Paul Gilbert Releases New Single


This morning, rock guitar legend and ArtistWorks instructor, Paul Gilbert released the third single and title track from his upcoming record, “Werewolves of Portland.”


The single is joined by an accompanying music video, and both are packed with Paul’s signature shred-style guitar licks, gritty overdriven tone, and characteristic sense of humour.


As with Paul’s previous record, “Behold Electric Guitar,” the musical inspiration for “Werewolves of Portland,” including the title track, stemmed greatly from the process of writing lyrics, playing simple guitar melodies, and then expanding on them.


Since Paul began writing the material for this new album during the heart of the 2020 pandemic, it wasn't possible to get a band in the studio to record with him. Fortunately, Paul didn’t let that hold him back. Unlike his previous albums, he plays all the instruments on “Werewolves of Portland,” including the drums, keyboards, bass, and, of course, guitar.


“The process of writing lyrics, then melody, then guitar, then backing it all up with the other instruments is a wonderful discovery that really started coming together for me on 'Behold Electric Guitar,’” Paul explains.


Through the technical syncopated melodies, fluctuating time signatures, and a double-tracked Alex Lifeson meets Eddie Van Halen guitar tone on “Werewolves of Portland,” Paul once again affirms his status as a virtuosic guitarist, consummate songwriter, and master musician.
