Paul McDonald - Album Release Show

Paul McDonald

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

Abe Parker

Hi, my name is Abe Parker. I’ve been writing songs ever since I was 5. I wrote this chorus for my sister when she graduated from high school. Her name is Anna. She is super sweet. You would love her. Everyone does. She has red hair and can be as stubborn as the horses she rides. I was hoping that when she first heard this song it would make her smile. It did. But it made her cry too.

In the past year I have done a lot of touring. The best part was getting to open for musical acts such as Andy Grammer and Switchfoot . About seven months ago I packed my life into my Honda Accord and moved from Blue Rock, Ohio (Population 641) to the Atlanta Metropolitan Area of Georgia. (Population 5,457,831)

After two months of performing in any place willing to let me in the door, couch surfing, HOV violations and parking tickets, I landed a gig at Kings Ridge Christian High School. I sang to them:

“I am always your big brother
You’re always my sunshine
There ain’t no two ways about it
Little sister of mine”

The kids exploded. I started getting calls from teachers who told me the kids wouldn’t stop singing Little Sister. My email was clogged with new twitter follower updates and even the football coach starting coming to my night shows in town. I began to realize that my sister and I weren’t the only ones who could benefit from this song.

Andy Grammer so perfectly stated in his song Ladies, “Most of this world sees women like candy.” Because so much music seems to degrade women, I think a song about a brother-sister relationship is becoming increasingly important. Plus, I would do anything short of a felony to drive my sister around town, turn on the radio and hear:

“I am always your big brother
You’re always my sunshine
There ain’t no two ways about it
Little sister of mine”
