Guitarist & Singer/songwriter based in Northwest Florida.

One of my greatest passions is making music. If I can make it while playing an instrument, it’s a beautiful thing.

Paul Emmanuel
Getting Acquainted with Paul Emmanuel

Hailing from Northwest Florida, Paul Emmanuel is an accomplished singer-songwriter who began his musical journey at the tender age of 5 by studying the piano. His musical adventure took an interesting turn when his family relocated to Texas when he was 13. Instinctively drawn to the guitar and saxophone, Paul seized the opportunity to master these instruments, spending hours locked in his room every day to teach himself the guitar.

Influence seeped into his guitar playing from the likes of Dave Matthews Band and The Beatles. As soon as school began, Paul embraced jazz by joining the school’s band, igniting his love for the saxophone too. Today, Paul’s guitar repertoire is enriched with music from prominent artists including Dave Matthews Band, The Beatles, James Taylor, and Tom Petty.

Away from the strings and keys, Paul is a family man who is blissfully married and the proud father of two beautiful blonde-haired, blue-eyed daughters. Outside the realm of music, he treasures hiking in the mountains, relaxing at serene beaches, and binging a good sci-fi television series.

In 2020, Paul released his debut single, ‘I’m Not Letting Go.’ The song, encapsulating a lively bluegrass rhythm, features a duet harmonizing over an ensemble of acoustic guitar, fiddle, a hint of a banjo, slide guitar, and percussive drums.

Beyond his musical pursuits, Paul is a seasoned photographer under the banner of Sarah & Paul Photography, specializing in capturing heartfelt moments between couples and personal portraits in addition to documenting captivating elopements. His approach to photography exudes the same passion and flair he exhibits on stage, making him a master of both crafts.

“I started playing the saxophone when I was 13-years-old. I attended The University of West Florida in Pensacola, Florida for three semesters as a saxophone music performance major. While attending UWF I played in the symphonic and jazz ensembles. I have played in various settings and groups over the years, but my main passion when it comes to playing my saxophone will always be jazz.”
