Lonesome Highway

"At first blush the music of the Paul Chesne Band sounds like barroom bluster that goes down like a dollar draft. Stay sober enough to catch Chesne's wordlplay, though; The stuff on his album "Wet Dog Man" is a spit take waiting to happen." 
Kevin Bronson - Los Angeles Times

Paul’s a singer song writer in the vein of Gram Parsons, Early Wilco era Jeff Tweedy, & Exile On Main Street era Rolling Stones. Singin’, dancing’, down on his knees, screamin’ to some empty bottle or some woman. His backing band is solid, to say the least." 
Jake Drake - The American Underground Blog 

Los Angeles-based, country-tinged singer-songwriter Paul Chesne is the kind of guy who makes going out to local dive bars worth the drive. On Chesne’s latest album, White Man’s Curse, you can practically hear beer bottles emptying and people dancing to the memorable riffs and good-time vibe."
