    Paul was born in San Sebastián in 1979. He has a higher degree in jazz piano, since he began to study classical piano at the age of twelve, his great passion was and continues to be the blues. His first contact with this style was through the British rhythm & blues groups of the 60s.

    He has been performing since he was 15 years old and is currently totally immersed in the blues piano tradition, dominating styles such as “stride” or “boogie woogie”. In 2011 he published his first solo album, “Tracks”, a piano and voice album on the Gaztelupeko Hotsak label. Together with his group Stay Blues, he has participated in different blues festivals and, for five consecutive years, has performed at the prestigious San Sebastián Jazz Festival. In the summer of 2007, the band also released their first album. His influences include those of musicians such as Alan Price, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roosevelt Sykes, Memphis Slim, Otis Spann, Sunnyland Slim, Dr John, Professor Longhair or James Booker.

    Throughout his long career, Paul San Martín has collaborated with highly relevant artists, including Nico Wayne Toussaint, Otis Grand, Gerry Hundt, Lluís Coloma, James Armstrong, Ñaco Goñi, Slam Allen, Sax Gordon, Chris Ruest or the legendary blues legend, Billy Boy Arnold. In 2013, Paul edited, again in the Gaztelupeko Hotsak company, his latest work for piano and voice, “Paul's Mood”, a new pianistic immersion in the different styles of blues. Paul comes directly from San Sebastián to participate in the Fridays Blues & Boogie Woogie piano meeting cycle of the MEAM.

    Born in Rosario, Argentina, to musician parents, Cristian Moya began studying piano as a child, obtaining a degree in classical piano at the National School of Music in Rosario and finishing modern piano at L'Aula del Liceu in Barcelona.

    He has accompanied on several tours Andy Moss, one of the singers of the legendary American band "The Platters" and several American bluesmen such as Patrick Hazell (Iowa) or Bob Margolin (guitarist for Muddy Waters). In 2015 he made a tour throughout Spain with the Spanish-Argentine band "Tota Blues Band" based in Barcelona of which he is a stable pianist. He has taught blues and boogie-woogie piano lessons, performing at the Madrid Blues School together with José Luis Pardo, renowned Argentine guitarist based in the capital and founder of said school.
