Album Notes
Take a microbiologist, construction worker, drummer dude, industrial engineer, and a psychologist and what do you get? Would you believe a butt kicking', groovin', acoustic bluegrass Rock band? Hell yeah!

With the release of their first CD, Pauls Apartment debuts what Dan Corcoran describes in the Impact Weekly as the "epitome of the homegrown jam session". Whether you're listening to one of their cover tunes or original songs, you'll soon find yourself movin' and groovin' along with them. And there's even more fun if you catch their act live where the band cuts loose with whirling 10- and 12- minute jams sessions.

Donna Lynn Johnson, lead vocalist and guitarist (and food safety gal by day), pulled the group together after playing with them at a local weekly open jam session in Yellow Springs, Ohio. They started out playing local gigs in the summer of 2001, and branched out into playing larger venues such as the pagan festival in Athens this past summer. With the cold winter month's they headed indoors to the warmth of a studio where they laid down tracks for this CD. Since then they have been busy writing numerous originals that come alive when they play out and playing out is what they love best!!!

Describing the Parts

The Food Safety Microbiologist-
Donna Lynn Johnson, Lead Vocals and guitarist started playing and singing in her native California when she was 12. She claims to have honed her vocal styling while working as a talc miner in Death Valley, California. "The acoustics in those drifts were great!" After graduating from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo her day job led here to Yellow Springs, Ohio and the "fellas" as she endearingly calls them.

The Construction Worker-
Brian Kelley, Banjo'ist Extrordinnare always does it well and has been since he can remember. In the beginning he always did it alone, but now he can't help but do it in front of everybody. Donna Lynn always says, "Here! Here! To a job well done!"

The Drummer Dude-
Greg "Duke" Dewey, Drummer and knew he would be one since he was five (according to his mom). At the age of 17 he moved to California to be a rock star, it worked....... Over 35 LPs later back to Yellow Springs he went and met a woman named Donna ... Ahhhhh, and immediately made music.

The Industrial Engineer-
Neil Thompson, Bass Master and well, frankly he plays anything he can get his hands on. Weaned in Centerville, Ohio with a hula popper in his mouth he started playing music and we hooked and mounted him immediately!

The Psychologist-
Tim Callahan, Vocalist and Guitarist is also lovingly know as Tim "Dark Doctor" Callahan. He doesn't really believe in reality so you know he doesn't really mean it when he says, "He didn't Mean to Kill Her" *grin*

The Roofer-
Oliver Simons, Mando (mandolin) Dude has also been know to venture to far off islands in search of the finest snake pudding. He has also been rumored to be one of the finest roofers about and if he roofs a tenth as good as he plays his mandolin...... he's a damm good roofer.

Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives and Pauls Apartment invites you to invent with them!

Fun, very talented, and good new grass.
A very enjoyable at times quirky cd from a very talented new grass band.


Dark BlueGrass old and new
This CD highlights this band's ability to inject New-Grass with their own unique depth, darkness, and perception. Ralph Stanley and Bill Monroe haunted, cautioned, and uplifted us. Pauls Apartment accepts the permission and challenge to do the same, but with contemporary honesty and without sentimality. Vocally and lyrically, the interplay between Donna Jean's innocence and Tim Callahan's wizened exposure of his dangerous and damaged alter-ego rival the greatest duets of all music. Their personas are epic archetypes that chill the soul, and Callahan's serrated guitarwork matches the rest of him. But the rest of the band is where the real story lies: their technical precision keeps the other two grounded; their synchronicity provide the foundation, setting, realism, and soul to inspire the whole. There may or may not be future CDs from this band, but someday you will be proud to say you listened to it way back when...
