Paul Davies

"Paul Davies offers a wry take on life."
Steve Lamacq

Paul Davies is an affable London gent with exquisite taste. He wrote his first song aged 5 following his first ever trip on the tube and has never looked back.

Following spells as a shoe-shining pickpocket and Baker Street irregular, he set about recording his debut album, 'Man About Town', which was soon followed by 'Tradition In Modern Times'. Both were self-releases, with the majority of sales coming through a 2-for-1 offer with some apples on a fruit & veg store in Covent Garden.

In his more ponderous moments, typically over a cup of Darjeeling tea, he can invariably be found immersed in the words of Philip Larkin and Ted Hughes, or avoiding the scratches in the vinyl of Nick Cave and Tom Waits, or studying French so he can fully appreciate the lyricism of Serge Gainsbourg.

Paul's latest release is an EP called 'If You Only Knew' and, despite a dispute with Apple over the digitization of its produce, is available now on iTunes. He is currently recording a follow up somewhere in the heart of his dear old London town.

"Draws unequivocal comparisons with the slower more vulnerable moments from both Pete Doherty or Graham Coxon's solo work. Certainly not bad company to be in."
Barry Guff

"If nothing else, you'll surely be put in a better mood after listening."
Austin Town Hall
