Paul Jenkins was born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, to a musical family. Picnics, BBQ’s, back porches, and anywhere else he could pick and sing he did. He started writing music early, inspired by the acoustic artists of the 60’s and 70’s. He’s been performing live on and off for over 20 years, in both the US and Germany. Now he’s here in the Pacific Northwest still doing his thing.
