Paula McMath hails originally from a small town in Southern Ontario called Kingsville. She has called Santa Monica home for the past twelve years while she has been finely articulating her thoughts in song. She says of her own music, "I try to sing what I can't say." The past two years have resulted in the writing and recording of her latest body of work which is called trust the sky.

Producer John Hanlon, who has worked closely with Neil Young, says of her recent work, "I feel really strongly about this music. I think Paula's voice, the lyrics, and the melodies are amazing." Paul Zollo, author of Songwriters on Songwriting and Senior Editor at American Songwriter magazine says, "Paula McMath is the real deal, a seriously great songwriter, gifted musician and inspirational artist. It’s heartening in these times to hear a songwriter so plugged into the source. If you’ve been searching for songwriter writing and singing songs from the heart, search no more –  listen to Paula McMath."

The CD release concert for trust the sky was recently held at McCabe's Concert Stage in Santa Monica. The musicians who contributed to the recordings, Ian Hattwick (Buddy Childers), Kim Woolford (Young Dubliners) , Doug Shreeve (Planet X), Robert Fernandez (Barry Manilow), and Victor Bisetti (Los Lobos) were all on hand to perform.

Rescue Records / Five Alarm Music, in Pasadena, has been successfully placing Paula's songs in TV and film. HBO series Everwood featured 2 songs from Paula's last CD [consumed and can't stop thinkin' of you] on their final DVD compilation. Music Connection Magazine named Paula McMath one of LA's Hot 100 Unsigned Artists 2006. Independent radio is a current focus for exposure of Paula's new music. She is also planning other performances in Southern California and Southern Ontario in the coming months.

"I grew up listening to my Dad's Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen albums - while simultaneously being exposed to Detroit rock radio - which reached across the Detroit River to my small town home in Southern Canada. Then came Joni Mitchell and, in the last 10 years, Patty Griffin. It blows my mind what can be contained in a song. I aspire to distill things down to as few words as I can and then to make them sing."

John Pozer, Cannes award-winning Writer/Director of The Grocer's Wife says, "Wonderful. Reminiscent of Joni... and there couldn't be a better compliment."
