I've been knocking up an album of acoustic versions of some of the songs I've written over the last 33 years or so. It started with me practicing for a solo gig I've got coming up...and as I quite enjoyed myself, I thought I'd record some of them. To be fair, some worked better than others...but I thought I'd whack them all out and offer it up for nowt. It was really fun doing them in such a stripped back fashion.

It's here if anyone fancies having a listen...

They used to call me "Adda" at I thought I'd use that name, rip-off the ABBA logo and make a rubbish joke too.

Hi Paul

Listening while I do a spot of work - I'd actually forgotten how listenable I find your voice! It's unique and really appeals to me. There's a touch of Mr Costello in there (as I've banged on about before), but it is your own! I recognise some from Keep The Receipt, an album I love. Honeymoon at Home, Ashley Madison - superb songs mate, as are many of them!

They say that a test of good song is if it works stripped back like this, and many of them pass the test with flying colours.

Hi I’m really impressed I like your voice it is unusual , I enjoyed listening and seeing the words as well , one or two songs sounded a bit similar .
I think I’d prefer to hear you sing songs that had a bit of an edge , a bit faster ,punkier, stranglers , undertones time of thing - I think you remind me of Fergal Sharkey

Hi Paul!

Nice with a new album.
I've unsubscribed to Spotify in an attempt to discover new artists and music. Takes me back to the Myspace days.
You've given me a good starting point.

All the best!

I've downloaded a copy
you're a very solid songwriter with a distinctive style.

I did once cover "stand down" and would busk it in Berlin.
The song resonated with me
Great job!
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

And there you have it.
