ABOUT

Paul William Gibson is a solo singer-songwriter from Warwickshire in the Midlands of England. He writes and plays original songs with a roots, folk and Americana flavour.

 

Following two successful EPs Homespun (August 2022) and Chasing Sunsets (May 2023), Paul released his debut full length album These Elusive Days to enthusiastic, positive reviews in October 2023. Paul has been supported by local and national radio, including BBC Introducing, as well as national press and music blogs, and is currently recording new material for release in 2024.

Paul walks the line between the contemporary folk and Americana worlds, his songs showcasing a strong melodic and poetic core. His lyrics are observational, character driven and confessional.

 

Paul is a regular on the Warwickshire and Oxfordshire folk and acoustic scenes and regularly plays further afield. As well as releasing the EP and album, summer 2023 was busy with several festival appearances including: Warwick Folk Festival, Art in the Park in Leamington and Northampton Music Festival.

 

Recent appearances include: Banbury Folk Club headline show; CV Folk at the Albany Theatre, Coventry; Motofest; BBC Radio Oxford live session and interview; Kineton Music Festival, Come and Be Festival.

Plans for 2024 include a new single (released 14th February 2024), an EP and follow up album later in the year, as well as a national tour.

Album These Elusive Days is out now - available on all digital platforms.
