Paul Brittain was born in Birmingham, AL and raised in Atlanta, GA.
He was raised by a single mother and grew up on the radio music of the 70s.
Paul started playing guitar at age 11 by emulating Ace Frehley of KISS, then he found R&B.
After graduating from Northside High School of the Performing Arts he moved from Atlanta to Nashville, TN, then he found country…..
Since that time he has been in the studio and on the road with national label acts of numerous genres.
Paul has many beautiful women in his life, so it was a natural progression for him to eventually be on stage with Goldy lockS. After a connection online gone awry the two discovered that they went to the same gym. Paul began playing guitar with the Goldy lockS band after seeing the parallel between her strong personality and that of the single mother that raised him. The guitarist enjoys the challenge of the variety of material that the Goldy lockS band performs for fans all over.
He continues to write for Film, Television, and recording artists while continuing to learn his instrument and expand his knowledge of the guitar.
