Kevin "Stik" Paul was born and raised in the city of Chicago, he left home as a teenager to pursue his love of music.

The Chitlin’ Circuit in the 70’s was a virtual training ground for him where he developed a knack for playing inside the poly rhythms that were the basis for many grooves found in popular Funk music of the era.

Kevin Paul never left Chicago and soon made a name for himself playing on sessions and at live shows. He became known as a producer and writer after a string of releases he recorded in his studio The Groove Grove, in particular for his instrumental compositions.

He currently has a song included on the Global Compilation Album Independent No.1's Vol.14, which debuted at #1 on iTunes Easy Listening Chart and is now an Amazon Best Seller.

Today Kevin occupies stage right in the dynamic show band Generation. He continues to compose and produce his own compositions and can be seen performing at festivals, concerts, clubs and corporate events.

Licensed cover of the Willie Dixon song made popular by Muddy Waters and some lads from Britain. "You Need Love" is a song with lyrics written by American blues musician Willie Dixon. The instrumentation was first recorded by slide guitarist Earl Hooker with backing musicians. Chicago blues artist Muddy Waters later overdubbed vocals and Chess Records released it as a single in 1963. The song has since been covered by other artists, including the Small Faces, retitled "You Need Loving". Le

Carved In Stone
As you listen to Stik's "Ixtapa", you won't care about genre blending, what you'll care about is that your head feels like it's going to explode from all the good things bouncing around inside. This track is a must hear. If you ignore "Ixtapa", you're ignoring what I'd place among the best of the best. Don't take my word for it, let this song take over your brain for awhile! You'll never look at instrumental rock the same way again.

Blucifer
To really prepare yourself for the groovy sensations put on your headphones, shut off your world and get ready to be lured into the Devil´s velvety tempting trap. Forget about technical gimmicks and effects that give the sound a fresh spice. The sound is ages old deriving its true essence and expression from generations of venerable bluesmen.
