We all know what is meant by the saying: "It comes from the heart!" DaPaul's 'Soulful Spirit' is yet another fine example of a well-crafted set of musical compositions which intimately touch on the content of the heart. The music in this debut album is of a consistently excellent quality and speaks highly of the calibre of the accompanying musicians who have contributed to its production. They all represent the finest the UK has to offer! From the gentle refrain of the opening track ‘She’s So Entertaining’ to the title track 'Soulful Spirit', this work is imbued with emotional sincerity. The UK has been blessed with singer/songwriters, Labi Siffre, Omar, the late David Lynden-Hall to name only three, who have succeeded in capturing our attention with the originality of their creative endeavour. We have another songwriter to add to the impressive roster. DaPaul speaks truly from the heart with 'Soulful Spirit'.
