Paul Fields, guitarist and band leader from Riesel, Texas, was raised as an “Air Force Brat”. He was influenced by his father’s love for music and remembers sitting in front of the family stereo and listening to all the great old tunes. He got his first guitar when he was 14 and grew up playing with lots of different bands with his brother Tom, a drummer. His passion was rock bands. He would hang around any performing musicians, learning what he could from them. Paul has always had a love for blues and rock, and enjoys mostly Texas Blues, Texas Southern Rock and Delta blues players. He plays acoustic and electric guitars, sings lead and back up vocals and writes music for the band. He is the founding member of 10th Leper, formed in 1997. An ordained minister, he plays and sings on both of 10th Leper’s CDs.
