Raised on music and bands like Nirvana and The Beatles there's no wonder to his passion over precision songwriting technique. Intentionally this songwriter records with a grunge attitude, a little flat here and a little sharp there.

Why does PaulE write music?
It's his drug.
"Whenever I'm down or sad, I just grab a guitar and sing a melodic idea until a song is born and for some reason I feel lifted and fully elevated to function as a normal human being again. It's like the first feeling I got when I first heard Nirvana's music. Not sure why this happens but I'd rather write music than be addicted to certain pills."
"Live, love, laugh out loud"-Paul E
