About Paul Chesne

We are like here’s everything we’ve got. And some stuff we don’t. Lay it down on the line. Hopefully it will touch you in some way that promotes empathy for your fellow souls. It’s the futuristic blues or something. It’s an emotional clusterf*ck or epiphany as it were. It is the chaos and rhythm and wonder and ecstasy and the blues. Better known as rock and roll.
