A stripped back release showing his early influences such as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Jonny Cash as well as some latter day artists who he has opened,, Justin Townes Earl, Otis Gibbs, and Trevor Moss & Hannah Lou.

Paul has released a number of albums and is working on a new album which he is looking to release in the autumn to coincide woth the tour.

will support released 2 solo albums of original songs, 'Desire Lines' in 2008. (The completion of this overlapped with the birth of The Hi And Lo) and 'No Place Like Home' in 2003 which had many favorable reviews, ..is fresh, vibrant and bounds with enthusiasm for his craft.. 4**** Fatea Paul spent four and a half years playing with The Hi And Lo and put out their first and only album in 2010 called 'Ten Tracks'

A positive career move was to join Clubhouse Records, which began with a track of his being used on their debut release - 'Divided By A Common Language' in 2010 and later he was involved in 'Nebraska Sessions A Tribute' to mark the 30 year anniversary of Bruce Springsteen's 'Nebraska' This led to his first solo output with Clubhouse, the excellent debut album in 2014 Smiling From The Floor Up. A stripped back release showing his early influences such as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Jonny Cash as well as some latter day artists who he has opened,, Justin Townes Earl, Otis Gibbs, and Trevor Moss & Hannah Lou.

'SONGS FOR ANYONE' typifies just what he has to offer and is the much anticipated follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut album Smiling From The Floor Up. Featuring the talents of Clubhouse Records label mates Hannah Elton-Wall of the Redlands Palomino Company and Joe Bennett of the Dreaming Spires this new work blends the raw bones of stripped down voice and guitar arrangements with the jangling band ensemble of a room full of good times picking up where the last album left off with the very personal themes of love, life and loss and taking them on to new heights…

"Paul is an incredibly talented songwriter with big catchy melodies. His songs are at times very humorous, rebellious, sometimes sad but always refreshingly honest. His material is like him - confident, highly original and totally individual" - Think Country Magazine

"He is one of the bedrocks of UK alt-country, folkand Americana scene" - 3 Chords and the Truth
