Paul Bell

Hi! I’m Paul. I’m one of that strange breed of people called “songwriters”. I like to make people laugh, think, cry, and maybe look at things a bit differently. I find that music helps.

I live near Nottingham and play gigs all around the UK. My fourth album is out now, and it’s a goodun’. It’s available here or on iTunes.

Caffè Nero Tour

Caffe Nero Tour Banner

Today, I’m pleased to announce that I’m leaving my singer-songwriter lair in a hollowed out volcano just north of Nottingham, and heading out on the road in partnership with my friends at Caffè Nero, to take some music to places I’ve not played before.

Caffè Nero have been playing my music in their stores now for a few months, and it’s always cool when someone tells me they heard a track in there.

The tour begins on March 18th in Leeds and ends on April 1st in Central London. 17 gigs, 8 dates, 1000+ hot-chocolate-fuelled miles.

In addition to the dates with Caffè Nero, I will also be playing The Bedford in Balham, towards the end of the tour. The Bedford is a sought after London venue, and has played host to James Morrison, Paolo Nutini, KT Tunstall, Ed Sheeran and Newton Faulkner amongst others.

If you can make it along, these should be really fun, informal little gigs. Have a chat, grab a coffee, request a song and I’ll play it for you.

Full tour dates are as follows:

January Update - taking to the airwaves

Happy New Year! Hope it’s going well for you so far. I’m writing this having thawed out from a very cold morning singing a song outside to a camera for a video you’ll see soon. I think I lost a toe! We all have to suffer for our art sometimes though.

I wanted to let you know about a couple of things. Firstly, tomorrow night (Saturday 11th January) the kind folks at BBC Introducing in the East Midlands (surely the finest of all the BBC Introducing shows!) are playing another track and an interview we recorded this week. Was a lovely chat, so looking forward to hearing it back.

Secondly, I’m also excited that BBC Radio 2 are playing a track on Sunday Morning as part of the “Good Morning Sunday” programme with Clare Balding. Will be great to hear some of my music on the UK’s biggest radio station.

If you enjoy either of those, and want to let the programme teams know, you can always drop them an email or a cheeky tweet.

I’m plotting some live tour dates for 2014, and hopefully the odd festival appearance too. Keep up to date here or on Twitter.
