Album Launch: debut album "Stay" coming 10 November
Posted: Wed Oct 23, 2019 9:27 pm
An old master to release his debut LP after 30 years in the business.

Singer songwriter Paul S Allen has been a stalwart live performer for more around 30 years in Dunedin, but there’s one thing he’s not done, until now…

Paul S Allen releases his first full album, ‘Stay’ on November 10th 2019.

Stay is a nine song LP which represents the cream on the top of three decades of songwriting.

The album takes the listener on a musical journey from almost pure folk, brushing past alt country, and lurching at times to kiwi rock.

A multi-instrumentalist Paul S Allen arranged and plays every instrument on Stay, and on tunes like the opener Am I flying?, Young at heart (faded from black), and Shine your light, he layers up harmony vocals in a similar way to great gospel singers like Steve Wonder.

The album’s title track is the second to last song on the album, which is closed off with Sleep, a song which began life as a poem that Allen penned a few years back.

With Allen’s reflective lyric style, his original songs are from the heart and soul drawing on observations of the world around him.

He’s English born, but now is a proud Kiwi, and a passionate supporter of the Dunedin music scene.

Paul S Allen is celebrating the release of Stay with an album release party at Dog With Two Tails in Dunedin on Sunday afternoon, November 10th.

Supporting Paul S Allen at the one-off release show for Stay is rising Dunedin-based country singer Bronwyn, who returned to the city recently from a stint in Nashville USA, where she intends to return as soon as possible.
Paul S Allen will have hard copies of Stay available at the release show.

Links to Stay will be online at Spotify, Google play, iTunes, and Bandcamp and are set to go live on November 10th.

Paul S Allen plays in Bark at Dog With Two Tails in Dunedin’s Moray Place at 2pm Sunday November 10th with Bronwyn, to celebrate the release of his debut LP Stay.
