About Francisco Pais:

Francisco Pais is a Portuguese born guitarist and a creative tour-de-force who never ceases to try to push the limits of what can be done in music. He has been exploring new music relentlessly with some of the most influential young lions in NYC and has grabbed the attention of such notable artists as Esperanza Spalding, Alvin Atkinson, and many others.

In his latest album titled "Verde," Francisco honors all the guitarists who have inspired and informed his completely unique approach to the instrument and compositions. He filters his myriad influences into a singular electrifying sound, utilizing a myriad of tones such as slide guitar, a screaming bluesy distortion, acoustic guitar, some drum’n’ bass guitar synth sounds with reverse delays and a warm jazz vibrato guitar sound complementing his compositions in this album.
