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. But after experiencing the range of songs & textures, there is no doubt the sound is completely original.
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.
In 2010 Paul Warner signed with Atlanta based management and entertainment company Curtain.Call.Entertainment and subsequently signed a licensing agreement with Urband & Lazar out of Los Angeles. Paul has played at Atlanta’s famous “Unplugged in the Park” at Park Tavern with such acts as, Angie Aparo (Cry) and select established artists from across the country.
His songs have also been featured on top Atlanta radio stations 99x and Dave FM as well as AM1690 The Voice of The Arts and currently being submitted for some of the top TV shows, movies and commercials across the country.
He is currently hard at work on his sophomore release entitled “Planetarium” and is scheduled to be released this fall. It’s familiar yet a departure from his debut release that has already gotten him nominated for a GA Music Award for ‘Best Rock Male’. Paul will be touring extensively for this release so keep checking back and find out when he’ll be in a town near you.
