Paul Kappa is a guitarist. He combines virtuosity with a unique vocal, original songs and specially arranged covers, with electrifying showmanship, which has to be seen.

In 1994, he won the Liverpool Echo Arts Award for best newcomer, when he was frontman with Cat Scratch Fever, playing more than 1800 shows in six years, touring on the continent and the U.K. and playing Festivals like Glastonbury, and Cropreddy, promoting two albums, also clocking up appearances on M.T.V and just about every other major T.V. and radio shows, Europe-wide.

His new band , is called KAPPA, with bass player Martin Byrne, a cool, groove making bass player, and Tony O’Keeffe, a rock-solid drummer with a great feeling for his music, provides a fantastic backing

For Paul’s songs, exploring dark moods and bright sunshine, post punk, rock and roll, country music and extreme Jimi Hendrix-style late sixties hard rock freak out, and all other points between. A unique and potent mix.

Some reviews:
 “…..and the guitarist,[Paul Kappa], applies a topping of terse rocka-billy and spidery riffage of the most breath-taking speed and virtuosity via a gleaming Gretch White Falcon, occasionally spinning into a spring- heeled dance routine as he does so. It may well be unique, this music…..[his] songs are spiced with images of the lazy Texan sun warming the lemon grass, haunting affairs in rented rooms and trembling overtures to women called Claudia, and [ his] dark western swing takes sudden detours through cowpoke, hop and full-tilt acid rock dementia.”
Mark Ellen.  MOJO.

 “…. There’s a great adaptation of Motorhead’s heavy metal masterpiece Ace of Spades, with the added bonus of charismatic singer [Paul Kappa] (according to several besotted women) [KAPPA] are definitely a band to watch – both literally, and figureatively.”
Chris Marlowe,  Country Music International.

 “….and his own material, when he gets that guitar going, is stamped with the word original – and boy do they rock! It’s a great band, he’s an inventive guitarist, he’s got the looks and the style to make an impression…To be honest, I don’t think he knows how good the band are! Never mind, Paul Kappa has all that it takes, and that includes the “need” to perform…. As for a first gig, I haven’t seen many better, an original rock band with great songs, a frontman  who really can sing and has probably found what he’s looking for with that cross-over country/ powerhouse rock that makes this band stand out from the crowd, watch this space….”
C.J. Holley, Get Rhythm.
