Paul Coady has been a regular on the Chicago rock-n-roll scene for over 20 years. Prior to his solo CDs, Paul released several recordings with the band Prairie Town. Since going solo with the release of 2009's "Quarter Mile," Paul has enjoyed critical success and steady interest. 2011's "Driftin' Years" expanded on this success.

Paul likes to describe his writing as "straight-forward storytelling, backed up by a raucous bar-band." The songs range from agressive guitar rock to contemplative naratives, but they all come from a place of grounded honesty.

2013's "Our Father's Sons" features the hard work of rhythm section Rob Fore (Bass) and Joe Klapka (Drums), collectively known as The Edsel Bros. Paul (Guitar, Vocals, Harmonica) is proud to have Joe and Rob join him as he tells his stories.

Paul's songs have been featured in the independent films of Chicago director Angel Abcede, along with intstrumental tracks Paul has created specifically for the films. Paul also produced a version of Ronny and the Daytonas' hit "Little GTO" for use in the Raybestos Brakes award-winning campaign for their give-away of a 1964 GTO. The videos featuring this version of the song garnered well over 150,000 downloads.

Paul is also host of the Loudcottage Podcast, a discussion of current events and arts.
