paul cataldoAbout Paul:

He’s been playing since, at age fourteen, he heard Neil Young for the first time. He found his adolescent sanctuary in the form of a guitar. He poured all his efforts into mastering the instrument with the songs of John Fogerty, Lindsay Buckingham and David Gilmour to guide him. Spending hours, days on end in his room, bent over, back aching completely focused on drawing all those classic rock songs from his Strat, he got good. He got really good and found himself playing lead with Shortbus, a Boston base cover band.

Three years of playing other peoples music was enough and he moved to New York and scrounged up enough money to stay alive and buy the Martin. Just in time for him to find the voice that was growing stronger within him. A voice that was destined to flow from him outward on a wave of strum and pick that told the stories of his life, his heart and soul.

His journey has just begun. Where his voice or his stories or his guitar might lead him is anybody’s guess. It doesn’t really matter to him. He knows that it is in the journey where he will find his true voice again and again. It is in his successes and his failures that he will find the character to keep perusing his dreams. It is in his loves and his heartbreaks that he will find the emotions that will have nowhere to go except out through his music.

Paul can be heard singing songs and telling stories about everything from alcoholism, war, poverty and jealousy all the way down the road to songs of peace and love.  You can usually find him on tour somewhere between Portland, ME and Savannah, GA.  His first full length LP “Rivers, Roads & Mountains” (2009) has been receiving steady airplay on college stations in the North East.  The LP was recorded at Quad Studios in Nashville, the same room Young recorded his breakthrough record “Harvest”.  Some of Nashville’s best known session players appear throughout the album as well as long time music companions Tony Montalbano and Eben Pariser of Roosevelt Dime.

  • While we were never invited to those heady Parisian parties of the twenties and thirties – to hobnob with Hemingway and Gertrude Stein – the idea of such literary and artistic gatherings sounded appealing. Drop by at 4:00 for food and wine, music and conversation, perhaps a poetry reading or a short play, a book-signing, an exhibit of art or pottery, or an occasional film. Dinner, usually a four-course set menu, follows about 6:00.

    porcelainIan and Jo Lydia Craven are world renowned for their handbuilt porcelain dinnerware, wall sculptures, bowls and vases.

    Jo Lydia impresses antique lace into each piece of thin porcelain clay before shaping the unique free form bowls, plates, cups, serving dishes and decorative designs that have been called “sensuous” and “romantic.”

    Ian then finishes the hand crafted pottery with his own home made glazes in creative colors which are described as “moody” – “gem-like” and “shimmering.” The final result of this collaboration has been called simply “elegant.”
