Album Notes
p a u l t i e r n a n
Paul Tiernan: the man who in 2008 had a song (How to say goodbye) in Hollywood teen cult movie ‘Nick
and Norah’s Infinite playlist’, who once played with the legendary Donovan, who has 7 solo albums released,
who has played his trusty mandola with Nick Harper, Boo Hewerdine, Robyn Hitchcock, Mark Geary, Maria
Doyle Kennedy, Sinead Lohan, Katell Keineg and Glen Hansard to name but a few. He also recently sang and
played the same trusty mandola on Morcheeba’s latest album ‘Blood like lemonade’ (released June 2010). Last
year ‘How to say goodbye’ was in the English, Australian and Mexican top 30 Itunes singer-songwriter charts.
Before we forget, also a member of cult Irish band ‘Interference’ who’s song of beauty and wonder ‘Gold’
featured in Oscar winning Irish film ‘Once’ and is now a huge broadway hit.
Paul’s 6th CD ‘painkillers’ was released last September 2011. He is at present working
on his 7th album. Hot Press recently described the new cd as ‘powerful stuff’ and
‘breathtakingly beautiful’!
Discovered sometime back in the last century by Paul McGuiness, U2s manager and
now living in southwest France. Writes bittersweet love songs and is one of the primary
players in the ‘sad folk’ movement. Has produced/engineered and designed the artwork
for all 6 solo cds......a veritable one man band.
Rock ‘N Folk (one of France’s major music papers) recently said “he is without doubt one of the best
European singer/songwriters, a great guitarist as well, equipped with a magic voice, a perfect mixture
of silk and grit. The first song, ‘Breakfast in bed’ is a gem, a dream impregnated with bittersweet
nostalgia that never leaves us after hearing it.”
CD Baby have hailed Paul as “a true songsmith in the tradition of Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake and Paul
Simon” while also intoning of the album “Earthquakes is as fine an album as you’ll hear this or any other
Here’s another quote from CD Baby (the world’s biggest online distributor of independent cd’s) : ‘Belle is,
without a doubt, one of the most memorable male folk albums to come through our doors in years.’
