Paul Stephens (1994)



Since his 1994 self titled debut, Paul Stephens approach to writing and performing has been rooted in delivering heartfelt and memorable material. Subsequent releases "Cross The Mississippi" (1997), "Simple Yesterdays" (2002) and "Not Quite Nashville" (2006) continued in the songwriter’s songwriter direction.

Stephens fifth release; “Windshield Memoirs”, ups the creative anti with eleven sharply penned new compositions covering a wide range of lyrical, emotional and musical ground. The release crosses over somewhere between Americana, Rock and Country along the way celebrating southern hospitality in “Cowgirls & Cowbells”, “Small Packages” and “Nashville Rain”; paying reverence to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Carl Perkins and Furrey Lewis in “When In Memphis”, referencing Pet Sounds in “Blind Spot”, lamenting creative obsolescence via “Back In Vaudeville” and loss through “Nothing I Can Talk About”; each track on this release is a unique portrait contributing to the underlying roadmap.

Paul conceived much of the material that makes up “Windshield Memoirs” during his many miles of travel of the last few years. “Traveling gives you so many opportunities for ideas,” suggests Stephens. “You often tend to be alone out there which allows for deeper observations. These can be great ideas for a song.”

A seasoned performer who has shared bills with the varied likes of Jim Lauderdale, Gary Bennett (BR549), Webb Wilder, Brian Henneman (the Bottlerockets), Bugs Henderson, Leon Russell, Rick Derringer and Unknown Hinson, etc; Paul plans to expand his performance schedule while continuing to write and record new material at home in Nashville. "I love to write songs. This is what I have been doing since I was nine years old. The main goal I have is to be genuine in my writing and performances." In this rests the secret to Paul’s craft - he writes and sings about what he knows best...
