Paul Pigat / Cousin Harley

Hometown:
Vancouver, Canada
Music Style:
Hot-rod rockabilly crossed with country blues and spiced up with bebop jazz.
Fun Facts:
  • Known as the “Motorhead of Rockabilly” in Europe.
  • Pigat is a very versatile musician who is influenced by a wide-range of music, and performs in several bands to capture the essence of each genre. He amps it up in hot-rod rockabilly band Cousin Harley, winds down with mainly acoustic country blues and roots band Boxcar Campfire, and expresses his vintage jazz and bebop stylings in the Paul Pigat Trio.
  • His band called Cousin Harley also doubles as Pigat’s onstage alter ego, which is used to describe the wild persona he embodies during his live performances.

Influenced By:
Les Paul, Jimmie Rivers, Danny Gatton, Blind Blake
Quotable:
“Being a well-rounded guitar player also means that you can sit in on almost any kind of gig. Up until a few years ago I had a jazz trio, a rock band, a cowpunk band, and all sorts of other things. If I had a chance to play everything I like, I’d be playing in 50 different bands.” – Pigat to Guitar Player magazine
