Paul Messinger is a poet, songwriter, vocalist, and multi instrumentalist, originally from New York, now based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He is known as one of the early proponents of the Howard Levy (The Flecktones) approach to playing diatonic harmonica chromatically, and writes nuanced, character driven songs in different styles, explaining, “Different stories require different musical styles in order to fully tell them”. His abiding passions include history and people, as well as challenging the notion of ‘otherness’, and his artistic lens is focused on telling the stories of the people(s) he encounters in the world around us.
