Paul Brändle, born 1992, is one of Munich's premier up and coming Jazz guitarists. He leads his own trio, which combines traditional Jazz elements with modern sounds and allows for "in the moment" playing.

Furthermore Paul is known for his work with veteran drummer Rick Hollander and his Quartet. The group features Berlin bassist Matt Adomeit and saxophonist Dr. Brian Levy who is a full time faculty member of the prestigious New England Conservatory in Boston. Together they do European tours semiannually, they also performed at the famous "Smalls Jazz Club" in New York City as well as other venues in the US.

Paul won  the "New German Jazz Award" in 2018 as a member of the Vincent Eberle Quintett.

In 2017 "Simplicity" was released on "Organic Music". The recording, a collaborative effort by Guido May, Andre Schwager and Paul Brändle, highlights him in a Hammond B3 setting.


Paul is also featured in the group "Fazer". Their unique sound is cut from a wide range of influences from west-african polyrhythm and classical indian music to dub-techno and post-rock.

Since 2015 Paul is proud to be a part of the "Christian Elsässer Jazz Orchestra", one of Germany's most interesting independent Bigbands. They perform regularly at Jazzclub Unterfahrt in Munich.

In 2012 guitar duo "Emminger-Brändle" won the Bavarian newcomer jazz award. Paul has also worked with guitar greats like Howard Alden, Peter O'Mara, Helmut Nieberle and Paulo Morello.

"Paul Brändle proved himself as a promising newcomer with an own personality..."
