St. Paul and the Korg EM-1 Paul Dunnaville is an accomplished drummer, producer and educator. Born in Queens, New York in 1975, he now resides Philadelphia, PA. As a child, Dunnaville absorbed the early raw sound of hip-hop from the early pioneer DJ’s Red Alert and Chuck Chillout. It wasn’t until his teenage years that he was exposed to the trumpet, and then later the drums, which became his instrument of choice. He played drums in the church, and later on in college he participated in several bands, where he learned how to compose, arrange and produce. It was in college at Virginia Tech, where his musical ear started to develop. In 2004, a female vocalist performed one of his first songs at a talent show, and won. A year or so later, he became the drummer for True Sound, a hip hop band local to Blacksburg, VA, and was producing tracks with the group’s lead man Jah I Witness Emcee. After graduating with a BA in Communications, Dunnaville left the group in 2000, and moved to Philadelphia. In Philadelphia, he spent time in the studio working with independent rap artists. As a freelance musician, Dunnaville started his own company, St Paul Productions, and as a result of being in the right place at the right time, started working with the youth, teaching them how to use production equipment. From 2003 to present day, Dunnaville has worked with many non-profit organizations, schools, and studios as a program consultant, designing and facilitating positive hip hop workshops to engage the youth
