Title - 'American Dream'
Artist - Paul Christian
For those not in the know, as you’ll soon come to know, and love, Paul Christian has the writing chops to make serious contributions into AAA, Heartland, Acoustic Rock, Contemporary Country, Americana, Roots, straight-ahead Rock ’n’ Roll ... oh, and he can even get all-up-in-your-Beatle-esque memory cells too!
At the center of Paul’s various genre leanings (besides his Breedlove Guitars) is a pure songwriter; a clear and convincing storyteller: a 100% dyed-in-the-wool natural talent just aching to become one of your favorites.
A Native son of Chicago, IL, Paul is self-taught musically, learning the ins-and-outs of a veritable myriad of instruments starting at age 13 and patterning his style after hos heroes Alex Lifeson of Rush and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin.
Each track on his just-released American Dream album represents a special milepost along Paul’s songwriting highway that will fill you with emotion.
Indeed, if you’re like us, you’ll fall in love with your head and your heart. Well, at least the ears on your head and your heart! We know he’ll win yours because he won ours.

This beautifully ambient Americana album opens with the lush title track 'American Dream,' and backs that up with the harder edged 'Accused,' the highly melodic guitar romp 'Never Hated Anybody,' the early-'70s rock of 'Sign of Life,' and then brings us the mid-'80s acoustic rock of 'Nothing Left,' and then the sing-along of 'Crazy Debbie' from the Bluebird Café.
Next up is the mid-tempo ballad 'Lola' which is followed by the sanguine melodies of both 'I Lost the War' and 'Little Lisa,' with the album rounding out with the low brow, earnest storytelling of both 'Angel of Flies' and the closing track, 'Name.'
