Biography

Placed #1 in Jazz for the 2008 Billboard World Songwriting Competition!

High Energy Jazz, Fusion, and Funk is the best way to describe Hardlogic, the precision instrumental ensemble featuring saxman, composer Paul DeLoria. Influenced by groups like The Rippingtons, Spyro Gyra, and The Brecker Brothers, the group features a cast of western New York's finest musicians including Adrian Dematteo on electric and acoustic guitars, Dave Pinto on Bass, Greg Gilmore on keyboards, Laris Ashford on drums, and Paul on saxes and electronic wind instrument. The group plays material drawn from an arsenal of original instrumental music spanning jazz, latin, funk, celtic, fusion and beyond.

Paul has played with contemporary artists such as Walt Scott (keyboardist with Tanya Tucker, Mindy McReady, and Ricky VanShelton), Nioshi Jackson, Reggie and Joseph Wooten, members of Take Six, Jack Pearson, JD Blair, Keith Horne and recording artists Big Mike and the Bootie Pappas, Deloria has participated in a number of Gospel, Blues and Jazz recordings.

Members of the band have supported acts such as REO Speedwagon, Marshall Tucker, Meatloaf, Keiko Matsui, Alex Skolnik, Phoebe Snow, Ricki Lee Jones, Kurt Elling and more in this and other groups
