Paul McGilloway Is Taking Over 2019 With A Brand-New Album On The Way!

From the moment he received his very first candy-apple red Stratocaster guitar, every move that solo- artist Paul McGilloway has made has been a bold step forward in his music-career. Originally born in Ireland, he currently calls New York City home and has been an essential part of the local scene for over seventeen fantastic years. With a whole resume of incredible memories that include sharing stages with massive names in the industry like Bobby Rondinelli (Black Sabbath), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Moby, Glenn Tillbrook (Squeeze) in addition to key gigs, like being the bandleader at the iconic Arlene’s Live Rock ‘n’ Roll Karaoke Band as well as the infamous SNL after-parties in 2013/2014 and his time spent as the featured performer at the official launch of the Corvette Stingray – Paul has amassed a seriously impressive skillset over his time in the industry & the amazing experiences he’d been a part of. Everything he’s accomplished has all been a part of something bigger…perhaps something even unexplainable…something that’s been driving him towards this very moment in time…
Through powerful influences & inspiration provided by legendary players like Angus Young & Jimmy Page, Paul emulated his heroes & carved out his own signature-style in the process, drawing on their brilliant examples of proficiency, precision, and technique, to form his own identity & innovative sound. He’s become more than a proven talent when it comes to his musicianship, and synonymous with pure audio entertainment; he’s officially endorsed by Gibson Guitars & gigs relentlessly throughout the scene. Possessed by his passion, Paul McGilloway began to write and record a carefully crafted set of songs that would truly represent the artist he’s become & the journey he’s been on with his music over the years.
With the official release of his remarkable lead-single “A Hammer You Held Tight” in late November of 2018, Paul started a whole new chapter of his career to come. The first offering from his upcoming 2019 album, “A Hammer You Held Tight” revealed a highly unique & all-out immaculate Alt/Art-Rock sound that expertly combined dreamy & hauntingly atmospheric guitars with chillingly sweet vocal melodies. Complemented by the talents of John Conte on bass, Matt Snowden on the drums, and given a killer mix through the musical expertise of Malcolm Burn at the helm of the studio boards – “A Hammer You Held Tight” was also supported by a gritty & edgy video that perfectly suited the concept & sound of Paul’s extraordinary new single. Drifting through scattered visuals quite often shown to us through a distorted lens, the wild video for “A Hammer You Held Tight” showed McGilloway’s own bold perspective on life through the contrast onscreen; that even in the darkest of moments, there is always beauty to be found.
Taking on a spectacularly symphonic & serene direction to the sound of his second-single, Paul would go on to prove this theory correct with the release of “Hide In Light.” With its mellow disposition, this next offering from McGilloway’s upcoming album furthers his story in music, diving deep into a versatile & imaginative, soulful & shimmering new single that embraces mystery, creativity, & pure beauty, as one. The courageous way that Paul composes the structure of “Hide In Light” puts his sincere & signature style of songwriting in the spotlight & speakers for all to hear, revealing the slow-burning intensity of his thoughts, emotions, and feelings, in the smoldering melody & exploratory sounds drifting throughout. Radiantly beaming originality and organic design all his own, “Hide In Light” is every bit as subtle as epic.
Join Paul as he continues to make big moves with his music-career in 2019 with the release of several new singles/videos from the upcoming album. Scheduled to be available everywhere online at the end of the year & rumored to contain seven incredible new songs that showcase the very best of what McGilloway has been working on tirelessly in behind the scenes, he’s held nothing back in this artistic pursuit & put his soul into every note played & sung. Fully determined & ready to unleash a compelling & charismatic set of material designed to make an impact on the hearts & minds of all who listen, Paul is undeniably making his best music to-date & stoked to share it with each and every one of you out there.
