Growing Media Coverage, Multiple Singles, Weekly Vlog and Music Videos Begin to Roll Out, as Singer Paul Loren Readies ‘Betwixt' Album for Fall 2021

Fast Placement on Spotify's Indie Music Playlist

Elvis Era Sun-Studio Instrumentation, A Billy Joel-Esque Ear for Pathos and Melody, and a Rat Pack Vibe

Jazziz Exclusively Premieres "Tender" New Ballad, ‘Nighttime (Is The Loneliest Time)'

Brooklyn-based singer Paul Loren is a youthful old-school entertainer with a twinkle in his eye - it'd be easy to imagine him being introduced by Dick Clark or Johnny Carson, back in the day.

He's got a Rat Pack retro style but he sings about modern themes - His sound evokes Elvis-era Sun Studio instrumentation with a Billy Joel vibe for melody and pathos. Loren's upcoming album ‘Betwixt' will be released this Fall, preceded by a series of singles and videos which began rolling out in late April. In a recent Exclusive Song Premiere, Jazziz Magazine praised Loren's ballad 'Nighttime (Is The Loneliest Time)' as a "tender" new track, and first single ‘No Room For Yesterday' is off to a hot start on Spotify's Indie Music Playlist. Over the course of his career, Loren has amassed over 750,000 cumulative streams, and expects to see the number grow as music from ‘Betwixt' is released in the months ahead.

Loren's charm and wit are on display during his weekly vlog about the making of the album - the first entries are here:

May 2021 By Matt Micucci
Paul Loren, "Nighttime (Is the Loneliest Time)" [Song premiere]
Singer/songwriter Paul Loren evokes smoky jazz club atmospheres and early-Sun Studios Elvis records with his new, tender ballad "Nighttime (Is the Loneliest Time)," featuring Oscar Albis on guitar. Loren explains that he wrote the song one-night last spring as he was "strumming ‘In the Wee Small Hours' and was in that emotional headspace." "Nighttime (Is the Loneliest Time)" is included on his upcoming album, Betwixt is due out this fall and a companion album, Between, will be released in 2022.

Read a lengthy Q&A with Loren about the making of ‘Betwixt', here:

A recent interview on the 94Twenty Podcast:

Highlights abound on ‘Betwixt' (set for release on Five & Dime Records). From ‘All I Want Is Less', with its guitar/drum Elvis Sun Studio instrumentation and witty lyrics, to the retro pop vibe and memorable chorus of ‘How it Should Feel'; from the old fashioned, catchy and hip first single ‘No Room For Yesterday' to ‘Marlena', which evokes Billy Joel-meets-Broadway; ‘Better Than You Treated Me' hints towards Country and ‘Nighttime (Is The Loneliest Time') is a dreamy old-school love song.

‘Betwixt' draws inspiration from Loren's recent months of heartbreak, anxiety and anger - emotions many of us have experienced during these turbulent times.

He puts the album in the context of our unthinkable year of Covid-19. Working on the new music "helped to drown out the constant sirens from ambulances I'd hear through my window every few minutes. The songs were coping mechanisms that kept my spirit afloat and helped me block out the pain for a few hours a day."

Multiple performance videos will be released in the months ahead for ‘Betwixt', and a companion album ‘Between' will be released in 2022 as well, with details tbd. For now, get a sense of Loren's charisma, wry humor and performance chops via this sketch on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon':

More about Paul Loren:
Paul Loren is a singer, songwriter, producer and consummate entertainer. A native New Yorker, Paul was raised on the rich legacy of soul, classic pop, and the Great American Songbook and in those musical idioms he feels most at home. Taking elements from early R&B, jazz and Brill Building pop, he crafts his music with an ear towards timelessness. "I started singing at 3 years old along with the little 45rpm records my mom would play and started playing piano at 4 years old. The voices I remember most and identify with are Ray Charles, Frankie Valli, Sam Cooke, Sinatra, Aretha, Otis, and Tony Bennett. Growing up in New York, Billy Joel was also a big influence." Paul completed his first headline tour in 2019, also having performed in the past as a support artist for: The Temptations, as part of Stamford's Summer Concert Series "Wednesday Night Live", Brendan James, American Idol Winner Taylor Hicks, David Bromberg, and sold out Joe's Pub at the Public in NYC multiple times. Paul was also selected by Jennifer Lopez to perform at her Birthday Gala in Las Vegas, showcased at The SoHo House NYC, was a featured artist at the AAA Radio Convention in Boulder Colorado, and shared the stage with Paul Shaffer, Queen Latifah, and Christie Brinkley at Target's launch event for New York Fashion Week. Paul's appearance on "The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon" showcased his talents for millions of viewers; with a winning song and viral video to boot. In addition, Paul landed his first television sync recently on NBC's "Mysteries of Laura", performed on the Nationally Syndicated Radio Show America Weekend with Ed Kalegi, has partnered with The Ryan Seacrest Foundation, showcased at the headquarters of the world-renowned Leo Burnett Ad in Chicago, and had the unique honor of performing at the legendary STAX Museum in Memphis Tennessee. While in Memphis, Paul had the rare opportunity to record in the world-renowned Sun Studio in the same room as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and so many other pioneers of Rock and Roll. Paul was also a finalist in the "Unsigned Only" singer songwriter competition for 2018. His single "All By Myself" was supported by radio stations Lighting100 in Nashville, SiriusXM's The Pulse, WCOO Charleston and KPND Spokane, among others. His follow up, "I Know A Place" premiered on Huffington Post and received over 200K views in its first week. Paul's single "We'll Be Together Again," written and recorded at home during the early spring of 2020, is a beacon of hope for those affected by the uncertainty of a tumultuous year. All of the proceeds from the song have been sent to a COVID-19 relief charity. During the pandemic's first wave, Paul's weekly online music show - "The Leisure Lounge"- was livestreamed from his home in NYC and ran for 15 consecutive weeks, broadcasting to thousands of viewers around the world.
