A Band Called Paul

LATEST RELEASE (March 2021):

Our latest release is a little bit different ... even by our standards!

Written and recorded at a distance of 5,000 miles apart, “Breaking Through” is a first time collaboration between Irish indie artist A Band Called Paul and Arizona-based rapper JoeliD.


With the clear and focused aim of weaving together our two distinct musical genres to create a new sound, the track infuses A Band Called Paul’s indie edge through its hip hop foundation, driving the predominantly guitar and drum led verses with intricate and percussive rapping from JoeliD.

Based in Dublin, A Band Called Paul is the creation of former orchestral percussionist, soundtrack composer and session musician Paul McDonnell. The band's music reflects the variety and depth of Paul's musical career with deft lane changes between hard rock, latin jazz, electronica and world music.


A Band Called Paul released their debut album, "Primero", in February 2019. They have released five singles to date - the latin jazz "Hero Two" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CrOgzj3JBQ), the darkly electronic "Freefall" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIW450wY3AQ), the 60s-infused indie pop “In It For Money” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA4Vyu_Nv6s), the stadium-rock-with-a-twist "Shimalay" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKgLd9sqf84) and the homage to Henry Mancini and 1950's lounge music "Slow Train" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0elyPLWPKE).


The band's sound has been described as if Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, The The and Beck were to collaborate. But that only covers about 50% of what they do.
