“Paul Oscher plays the soul I feel.” - Muddy Waters

“... Classic Chicago Blues…his blues has the bite and gravity of the tradition he upholds.” - John Pareles, The New York Times

“… a deep satisfying blues experience.” - Critic’s Choice Billboard

“Paul Oscher’s a monster - harp, piano and guitar - plays slide like Muddy.” - James Cotton

“This is a man who has spent his life steeped in the blues tradition and it shows.” – Juke Blues (UK)

“This former member of the great Muddy Waters Blues Band not only channels the guitar sound of Muddy Waters, piano of Otis Spann, he’s got the deepest toned blues harp this side of Big Walter Horton and is a fine songwriter in the classic blues tradition. Paul Oscher is one of a kind.  - Scott Dirks, author of Little Walter's biography, "Blues With A Feeling"

Paul Oscher is a blues legend. A blues singer and multi-instrumentalist (harmonica, guitar and piano), who while still in his teens, became the first Caucasian member of the great Muddy Waters Blues Band (1967-1972). Paul lived in Muddy’s house on Chicago’s South Side and shared the basement with blues piano player Otis Spann. Paul played the Chitlin’ Circuit and recorded with Muddy for the legendary Chess records company, As Muddy Waters harp player, Paul Oscher inspired a whole generation of blues players including Rick Estrin, Jerry Portnoy, Paul Delay, and William Clark. Paul is the real deal, he learned his blues from the masters. He plays only the real, unadulterated, down-in-the–alley, gutbucket blues. He is not a retro player. He just plays the blues the way he learned them… lowdown and lonesome .
