Paul Robert Burton
Paul Robert Burton is a multi-tasking, multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter/producer and audio-visual technician. Beginning his career some 30 years ago as a session musician, Paul has performed with Elvis Presley’s drummer D J Fontana and James Brown’s drummer Toni Cooke, and has an extensive list of musical associations with a veritable “who’s who” of the Australian music industry.
Paul performs a highly eclectic repertoire of originals and unusual traditional musical pieces. Blending blues, celtic, gypsy, middle-eastern, gospel, bluegrass, swing, jazz and folk rock influences together into an evocative musical soundscape. He combines rich vocals, traditional acoustic instruments and modern technology to perform music as the universal language of unity.
His current musical ventures include: promoting his latest double album “Wild Dogs & Strawberries”; playing at many festivals, ticket shows and a variety of human rights and environmental events throughout Australia and Europe, and creating a feature film for a recent musical he directed.

“The Pigtronix Infinity Looper is by far the best small looper pedal I’ve had the pleasure of using in my live shows. Its sonic fidelity ensures no loss of my many different instruments’ tones, and its intuitive recording of loops enables me to create full-spectrum dynamic soundscapes seamlessly. With the dual-channel functionality enabling both the ability to build loops and break them down, the Infinity has become a mainstay and valuable companion to my live performances.”
