Over the years, many major record labels have courted Paul Liddell, but he has chosen to remain independent and unsigned.
Paul was spotted in 2008 at a gig in London by 360 Degree Music and they were immediately impressed by his unpretentious delivery combined with his use of live sampling, guitar percussion and layered vocal harmonies and the genuine rapport he had with his audience. A dialogue was opened up that night, and over the next year a genuine friendship was established. It was agreed that they’d work together in partnership to bring Paul’s music to a wider audience.
It’s worth noting that Paul is not an artist that sits around waiting for things to happen. He has toured relentlessly around the UK for the last four years, has played gigs across the USA, has supported the likes of Florence And The Machine, Beth Rowley, Roses Kings Castles and Nerina Pallot to name but a few, and last month the Performing Rights Society announced that he was the busiest live musician in the UK, playing more UK gigs than any other artist.
Behind this backbone of live performance, Paul has been writing and recording new material and his most assured and polished set of songs to date were released in March 2010.
'Help Yourself Float' is a five track EP, recorded last Autumn in the north east of England, and in support of this release Paul will be touring the UK in support of this release.
