As a native to Austin, Paolo Villanueva was introduced to the art of musicianship at an early age. Throughout his adolescent years, he taught fellow band mates about proper chord progression, scale formation, and vocal lessons when needed. Paolo extended his range of voicing techniques by following a universal process in self-taught lessons and learned right-handed guitar while being left-hand dominant. With more than a decade of mentoring, Paolo now accompanies all genres from rhythm and blues to heavy metal. He is currently working on various recording projects using heavy effects on bass, guitar, vocal, and piano with all ages starting at a novice level to intermediate. On his time off, you’ll find Paolo enjoying the day with his two toddlers, Milah and Noble, at a local playground around Austin, Texas.
