John Moe, the witty and affable host of MPR’s Wits just tweeted something really nice about INNER SUNSET by The Paul & John: 7-16-2014
“Hey, know what? [The Paul & John] has created a really great album of dreamy Beatlesque pop music. Wisdom! Hooks! Listen!” –
“I dig it. Will listen to it *recreationally*, a rare thing in a job where I listen to a ton of music professionally.” –
I’ve known Paul Myers for about two years, his talent as a music journalist, writer and tweeter has shredded my 80’s legwarmers and tangled them in the air conditioner more than once. So you guys need to know about The Paul & John.
As a journalist, Paul has written for everyone from FastCompany.com to Mix Magazine, The San Francisco Bay Guardian and more, more, more! His critically acclaimed biography of Todd Rundgren respected by musicians and music lovers… but then I heard the music he’s been creating with John Moremen! John Moremen is the lead guitarist in the critically acclaimed Bay Area band The Orange Peels and was lynchpin in D.C. band The Neighbors.
The Paul & John is a collaboration between guitarist/vocalist songwriters Paul Myers and John Moremen.
The depth, resonance and genuine feeling of going back in time, yet, keeping us right here is palpable. Flavors of The Beatles with layering of The Beach Boys, the clean feeling of Elvis Costello and the reminsicence of time somehow wrapped in the beautiful harmonies of The Paul & John all the while the music is fresh, new. I felt myself traveling through the tunes like a stream meanders gracefully around pebbles and then rocks, we find ourselves with the feeling of home. Something so comfortable right away at the first listen to The Paul & John.
The Paul & John is a collaboration between guitarist/vocalist songwriters Paul Myers and John Moremen. The Paul & John only record music they’ve written together. Additionally, Paul is the designated lyricist. The two handle all major sounds between them, with John on the drums and Paul on the bass. Producer Allen Clapp is a voting member in the arranging and sonics.
