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.

It's June already!

This year seems to be carrying on at a relentless pace, with the date advancing one day each day. Time flies when you’re having fun. I’m a big fan of June, because it’s my birthday soon!

Before I go on, there are some gigs coming up – some fun to be had. Come on down! I’m booking some more gigs in the autumn – do get in touch if you’d like one!

Now is also a good time to check out my music in the online store – the whole back catalogue is currently “name your price” so it’s a great time to get some music for whatever you can afford. Download, listen, tell your friends.

I’m spending some time over the next few months, writing and thinking about what’s next. When I know what’s next, I’ll be sure to let you know. Meantime, I have some songs to sing, some new people to sing them too. Sounds good!

April Update

Well, April has nearly run away from us. It’s been a crazy few weeks. I really enjoyed meeting some of you on the Caffe Nero tour, and making some new friends. Thanks to all those who came along, chatted, bought CDs etc. The hot chocolates and vanilla frappes were good too.

Then it was great to spend 4 nights doing shows with the marvellous Paul Kerensa at Spring Harvest. Comedy, music, chat, a christmas hat. It was all good. Then it was one of my favourite gigs of the year so far in North Wales at the Word Alive festival – broadcast live on the chalet TV as well. Much fun and jolly japes, and some good tunes.

Then to cap it all, Clare Balding played “Love is happening” from “Small Town Boy” on her Radio 2 show.

So all in all, a good month!

Looking ahead, I’m pleased to announce an appearance at Cornbury Festival in leafy Oxfordshire – I’m playing the Caffe Nero Marquee on the Saturday lunchtime. Sounds fun! More gigs to be confirmed soon.
