Combining thoughtful songwriting, dynamic stage performance, and unrivaled guitar virtuosity, PAUL WARNER has emerged as one of Atlanta’s most respected native sons. At first listen, there is a spacey familiarity to his songs, leaving the listener entranced in the haunting melodies and howling solos. In his short time in the business, Paul Warner has shared the stage with several diverse national acts including: The Blind Boys of Alabama, Collective Soul, Manchester Orchestra, Jimmy Gnecco (of Ours), Sonia Leigh, Rehab, and Wild Sweet Orange. In 2007, he won Creative Loafing’s Bandzilla contest, beating out nearly 100 other bands in the process. His songs have also been featured on top Atlanta radio stations, 99x and DaveFM, as well as AM1690 The Voice of The Arts. His debut solo album, Deadly Waterparks, and Paul Warner – Live at Smith’s CD/DVD were released April 15, 2010 and are available at www.paulwarner.tv.
