Paul Stanley was born in Kinston Jamaica, so it was only natural that as a young child growing up he was feed a steady diet of Jamaica's greatest export Bob Marley. Migrating to the United States just before his teenage years, Stanley found himself living in the south Bronx New York. Here he was exposed to a totally new world. In an area, at a time when hip hop emerging into the light of mainstream music. Stanley found him self there. Watching his school mates using a freeform style of hip hop as their after school games, Stanley would come to understand the art of story telling in song form.
Although Stanley would never develop the skills of the talented rappers around him, he would become an avid music lover all the time writing songs and poetry as a way to release emotions. He moved to northeastern pa where he finally decide to try to put his song writing to use. after years of rejection from local bands he tried to form his own group. But this was to be a dead end as well as people constantly reject all attempts at getting quality music made. He went to local studios, they sold him short. He traveled to Harrisburg area of PA. and watch as the studio tried to steal his material. Throughout all this he worked his craft. Seeming to get better with every song he wrote. he would dedicate his life to it. He would make a STONE DECISION.
