NEW ALBUM: Make a Man, the Unfinished Life of Paul Koors, available October, 2019
Paul's first record, Winter's Come and Gone, was a solo guitar and vocal record he recorded at Greg Howard's little home studio, and released in 2016. Paul Finished recording his second album just before he died. Its eleven country-inflected rock songs are inspired by the singer’s life, and deal with subjects like gratitude, self-doubt, and good old-fashioned heartbreak. Make a Man is a true "band" record with Paul on guitars, James McLaughlin on drums, Justin Esposito on violin, John D'earth on cornet on two tracks, and Greg Howard playing bass on the Chapman Stick and a little alto sax here and there. Once again, most of the music was recorded at Greg's home studio, with James laying down the drums at his studio, also in Charlottesville. Greg mixed the album and it will be released at the debut perofrmance of the Paul Koors Band on October 12 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
