With "Modern Hearts", Paul McDonald brings a new flavor of alternative rock with southern swagger. An album delivered by a fiery lead vocal and self-penned lyrical prose that brings emotional depth to hooks and honest songwriting.
An Alabama-born and East Nashville-based artist, Paul McDonald has been a veteran of the music scene for a little over 10 years. Paul's unique style of music has garnered international attention leading to major tours and performances around the world with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Zac Brown, Father John Misty, etc. and has independently played festivals such as Bonnaroo, SXSW, Hangout Festival, etc. Appearances on television shows include The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, and Live With Kelly. After years of touring and recording music independently, releasing multiple albums and EP's with different bands, he's launching his first ever solo endeavor. Over the past 3 years Paul has spent writing hundreds of songs and perfecting his own sound. He's finally found his own creative voice with his first full-length solo album “Modern Hearts" - produced by Jordan Lehning (Rodney Crowell, Andrew Combs) and recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC (Band Of Horses, Avett Brothers) and Sound Emporium Studios (Jason Isbell, Alabama Shakes) in Nashville, TN.
"You'll always know who Paul McDonald is, out of a million singers you'll know him. That's so rare. It's such a gift" - Jimmy Iovine
Imagine if John Mayer met Maroon 5 and they all went to an Ed Sheeran concert. That’s the best way to describe Abe Parker. Parker combines his guitar chops and pop sensibility to create a unique and infectious sound. Parker began his musical journey living out of his car after moving to Atlanta, GA from his small hometown of Blue Rock, Ohio. Since then Parker has become a prominent name in the Atlanta music scene, touring vigorously and sharing the stage with Andy Grammer, Switchfoot, Ben Rector, Judah and the Lion, Andrew Ripp and David Crowder. After Jan Smith (vocal coach for Justin Bieber, and Usher) heard Parker’s single she commented, “I really loved the song “Little Sister” and thought it was somewhat reminiscent of early James Taylor — a high compliment coming from me!”
