Having developed a lifelong love for early music while studying classical guitar in college, Paul Mascott's eclectic career has spanned many styles from rock and pop to Broadway and classical music. Following his first exposure to lute tablature on an arts trip to London, he transcribed several period pieces for a school Renaissance project and subsequently incorporated period music into his daily routine as he hit the road in the professional world. After college, he toured North America and Europe as a guitarist for many Broadway musicals including Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, 42nd Street, and The Who's Tommy. Back in New York City, he worked as a studio session guitarist, producer and recording engineer, contributing to numerous commercial audio releases in many genres. He has also taught private lessons in guitar performance, music theory, music business, and songwriting to all ages and levels. His original recordings and compositions have received radio airplay worldwide and have been used in TV and film including NBC's series, Ed. Other credits include original scores for harpsichord and flute for the Edward Gorey plays, Useful Urns and Stuffed Elephants and orchestral arrangements for the 1990 European touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Paul is also the creator of the Syverb Impulse Response Library; a collection of synthetic reverbs which have been popular in post-production film and general pro audio applications. In recent years, he has performed as lead guitarist for the 60's theatrical tribute act Groovy Afternoon and as a visual artist, his work has been shown in gallery exhibits and juried shows. With his wife Christine, he resides on Cape Cod where he continues to write, record, and perform.
