Azariah Paris has been playing music since the age of 5. Drums and accordion were his first choice. By age 9 he’d played his first gig as guitarist in his father’s band one New Years Eve. He earned $50 and became hooked ever since.
From 1978 to 1981 Azariah was a studio guitarist at Silverlake Recording Studio in L.A. and toured Canada, USA, Europe, Japan and South America with several bands. In 1981 “Az” was guitarist for Little Richard, after which he formed his own band from 1981-1987 opening for acts like Willie Dixon, Bo Diddley, Powder Blues and George Thorogood.
Currently, Az is working with up-and-coming acts in Regina.
