P-H-M Debut at Sun Valley Strawberry Fest 2012

By Sarah L. on April 25, 2013

P-H-M is a wonderful band and really helped to make the 2012 Sun Valley Strawberry Festival a great event! Their music is a lot of fun and is easily relatable to all ages. Everyone enjoyed the sound of the band along with their message. I would definitely ask them to play at another event.

Hired as: Christian Band

Paul Hieser performs several styles of music taking audiences back to a time when acoustic music came alive. Paul performs cover tunes ranging from James Taylor to America to CSN&Y.

Whether Paul is strumming or finger picking songs, each show is a memorable experience for all who attend as Paul interacts with audiences sharing life experiences, humor and thought provoking snippets relative to today's events.

Paul uses Breedlove Pursuit Concert 6-string and Yamaha APX700II 12-string acoustic/electric guitars. Vocal harmonies are compliments of a Vocalist Live 3 pedal. All blended nicely through a multi-channel Acoustic combo amp with Kustom monitors/speakers giving audiences the sound thats pleasant to the ears.
