About Paul Stanley

For more than 30 years, Paul Stanley has reigned supreme as one of the single-most recognizable front men in the history of rock and roll. He’s the chief songwriter, driving force and unwavering voice of KISS. A visionary and trendsetter since the early 1970s, Stanley’s passion for both the musical and visual arts has perhaps been the key to the astonishing ongoing world phenomenon known as KISS. Stanley single-handedly penned such escapist anthems as “Love Gun,” “God of Thunder” and “Black Diamond.” He was the golden throat that throttled “Detroit Rock City,” the charismatic swagger behind “I Was Made For Lovin’ You,” and stripped of makeup, was the unmasked troubadour that breathed vocal life into the ballads “Reason to Live,” “Forever” and “Every Time I Look At You.” His artistic and visual input has been seen in his designs of KISS album covers, stages and apparel.

Stanley has also overseen the band’s development and expansion into a worldwide brand with more than 3,000 licensees. Stanley’s signature model guitars continue to be marketed by numerous musical instrument companies. Sales now stand at over $13 million.

As an accomplished solo performer, Stanley released Live to Win [New Door Records/ Universal Music Enterprises] his first solo album in more than 25 years, and second overall. In Live to Win, Stanley strips his emotions to the bone and adorns them with a melodic sheen, with songs about the power of the human spirit and commitment to not compromising ideals. In 2008, Stanley released the heavily-anticipated concert DVD, “One Live Kiss,” that quickly went to the top of the music video charts. Stanley also produced KISS’s 2009 release Sonic Boom that debuted at number one on the Billboard Hard Rock Chart.

In addition to the concert stage, Stanley has also played to theatrical audiences in the title role of “The Phantom of the Opera”.

As an alumni of the prestigious High School of Music and Art in NYC, Stanley also returned to his passion for painting ten years ago by creating portraits and abstracts that are emotionally-charged compositions. As a highly-acclaimed fine artist, he aims to maximize the direct, physical impact of his paintings through scale, texture, color and simplicity of images. In a few short years of exhibiting, Stanley’s works have been acquired by numerous art collectors and he has been commissioned to create large works to be displayed by an international corporate entity. Stanley’s tremendous success as a fine artist has translated into well over $3 million in sales in 2010. He is exhibited nationwide through Wentworth Galleries (http://www.WentworthGallery.com).
