ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Philadelphia, the youngest of nine children from a
musical family, Paul began playing guitar at age of eleven.
Growing up he played in local bands. He was influenced by such groups as Led Zepplin, Aerosmith, and Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. Paul now resides in Florida with his two children, Zackery and Lydia.

In 1999, Paul received the AA degree in music from IRCC where he studied classical guitar music. He has since received many prestigious awards as he continues his studies, composing, recording and giving concerts.

This is Paul Zuniga, a man, his guitar and his music....

HELLO EVERYBODY!!!

Welcome to my first CD titled "ELIO." Most of the works are my original composition. Please feel free to play the samples. I hope you enjoy listening. If you do, I hope you buy one for yourself, and one for a friend.

THE STORY OF "ELIO"

My dear friend Connie told me that her sister and husband in Germany were expecting their first child, a boy whom they planned to name "ELIO." As a prospective God-mother, Connie was thrilled. Caught up in her enthusiasm, I wanted to send my congratulations to her sister and husband. Later, while strumming my guitar I was inspired to write "ELIO" my gift to them.

The lyrics portray a newly born baby, gazing into his parents' faces for the first time and saying to them,"You wanted me, you had me, so it's up to you to show me the rights and wrongs in life....."

This CD was produced, engineered and sung by Norris Weir, a world renowned vocalist and musician who tours Europe, South America and his homeland Jamaica. Norris asked if I had other compositions of the same caliber. I did, mostly instrumental and we included those on the CD.

After the recording sessions were wrapped up, we pondered for a title for the CD. "ELIO!!!!" We said at almost the same time - because it's such a cool name.

This CD would not have been possible without "MY FRIEND" Connie (Thanks for the kick.) Norris Weir for all his experitse and talents, and of course "ELIO" the main inspiration for the CD.

If you've had a stressed-out day, or just want to listen to some mellow, beautiful guitar music, Paul Zuniga's CD is a "must listen."

He is a gifted musician whose spirit and heart comes out in each note in a healing way. Most songs were written by Paul and "Elio" and "My Friend" are destined to become classics. A major label would be smart to pick these up -- and do well with them.

Guaranteed: You'll love this CD. Buy. Listen. Enjoy.

Just beautiful!
Not only was I thrilled, when I heard that I had been selected to be my first nephew's godmother. But Paul topped off the event with the "icing on the cake", when he created "ELIO", the song. You are an amazing guitarist and outstanding songwriter. Please follow your musical dreams!

Just what I needed to relax!
Fabulous CD! Elio was just what I needed on my drive home. This particularly stressful day was calmed by the soothing sounds of Paul Zuniga’s guitar and the gentle voice of Norris Weir. The instrumental piece of “Raging Waters” literally melted the tension I was feeling. It was like the waters washed it away. It even slowed down what some would call my “out of control” driving. The playfulness of “Fooling Around” and “In the Hay” inspired a smile as I found myself keeping rhythm with my nodding head. The title song got me the most, though. The words of Elio helped put “things” into perspective as I remembered when my son was born 20 years ago and the joys that he still brings to me. It was all beautiful. In fact, because of the long drive, I listened to Paul’s CD again, before I arrived home. Thanks Paul!

The guitar is such a beautiful instrument when played by Paul. His music is relaxing and inspiring and I use it with my students at school during relaxation activities. I relate to Elio because I have a son,Ian and all God's gifts of life need a song. Thanks, Paul!

Masterful songwriting- well delivered
I had never heard Paul's music until I played this CD. Every piece here shows his considerable musical ability- both on the guitar and in songwriting. But "Elio" really shines...it is a song that truly inspires. It makes you wish that Paul would write a song like that for your son or daughter. Paul, all the best as you go forward with your talent!
