Paul Sticca is an Americana (country, rock & blues) singer / songwriter from Western Massachusetts. Sticca ventured into music at the early age of four to become a classically trained pianist. Sticca studied at the Springfield Music Conservatory and later continued private lessons with one of the most recognized piano teachers in the area, Mrs. Ida King. Sticca put many miles on an early 1900's, road-worn, pea-green upright piano that was relocated from the salvage yard to the basement of his childhood home following its own adventure in vaudeville shows up and down the east coast in the 1950's.
