Album Notes
Pauls Apartment releases their second CD; "Utilities Included" This band based out of Yellow Springs, Ohio has the grasp on new Americana music. Their energy can be felt when listening to these new tunes. It varies from grooving call and response songs like, "Baby" to their "bolero'ish-bluegrass" song "Sic".

Former Country Joe and The Fish drummer Greg Dewey pulses the rhythm with Donna Lynn's harmonious sultry vocals that makes you want to sing and dance! With the release of their first CD in 2002, Pauls Apartment debuted what Dan Corcoran of the Impact Weekly described 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." SWRecords.Net said, "Down home, upbeat and bluesy, Pauls Apartment has a Les Claypool sense of humor and a Carl Perkins rockabilly groove." Rev. Cool of WYSO's Around the Fringe show simply describes them as, "Psychotic Bluegrass, Yea!"

In May of 2003 Pauls Apartment released their second CD, Utilities Included. This CD captures their down to earth, funny and rootsie songwriting that appeals to all ages. Utilities Included has 12 originals that the band created over the past year and simply put makes you want to shake it!!. But don't take our word for it though!! Buy one and check it out for yourself!

The Origins of the Band
In 2001 Donna Lynn Johnson brought the group together after meeting them at a local weekly open jam session in Yellow Springs, Ohio. "I was playing out around town solo and finally thought, HEY! what if I asked a few of the fellas to join me from jam night!?, that would be so much better." There she found Tim, Brian, Neil and John. They played small gigs around Yellow Springs and decided they had put something together they couldn't, shouldn't stop.

One night, soon thereafter, they all went to Canal Street Tavern to watch a few bands. During that evening at one point Tim's wife, Kelly' stood up, looked at all of them and said, "Hey, look! there's Pauls Apartment". (The jam night was often held at a good friend's apartment, Paul). Pauls Apartment was born. almost...All they needed now was a drummer

During Donna Lynn's first summer in Yellow Springs she was asked to join in on a Jam downtown for the fourth of July. The drummer there was Greg Dewey and by the end of the day he said to Donna Lynn, "If you ever get a band together, I want to be your drummer". Well she remembered that, knew the time was right, hunted him down and asked him if he was still up for it. He said yes! And Pauls Apartment was complete

Paisley BlueGrass
This album is a great demonstration of the bridge between traditional grass and the jam band aesthetic, but Pauls Apartment brings a new approach. Instead of merely adding 'grass to rock and roll, or rockin' out the grass, they start fresh. They go back into grass and find the authentic dark moments, the uncertainty, & the epic magnitude of everyday occurences imbued with bigger meaning. They allow this darkness to ferment and fester on its own, and emerge as a jam that's neither retro or a tribute. Ralph Stanley, Joshua Redman, and Trey Anastasio could listen to this album together and find agremeent.

incredible bluegrass funk
as a city slicker this is usually not the music i listen to, but when i heard the musicianship and fun vocals i had to buy it. every song is my favorite, but if i had to pick a few i enjoy whiskey, 12:31, kitch and xtian. kitch has a kind of jazz blue grass sound that reminds me at times of early ramsey lewis trio stuff. after playing this three times the first day i got a hankering to move to the country, buy an old house with a big porch with a rocker, a spitoon and a couple of hound dogs. don't miss this cd!!!


totally awesome
i was sitting here at frehway when i found a folder with some pics in it,and a web site,so i decided to veture to it,when i found these songs. as i listened to them i found it was totally awesome and it had to be some of the best blue grass and county sounds that i have heard in a good while----SO GOOD JOB AND KEEP UP THE GREAT SOUNDS----
