Jerry Paoli


Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Background Singer.


Hi, I'm Jerry Paoli guitarist, songwriter, & producer.

I have been fortunate to have accomplished achievements in my life time as a professional musician one I hope and wish for any who picks up an instrument and gets the dream, heart & soul.

Besides guitar I play and am fluent in Bass, Keys/Piano/Mandolin, and Singing (Lead & Backing). I can & have also played Dobro, Lap Steel, Banjo, Dulcimer, Sitar.

I am the guitarist for the band Timeless, a Milford, DE based band. Playing Rock, hard rock, danceable, cover songs; although being a former hard rocker every song we play no matter the style or genre it is always rocked up.

In my past I have played in cover & tribute bands: Unity, Shift (both 70/80 music covers), Departure (Journey tribute)

Original bands: Mourning Yeaterday, Dirty Black Halo (most prosperous act I was in), Soulkick.

I also played in high school jazz ensemble (Bloomingdale high school) as well as the HCC Jazz ensemble.

My range of style as well as instruments I can play not limited. I'm forever trying to grow and expand my ability knowledge and level of writing and producing as well. Although it has been sometime since I've had to sight read, if needed I can do so, but I prefer to learn the song and know it by memory and to play it with my heart as opposed to being robotic and playing from a piece of sheet music.

Here is a list (mostly with Dirty Black Halo) of my noteable and most proud of accomplishments. Please note*
the following list is not boastful, nor bragging or ego stroking. It's just a long list of what I believe to be notable accomplishments in my life, of which I am proud of, and there is nothing wrong with being proud of who you are or what things you set out to achieve in life. Even if you didn't get exactly what you were going for, it's great to reflect upon and be proud of whatever it is you have accomplished no matter how big or small. Just don't be arrogant nor have an ego about it, being proud yet humble. And this is a forum for such lists is it not.
