Album Notes
PAUL CUSICK, British multi-instrumentalist, started his solo music career in 2009 with the release of his début album "Focal Point". Previously CUSICK had spent years as the lead guitarist in several bands, but in 2008 his new year's resolution was to step out from behind his guitar and concentrate on his own song writing and production skills.

Within four months CUSICK had received record offers from two separate progressive rock labels. This interest gave CUSICK the confidence to continue writing and recording his debut album, whilst still maintaining his career as a Chartered Civil Engineer.

CUSICK's guitar style has been compared Steve HACKETT, David GILMOUR, Steve ROTHERY and Steven WILSON. His songs draw upon the sounds and audio landscapes created by bands such as PINK FLOYD, Peter GABRIEL, PORCUPINE TREE, CHROMA KEY and NINE INCH NAILS. However, the long instrumental pieces that are sometimes associated with the progressive rock genre have been replaced by catchy vocal melody lines akin to those evoked by more mainstream rock artists such as COLDPLAY and U2.

Currently there is no band. CUSICK sang and played all the instruments on "Focal Point" himself, but was joined in the studio by friend Alex 'The Groove Monster' CROMARTY on drums. Andy EDWARDS (FROST*, IQ) also made an appearance as guest drummer on the track 'Touch'.

Focal Point is getting rave reviews where ever it is heard. (See Links Section)

The CD includes a 12 page booklet that contains bespoke artwork for each song. Artwork can be previewed on Paul's Official Website.

The first full consignment of Focal Point CDs will be shipped from CD Baby on the 20th July 2009. This is an exclusive import from the UK. Pre-Order yours now and avoid disappointment.
