Discography

There’s an Elephant in My Room

With the help of stellar Portland musicians such as Cal Scott, Richard Moore, Rindy Ross, Terry Robb, and many more, Paul has released his most ambitious album to date.  Fourteen original songs featuring vivid poetry, inspired guitar playing, and biting satire.

BASICS by Paul Chasman

Paul completes his reincarnation as a singer/ songwriter with his songs about life, love, dogs, cats, and  Muhammad Ali, along with his trademark “Pissy Songs.”  And for fans of Paul’s guitar playing, not to worry.  There’s still plenty of guitar. Harmonica too. 

One Man Guitar Festival by Paul Chasman

Paul celebrates fifty years of guitar playing with music from all phases of his career, from blues to bluegrass, Bach to Beatles, “real songs” and original compositions, played on two different steel string guitars, a classical, and an 8 string.

The making of BasicsThere’s An Elephant in My Room

With his new CD, “There’s An Elephant in My Room,” Paul Chasman celebrates his return to the Portland, Oregon area after a 16 year absence, reuniting with old friends and making some new ones along the way.  With 14 new songs that Paul made up all by himself, “Elephant” cuts a wide swath of topics and styles from a Dixieland band in the title tune to a bluegrass burner in “Frankie Said the ‘F’ Word,” to a doo-wop chorus accompanying  Paul’s ode to Sarah Palin.  Paul Chasman and the Awesome Portland Players have released a memorable CD showcasing Paul’s formidable songwriting, arranging, and guitar skills while reflecting the flavor of Portland’s vibrant music community.
