Based in Dublin, Ireland, A Band Called Paul is the creation of former orchestral percussionist, soundtrack composer and session musician Paul McDonnell. The band's music reflects the variety and depth of Paul's musical career with deft lane changes between hard rock, latin jazz, electronica and world music.
A Band Called Paul released their debut album, "Primero", in February 2019. They have released five singles to date - the latin jazz "Hero Two" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CrOgzj3JBQ), the darkly electronic "Freefall" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIW450wY3AQ), the upbeat 60’s-influenced indie rock “In It For Money” (https://youtu.be/pA4Vyu_Nv6s), the stadium-rock-with-a-twist “Shimalay” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKgLd9sqf84) and the homage to Henry Mancini and 1950's lounge music "Slow Train" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0elyPLWPKE).
The band's sound has been described as if Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, The The and Beck were to collaborate. That applies to about half of what they do.
