Paul Fulker

Something Fresh and New

We all met through our local Recording Studio, "Heavy Rain Sound Production". "Let's get together and Jam sometime" was the phrase that started it. We did, and something simply clicked. No ego's, no pressure and no stress. So, Harry with his Guitar and Mike with his Mandolin, got together with Paul on the Bass Guitar. Harry had already written a song or two and between us we brought them to life, and did we have a laugh doing it. Gradually a distinct sound and style of our own began to emerge. Something Fresh and New, we can't quite put a finger on it, but it's us. So time went by and we recorded and released our first single "Never Be". And we're very proud of it. It's had many plays on "BBC Introducing" on BBC Radio Cumbria, Thanks to Tom Salmon. We've made several appearances locally playing our own material and it was very well received. More recently Dave has joined us in the percussion department which has greatly lifted our Live sound and given us more ideas. We recorded our second single "Holes" and BBC Radio Cumbria grabbed it and played it a week before it's release date..... Can't tell you how amazed and excited we are about this latest release. We've written more and can't quite decide which is the next to record and release, but nevertheless, an Album is on the way. Watch this space. :-D







What is music to you? What does it give you?

To Me, Music is a way to relax, unwind, be creative, express myself, lose myself, find myself and so much more. It has created a new way of thinking, a new circle of friends and countless opportunities to improve my playing skills. It also gives me the chance to leave my small stamp on the world, with the recorded work that will always be there, long after I turn to dust.....

What is your music dream?

I dream of the day I can give up work and earn a reasonable living from playing music, and maybe travel the world with it while I still can. These are dreams, right?

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Wow, There's a good one... Maybe if the world would stop being so self destructive and self consuming, it would begin the long slow healing process, but I kinda guess that aint gonna happen anytime soon as most of the world is too damn greedy. I really wish I could be more positive about it Sorry, just saying it how it is.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

So Many, But of all the fantastic chart songs and albums out there, I think Hawkwinds "Motorway City" Seems to keep the fire burning.... Why? Listen to it... you'll understand...

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Far too many to list, I think I'll have to keep coming back and adding to this list.... Motorhead, Hawkwind, Judas Priest, The Police, Status Quo, ACDC, ELO, Kate Bush, More to add........

What inspires you to make music?

The people around me and the need to get up and play live music.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Enjoy life as it's far too short..... Chase your dreams as best you can, as you never know, they may come true.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Every time, I absolutely brick it to start with, then once you get into it, I love every second, especially if you have a particularly receptive audience that are enjoying it as much as I do.... (That almost made sense.... lol)
