Paul DeHaven

Friday Night - 8:00pm to 8:45pm @ Elliot's Martini Bar | 21+

Lofi Indie songwriter
Paul has been a fixture of the thriving Denver music scene for over 10 years, well-respected for his time crafting licks and tunes as a founding member of Paper Bird and Eye & the Arrow.
 
His new album, "King of Gold", due out in spring of 2018, digs deep into the heart of his generation, searching for value and meaning in a world that promised so much and seems to have offered so little.  His songwriting reaches new heights as these somewhat quirky, drum-machine-and-electric-guitar driven tracks ooze indie-coolness and more than a hint of country-rock twang.
 
The songs from Paul DeHaven's first solo album, the EP "What Are You Looking For That is Here Only", are built on tasteful and forward guitar playing, his unique songwriting, and the  belief that just because it's a solo record, that doesn't mean it has to be boring.  Culled from the last two years of writing for his other projects, the songs on this album have a distinct and lively feel.  "It's not a singer-songwriter record, even though I do both of those things.  I think of myself as much as a guitarist and producer as I do a songwriter."  The songs range from straight ahead straight ahead folk-rock ("Side of the Road"), fuzzed out dub ("Live Your Life"), to instrumental and found sound soothers ("Postcoital Lullaby").
