Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, Paul Kersten moved to Seattle, WA, in 1988. Paul has played in a few bands such as Window Works, Genowen, Dreamline (a Rush Tribute band) and, currently, Echo Raynes. After taking time off from the music scene to concentrate on family, Paul reboots his musical career with his debut solo album, The Long Road. The Long Road draws upon Paul's influences, like Rush, U2, Yes and Pink Floyd, to guide you on a musical journey through life's trials and tribulations. 'My songs paint a picture of life at a particular moment. Pictures of hope, aspiration and inner strength.'
