Paul’s Grandfather came to be in October 2008 at Fredonia State College after three female singer-songwriters; Kate Preston, Rebecca Ryskalczyk, and Karrah Teague hit it off and decided to start a band. With three part female harmonies, a guitar, piano, kick-drum, and a tambourine the girls began to develop a unique musical style that reflected their different personalities.
Shortly after, they began recording their EP, titled "No Home" with sound recording majors Jon Gernhart and Brandon Battles. It was around that time that they met drummer Bobby Frisk and cellist Paul Swenson. At that moment they had become a five piece. "No Home" is their first recording and they will spend the summer traveling around the North East in a five passenger van to promote it. The band is not yet signed, but works with a small indie label called Whaleplane, also from Fredonia.
Whether playing larger venues while supporting such acts as Brothers and Sisters, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and Mock Orange or performing at intimate house shows, Paul’s Grandfather has a creative and unique passion for performing and songwriting. The band is taking every opportunity that comes their way and pressing forward. Between their plans of recording a full length album this fall, and a great amount of touring in the future, there is definitely much more to be heard from this up and coming band.
