PAUL MELIA Single “MISS YOU” Out Dec 20th- Taken from Album “Hold Onto The Colours” Out now
With ‘Lights in the sand’, the debut single from Paul Melia’s having racked up some considerable airplay within Irish and international radio waves over the Summer Months, his upcoming album Hold Onto The Colours has just been released. An exciting musically diverse singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist from Sligo, his debut defines how promising our local music scene is currently in Ireland. His natively flourished pop music at its very best has an incredibly addictive sing-a-long chorus with a glistening backing beat.
“New single ‘MISS YOU’ is one of the more stripped back tracks on the album, with its lingering intro and gradual build up… to its beautifully laden string section in the middle. It is a superb song that surprises and makes up for any doubt you may have on this multi faceted singer songwriter”- FUGM.
The album was recorded between Dublin and Sweden. Paul plays all the instruments on the album apart from the drums, which features the talented Johnny Boyle of The Frames, Pugwash & Picturehouse. The album features a diversity and range not seen since Duke Special boasting everything from pop, piano ballads, indie, rock and jazz. The album artwork was created by James Marsh, most famous for his work on the brilliant Talk Talk album sleeves.
Despite being at the moment a one-man band, Paul’s live show is an energetic journey through a range of genres that takes you from dancing to waving your lighters in the air. Paul has been lucky enough to take his brilliant live show everywhere from Electric Picnic to Whelans, The Sugar Club and The Grand Social.
