ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Paul started playing guitar at the age of 15, fueled by a love of Led Zeppelin and the opportunity to play guitar in a high school stage band. He quickly became obsessed by the instrument, practicing for many hours every day. After a few valuable lessons that taught some basic theory and modes, he discovered Randy Rhoads and Alex Lifeson, and began learning songs and solos by ear and joined up with some friends to start playing covers by Rush, Deep Purple, Ozzy Osbourne, Van Halen, and other early 80's hard rock acts. By the time Paul started college in 1983, Yngwie Malmsteen had caught his ear, and he began learning more exotic modes like harmonic minor and of course, focused on developing his speed. Paul was lucky enough to attend the University of Miami, and while not in the music program, his dorm room was surrounded by those of fantastic musicians, including one Andy Timmons. Paul played in a few different cover bands during this period, but eventually began focusing more on original music.

Fast forward 4 years, to a sagging post-college job market in South Florida and an opportunity to move to Los Angeles with longtime bandmate Richard Reid. Paul and Rich took the move, and eventually formed a band named Hard Luck. Constant rehearsals yielded demo tapes and some great gigs on the Strip, but the band hit its stride just in time to see the rise of grunge rock dispell any chances of getting signed. After contributing some guitar work to former bandmate Jerry Fiene's solo project, Paul gradually drifted away from playing guitar, always wishing he had been able to record a final product that showcased the skills his many years of playing had yielded.

Eventually, the home recording revolution came about, giving Paul an avenue to create something beyond a demo tape to have as a legacy of his playing. This inspired Paul to pick up the guitar and play off the rust while crafting new songs and honing his recording skills.

And this brings us to Losing Time - Paul's entirely self produced instrumental debut. Driven by passionate, fiery guitar work, the album features soaring melodies and driving rhythms, recalling the playing of Neal Schon, Steve Lukather, and Dan Huff. If you are a fan of guitar music, give it a listen, and you'll be hooked.

Best new artist I have heard this year!
I buy a lot of music and have bought about 100 new CD's this year. This is the best CD I have purchased this year. The songs are very well written, interesting and well peformed. The guitar playing is top notch. Even the mixing and production is excellant. From start to finish every song is a keeper. In fact they are all VERY good.

This is the best "guitar album" I have heard in a while. The playing reminds me of Joe Satriani, and how he plays a melodius part through the song that carries the tune the way vocals would. Combine this with excellant chops,and some progressive ideas and you have 5 minute long instrumentals that are NOT boring like some guitar tunes can be.

In fact, this CD get's better and better the more I listen too it, which is the "acid test" for me. To think that one man wrote, performed, recorded, mixed and produced the whole thing is amazing. It sounds totally professional. And this is his first try. Good luck topping this effort Paul, you set the bar pretty high. But I am sure anxious to hear you try!

Congratulations Paul, for an OUTSTANDING album.

Excellent guitar work! Every song is top notch!
This CD is fantastic. From the start of Cup a Joe to the last note of One Last Chance. The music is a breath of fresh air for anyone who loves guitar work. This is nothing short of brilliant. I would talk about one particular song, as would normally be the case with any other CD, but each song is equally deserving of high praise. Paul has a unique sense of feel for the music, blending styles from the heaviest of metal rhythms, classical piano and synth work, topped off with well thought out solo guitar work. If you're a fan of Satch, Vai, Malmsteen, Johnson, Petrucci, etc, don't let this CD pass you by. It wouldn't suprise me at all to see Paul Evans playing on the next G3 tour! Yes, it's THAT good.

Beautiful, driven, melodic guitar work
I first heard Cup o Joe when it was released prior to the completion of the CD. I have been dying for the completed product and I finally got it... and was not disappointed! From the soulful ballad of Waiting for You through the driving rock rhythms of all the rest, each song is loaded with phenomenal melodies that will keep you humming them long after the CD ends (which, by the way, is the only bad thing about Losing Time... it ends!). With most CDs these days you expect two or three good songs, and the rest just fluff. Definitely NOT the case here... This CD is packed with great tunes from start to finish. If you love instrumental guitar rock, this CD will not let you down!

One of the best finds from CDBaby so far.
I have at least 75 instrumental guitar cd's and this is the first one in my cd case. It RIPS from start to finish. Sounds of Eric Johnson, Satch and others make Paul Evans guitar raise the hairs on my neck and send chills though my entire body. Hope to here some more from him someday!
