Reviews and Press Releases
We first met Paul Alexander Low way back in August of 2020 upon the release of his debut single “Feel Your Heart Come Alive“. That song introduced a veteran Americana singer-songwriter who ditched the corporate world to pursue his musical dreams full time.
Since then, the prolific musician has released seven singles, an EP, and his well-received full-length debut album Sunshine After the Rain. His songs have been featured on the BBC and other radio stations around the world. Now, after a twelve month hiatus, Paul is back with new music planned well into next year. He is releasing each of the thirteen tracks from his next album as a single on the first Monday of each month.
Singer-songwriter Paul Alexander Low is passionate about Americana, but his music is extremely diverse, often exploring many styles and genres with no shackles. The artist has recently announced the release of his upcoming single, "It’ll Be Alright.” This new track captures his range of influences, blending the roots of folk music with genres such as rock and more. With powerful lyrics, insightful storytelling, and unforgettable melodies, “It’ll Be Alright” serves as a great introduction to Paul’s vision and versatility.

Debut Album Review by FATEA MAGAZINE
by Mike Davies
Having forsaken the well-paid but soul-destroying drudgery of the corporate world for a poorly paid but soul-enriching life in music, born in Wiltshire and now living in Hampshire, Low follows a string of well-received singles and an EP with his debut album.
Things kick off in a Celtic-hued walking beat restrained anthemic style with a hope for a 'Better Life', one in which everyone lives in mutual tolerance and support one another, followed by the stabbing keys intro to the driving drum pattern of perhaps the thematic counterpoint feelings of 'Alien Race', written about his time at university in Birmingham and feeling a stranger in a strange land, another big melody with a soaring chorus built around a folk-pop sensibility that reminded me of a less blustery Alarm.
