Der aus Norfolk stammende Sänger, Songschreiber und Pianist Paul Millns zählt zu den besten Blues-Musikern Englands. Oft wurde er verglichen mit Künstlern wie Joe Cocker und Tom Waits. Aber Millns ist Millns, als Poet und Interpret eigener Songs eine Klasse für sich. Neben den ausgezeichneten Arrangements seiner musikalischen Fingerfertigkeit und seiner rauen markanten Stimme überzeugt Paul Millns sein Publikum mit intelligenten und einfühlsamen Texten.

„Der britische Soulpoet Paul Millns hat eine große Fangemeinde in Deutschland (…). Und wer einmal dabei war, kann sich der starken Sogwirkung seiner Musik kaum entziehen. Mit der Komplexität eines Randy Newman- oder Joni Mitchell-Songs etwa kann Millns ebenso viel anfangen wie mit der einfachen Struktur eines Blues-Songs. Dass er beides selbst meisterhaft in seinen Songs vereint, ist sicherlich auch der Schule als Blues-Pianist in Bands von Alexis Korner, Eric Burdon und Bert Jansch zu verdanken, die Millns seit den späten 60er-Jahren prägt.“ (MDR Kultur)

At the Halfmoon, Putney on 19th Nov

 Paul Millns with special guest Butch Coulter

“Superb singer, songwriter, pianist ” TIME OUT

The veteran songwriter and pianist PAUL MILLNS returns to the Half Moon for a night of grizzled smoky blues-soaked songs and a new album, with special guest BUTCH COULTER [Long John Baldry, Jeff Healey], on harmonica and guitar.

“If there was any justice in the musical world, he would be filling the biggest halls in the land’’ THE SCOTSMAN

Paul served his soul and blues apprenticeship as pianist for the likes of Alexis Korner and Eric Burdon in the 70’s. But now it is as a singer and songwriter that he has been recognised, especially in Europe. With a voice and style reminding critics of Randy Newman and Tom Waits, he recently released a highly acclaimed album of new songs, A LITTLE THUNDER; singers like Elkie Brooks and Bonnie Tyler have also recorded his songs. He is joined by one of the great masters of harmonica and wonderful guitarist Butch Coulter.

“His music defies categories, spanning earthy blues, love ballads, soul rock and jazz. He has one of the most expressive voices you will ever hear, and he uses it to bring out all the emotions he packs into some superb lyrics’’ MUSIC WEEK
