Since 2002 Sicilian Singer-Guitarist Paolo Fuschi has been sharing his heart-warming, foot stamping, hip shaking blend of Electric Blues, Classic Soul and Vintage Funk. His high-intensity live performances have been enjoyed everywhere, from Manchester basement jams to scorching Sicilian Summer Festivals.
Today, after more than 20 years of collaborations both in studio and live which led him to touring the whole country and Europe and performing on prestigious stages such as the London O2 Arena, Manchester Apollo, Liverpool Echo Arena etc., Paolo has finally decided to answer the question "What is my voice?".
In September 2021 he gathered cream of the crop musical companions Laurie Agnew (drums), Bo Lee (bass) and Justin Shearn (keyboards) at Salford’s Blueprint Recording Studios, where he recorded a 4 Track EP titled “The Outsider”: a collection of Soulful original Blues tracks which capture some of the joy and pain that the Manc-Sicilian has encountered during recent years, while he and the whole world were forced to reflect and readjust.
The Outsider EP is available on all digital platforms from February 22, 2022. In the meantime, you can see Paolo playing with his heart and soul in a club somewhere between Tibbs Street and Mount Etna.
Paolo is also part of the Funk Band "The Buffalo Brothers":
"I'm a huge fan of this Manchester outfit: they released an incredible album"
Craig Charles, Funk and Soul Show, BBC Radio 6 Music
"The Buffalo Brothers brought huge amounts of energy, sublime musicality and a very healthy crowd of fans to our night in East London last week - what more could you ask for!"
Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45s)
And, between 2014 and 2017, with harmonica player Mat Walklate he performed around the U.K. and the rest of Europe "The Electric Blues Duo Walkate & Fuschi"
"... solid rock rhythm ..." "... Mat sings with power and plays with great inventiveness ..." "... Paolo takes some nice instrumental breaks ..." "... this is a nice album ... "

"Very nice!" “I'm happy to show their music! "
