Paul Maged
Album: Light Years Away (2017) === To be released on October 10th!

“Light Years Away” marks singer-songwriter Paul Maged’s follow up to his critically successful sophomore album, “Diamonds & Demons”. Light Years Away is the first in a trilogy of EP’s that Maged plans to release in succession.
Maged calls the new music “a natural progression in my songwriting exploration with a more ambitious and eclectic sound.” Light Years Away is produced by Multi-Platinum Producer Sean Gill of The Passengerz. The album will be released on October 10th, 2017 and available on all online music outlets including iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and more. CD’s can be purchased through CD Baby. The first single will be the title track “Light Years Away” which will be accompanied by a video.
Diamonds & Demons was Maged consciously wanting to make a rock n roll record. It was named #1 album of the year by Monoblogue music and had positive write-ups in The Examiner, Popdose & Nashville Music Guide to name a few. Popdose wrote, “Paul Maged proves rock ‘n’ roll isn’t dead; it just needed a reason to get out of bed in the morning.” Early in 2015 Maged began writing new music. He said, “After ‘D&D’ I really wanted to free myself from inhibitions and let the music release itself in whatever shape and form it takes and not change it consciously to what I think it should be.” Resisting the shackles of writing songs that would play big live, Maged challenged himself to write more varied and mature songs both lyrically and musically. The result became more than a full album’s worth of songs spanning many different genres. Producer Sean Gill calls it “Maged Music, its own entity”. Gill as well changed his approach on the production side, choosing to use more instrumentation and layers, creating a more lavish soundscape that would bring out different flavors in the music.
Acknowledging the direction the music industry has taken and how music is currently disseminated, Gill persuaded Maged to break the new music into a trilogy of conceptual EP’s to be released just a few months apart.
Light Years Away includes six plus songs and marks the first of the trilogy. The opening track “PC Police” could be a cut off Diamonds & Demons, a pop punk, socially conscious song. But where “Diamonds & Demons” expressed more rage in its approach, PC Police revels in a sarcastic and satirical look at the hypersensitivity of political correctness that permeates today’s society. “Moment of Strength” is a soulful piece of music Maged calls “Billy Joel meets The Killers meet Michael Jackson.” “Light Years Away” is a song about human kind’s evolution within the universe and the consequences of its actions but is also an ode to loved ones we share our journey with. “Ashley Jane” is a pop tune full of imagery with a twinge of Mumford & Sons and is a song that Maged fully dreamed which includes a guest appearance by harp player Cabbage Pomeranz on harmonica. “Half Moon” is a dark, haunting and atmospheric song. “Like a Stone” is Maged’s tribute to Chris Cornell who was a big influence on Maged.
His acoustic cover of Cornell & Audioslave’s “Like a Stone” has Maged playing all instruments and co-producing with Gill. Light Years Away marks Maged’s new vision and direction of exploring various musical landscapes while using his music emotionally and lyrically in a personally cathartic way.
Paul Maged wrote and performed stand up and sketch comedy for over a decade straight out of high school. He appeared in background roles on Saturday Night Live as well as lead and supporting roles in independent films.
An important part of Maged’s life, Paul wished to somehow tie his comedy past into this album. Light Years Away is accompanied by a video to the title track in which Maged parodies his comedy days; playing animated versions of himself as comedy characters he played during his decade plus in comedy. His “comedy band” includes Stoner Moonshine on bass guitar, Italian Chef/Mafioso Vinny Tortellini on lead guitar and legendary Porn Star Randy Phella on drums. The video showcases the lighter side to Paul as his comedy band plays live in space.
Other videos for this album include PC Police and Like a Stone.

Colch 

Multi-instrumentalist/singer, playing alternative rock/rock music. Released a six-track EP last year called 'The Plight of Life' and have released a further two songs since then. Busy finalising three new songs to record in the studio in August 2017.
A song (Doctor can You Help Me) I recorded recently, not yet released, but looking to releasing it later in the year.
I wanted to try and give a strong sense of emotion that corresponded with the lyrics.
which I hope I have done.
