Having released a collective of home based recordings called "The Simple Plan" in 2008, Asela advanced to a slightly more ambitious venture via the "Fickle Kings And Drama Queens" EP in 2010.
After a mini break from song writing, purely due to the need to take a breather and focus on actually making a living, he's returned to penning a few songs in the last 4-5 months. This has resulted in the newly completed "Paper Boy".
The EP starts with the summer warmth of "Let's Build A Taj Mahal", the lead single off of the EP, which has already received radio play in his island home Sri Lanka. From "Eyes Wide Open", which features the endearing vocals of Isuri Dayaratne, to the calm of "Home" and search for answers in the title track "Paper Boy" it is clear that Asela has found his niche and strength. The EP then rounds of with a self reflective "Good Night World" and pensive "Run". The EP closer "20:55", stated as his personal favorite off the EP, is his very first instrumental piece which is an inspired story in itself.
The "Paper Boy" EP is now officially out on itunes and other media!
