Paolo Baltaro (born 1967 in Genoa), is a musician, singer, songwriter, producer, and founder of Banksville Records.

Whilst living in Italy Paolo joined the Neo Prog band Arcansiel at the time of their third album, Normality of Perversion, which was followed by Swimming in the Sand. In 2008, he formed the experimental nu-jazz quintet S.A.D.O. (Società Anonima Decostruzionismi Organici) as a spin-off of Arcansiel. With S.A.D.O., he was made the 12th "Tribute to Demetrio Stratos" and also won the "Darwin award of Italian non-conventional music". In 2010 he was awarded best progressive producer of the year by the Prog Award webzine for the conceptual bilingual album Weather Underground.
In 2008 he released Do Not Disturb, a blues album with Mhmm for Banksville Records as songwriter, producer, singer, bassist and keyboardist. In 2011 he released Low Fare Flight to the Earth, his solo album, as singer and composer, playing all instruments, for Musea records. Now based in London, Paolo is also the drummer of Laura Guidi and of acclaimed Italian punk band Sorella Maldestra (producer of their second album, Maltempo). In 2016 he released his first book in Italian, “Gli Ambienti Teorici Multidimensionali”, with an English language edition available soon. This year, in addition to releasing his new solo album The Day After The Night Before, Paolo will produce Call Porter (a very alternative remake of classic Cole Porter hits) with the Brazilian jazz star Lica Cecato, and will play guitar in the new Sound Wall Project album, produced by Andrea Bonizzi, with Colin Edwin of Porcupine Tree on bass and Angelo Bruschini of Massive Attack.
In 2017 he released his second solo album, "The day after the night before" released by Banksville Records and produced the original soundtrack of La Tempete, a movie by Ricky Mastro. In January 2019, in occasion of the reunion of S.A.D.O. Società Anonima Decostruzionismi Organici, Paolo releases "Musiche per signorine da marito - Cura uditiva della narcolessia in forma Sentenziale"  (Banksville Records), a double experimental album, in English and Italian version in the same record, formed of nine songs (total duration: seven miutes and 30 seconds), recorded in Sentential format (song, truth, sentence).
