Walkin' the Long Road EP
'One listen to the 'Walkin' the Long Road' EP and it's pretty clear that Paul Wilkes stands for the Music without the Bullshit... immerse yourself in the Music, it's really quite lovely' 4 out of 5 Crud Magazine 'Walkin' The Long Road again shows that however well-trodden a path the acoustic singer/ songwriter one may be, it's one still worth pursuing by a minority of talented souls... It's a stance that ought to ensure his journey will be a similar road to Damascus for a growing number of fans in the near future.' 8 out of 10 whisperinandhollerin.com 'Relentlessly warm, comforting and easy to listen to, this surpasses David Gray and Damien Rice by a mile, and whilst obviously solo acoustic acts can descend into tiresome drudgery, this is just too damn lovely to grow weary of' musicomh.com 'These songs are personal, slices of life, intimate and satisfying, they travel roads suggested by Nick Drake... no hyperbole, you could say Raymond Carver to James Blunt's Barbara Cartland.' americana-UK.com Paul's second limited edition EP, Walkin' The Long Road, is the sound of a true 21st century solo artist, with Paul writing, performing, engineering and producing all songs himself. Not bad for a 22 year old! It is different to the full-band studio sound of his previous acclaimed EP Green Lane, but this is a recording that Paul himself says more accurately portrays him 'With this EP I wanted it stripped down, honest and mellow, which I feel as though I've achieved.' He said 'I have recorded four songs live with a few overdubs on acoustic guitar and bass so basically I have captured a moment with the recordings and I feel as though this really comes across.'
