Previously of Cheltenham indie band The Drawing of the Three and now leading the band Hear the Spheres, Paul is a guitarist, singer, songwriter and private guitar instructor. He has performed most notably at local venues the Frog and Fiddle, Gloucester Guildhall and Bristol Fleece, and festivals including Lakefest and Sportbeat.
New Single - Turn a light on
Turn a light on is a song about losing your way and finding it again. When life becomes too much to deal with, when you're not living the life you want to, remember who you are. Find yourself again. Perhaps loved ones shine a light to show you the way. Perhaps you find your own way through reflection and positive change. Don't give up. You'll feel better soon.
