Biography

Paul Bertolino is a Berkeley native whose self-professed obsession with all forms of pop music took root in early childhood. By his own admission, Paul spent an almost unhealthy amount of his adolescence watching record labels spinning on turntables.

Already familiar to many in the Bay Area as the longtime drummer for Persephone’s Bees and as the former frontman for one of San Francisco’s toughest garage-soul outfits The Sleaves, Paul first came to the attention of Oakland’s Antenna Farm Records with a show-stopping performance at the Cafe Du Nord’s Monday Night Hoot, way back in the year 2000. That night, amongst the nascent freak-folk scene that was quickly coalescing, Paul bucked the trend and played some straight-up folk pop that referenced Caetano Veloso, the Carpenters, Burt Bacharach, and even the Left Banke. It was music to our ears.

Inner Soundtrack is Paul’s debut solo record, a one-of-a-kind album channelling 40 years worth of psychedelic pop history. Keep an eye and an ear out for Mr. Bertolino. You heard it here first.
