Matthew Paul - Brooklyn Sessions



Based in Brooklyn, NY, Matthew Paul is a gifted musician known for his signature dynamic folk style and smoky vocal melodies. Matthew, 24, considers himself a modern storyteller; he blends unique reggae-folk music with soulful, intimate lyrics. To date, he has played over 40 venues across the U.S., and has a growing base of devoted and eclectic fans.

Raised in the small town of Clinton, N.Y., Matthew began his musical career early. By the age of 10, he had mastered the cello. At 11, he was the rising star of his school�s esteemed public chorus group. At that point, he knew he wanted to devote his life to music. Although classically trained, he gained a vast knowledge of different styles and variations. His cello and singing performances took him around the country�travels which would later influence his songwriting.

It wasn�t until his late teens that Matthew became seduced by the body and soul of the guitar. He immediately fell in love with the instrument. Self-taught, he began an exciting writing career. Inspired by the characters and stories he had absorbed on the road, Matthew developed an exceptional songwriting style. Unlike other singer-songwriters in the same genre, Matthew has a fresh edge to his music�a Brooklyn flavor. He expresses a spectrum of complex emotions�from upbeat and joyful to dark and thoughtful�that reflect real-life experiences. His songs energize crowds, but they are more than catchy tunes. Each one has a depth that demonstrates Matthew�s sensitive maturity.

Matthew has performed with Pepper, Slightly Stoopid, Long Beach Short Bus, Carbon Leaf, and other acclaimed artists. He has recorded in legendary Nashville, Tennessee, and his songs have been well received by fellow musicians like G. Love.
Above all, Matthew remains the most indebted to his fans. He has an uncanny ability to connect with his audiences, and something special happens during these performances. Very comfortable on stage, he loves improvising music on the spot. He makes every show a meaningful experience.

With the enthusiastic support of his fans, Matthew continues to write, perform, and grow as an artist. His lifelong love affair with music is just beginning.
