Hi, I'm Paul D McDowell.
Handpicked by Gordon Raphael (the Strokes, Regina Spektor), praised and encouraged by Sir Paul McCartney (the Beatles), and mentored by David Cross, (King Crimson's violinist); I have been writing songs as far back as I can remember.
Born and raised in Liverpool, I have toured my original music around the UK, Europe and across parts of Western Australia; and have released four solo albums of original songs and one EP. My music has received radio airplay in Liverpool, Seattle, Berlin and London as well as across the Australian continent.
Towards the end of 2020 I uploaded and shared 100 Daily Songs online. 100 Days, 100 Original Songs, 100 Music Videos - which I completed on Friday 27th November 2020. You can see the collection of 100 Videos at my YouTube channel.
I am currently working on a new album, to be released in 2022 or 2023.
My intricate fingerstyle guitar playing is influenced by folk, blues, classical, jazz and rock. My music stems from personal life experience, nature, stillness, meditation and self expression. My intent is to artistically create transcendentally timeless tunes, poetically reflecting on the gift of now as an eternally shimmering present; and to inspire others to make music.
My latest album is ‘Oceans in a Droplet’ which I self-released in 2018.
