Despite Everything You've Planned
Raised on James Taylor, while cutting his teeth on Nirvana, Paul Alexander's diverse heritage is clear in his refreshingly thoughtful and imaginative musical narratives. Playing guitar since he was thirteen and singing almost as soon as he could speak, Paul almost immediately ventured beyond the known and began creating his own very original songs. Throughout high school Paul honed his musical abilities, playing with multiple musical ensembles. Then, in college at Indiana University, Paul furthered his musicianship and developed his unique and electrifying songwriting and performance skills while he fronted the band Tintern Abbey, who was selected to be a part of the 2002 Live from Bloomington CD compilation. Finally, after four years with Tintern Abbey, Paul decided to launch a career as a solo artist. In addition to boasting a powerful stage presence as well as vocal and lyrical savvy which is somehow familiar even in it's uniqueness, this singer/songwriter combines rock, funk and folk to create a most eclectic amalgamation of sound. Named for his mothers favorite songsmith, Paul Simon, Paul Alexander aspires to make his own distinct mark on the world. 'What would you do if you weren't afraid?'
