2014 was a good year for SaulPaul.
In addition to a national summer tour, SaulPaul recently had a string of very successful industry showcases in Los Angeles. These showcases led to SaulPaul being offered a music licensing deal and a distribution deal. He recently accepted both and his next album will be released via Ingrooves Music/Universal Records. It's been a great year in deed.
SaulPaul's unique blend of hip hop and live instrumentation mixed with his stage presence and a live show that can only be described as an experience helped create the current buzz that he is enjoying.
SaulPaul's like to simply say that he
is a very talented rapper. Others say he is much more than that. When
SaulPaul played the BET Music Matters Showcase, BET's Senior Music
Supervisor Kelly G said, "He was a star."
When 3rd Coast legend, DJ Micheal 5000 Watts experienced a
SaulPaul performance, he said the same thing. What blew SaulPaul's
mind was when the legend asked SaulPaul if he could take a photo with
Regardless of the current buzz, SaulPaul has kept his head down and keeps making music and keeps touring and keeps growing his fan base.
He started the year performing at 2 separate TEDx events. Then he was named Deli Magazine Artist of the Month in March. Also in March, SaulPaul was named Creative Ambassador for the City of Austin and in April he was representing Austin as he was on tour in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. While there , he recorded his single Mama. The success of that song led to SaulPaul being invited to New York City where he performed the song at the United Nations Foundation Moms+Social Good event. When SaulPaul returned from the East coast where he toured for two weeks, he received a proclamation from the Mayor when the City of Austin deemed June 12th SaulPaul Day. Shortly after that SaulPaul went on a national summer tour. He played 5 major festivals across the country: Summerfest, Musikfest, The Orange County Fair, Sonshine Fest and the Safeway BBQ Battle and Music Festival. He even documented his summer tour and released a series called SaulPaul: TourLife. Check out the Summerfest Episode. It's a great look into what a SaulPaul performance is like and you can see how SaulPaul makes his fans feel.
Now with all the touring behind him for
a couple weeks, SaulPaul will finish the recording of his new album.
After having shot a music video and recorded a summer jam with Austin
Music Awards Hip Hop Artist of the year, Trampia, he is
looking to do more co-writes. Next up is Austin's own Courtney
lead single from the upcoming project is titled RISE. The song was
written in the Live Music Capitol of the World, Austin, TX, but it
was recorded in Nashville with the help of Grammy Winning, Platinum
Selling Producer Billy Smiley. The song itself features SaulPaul
rapping, singing, beat boxing and playing percussion on the guitar.
Totally organic, totally from the soul. It serves a great snapshot of
where SaulPaul has evolved to as an artist.

Varies, dependent upon venue and time allotted. SaulPaul has enough original music to play for more than 4 hours straight. Luckily, that's never been necessary. LOL.
