My name is Paul Draper but I go by Shotgun Pauly.. or just Shotgun by most. I acquired the nickname a few years back when I was paying my dues, playing the local VFW's and small town bars in Western New York. I've always been a fan of country music, blues and southern rock. My father made a pretty good name for himself in the WNY area singing and playing. So naturally it was just a matter of time before I picked it up. Now like i said, I love my country music, but I also love to give it a little kick in the ass. That's why they call me Shotgun...loud & fast baby!

I come from a very musically inclined family and singing was part of growing up. I've been told that I sound like a cross between Chris Ledoux & Johnny Cash. Personally I think I sound like Shotgun Pauly ;)
