About the Artist

East Nashville, Tennessee indie folk/pop

Paul McDonald unveils the single “Bright Lights” from his debut solo album, to be released early 2015. McDonald gained notoriety after placing in the Top 10 of FOX’s American Idol. Since then he has appeared on shows such as Jay Leno, Good Morning America, Regis & Kelly, and a co-star role on the NBC’s Parenthood. Boasting a sound that incorporates a mix of indie, pop, and folk, Paul McDonald’s influences range from the melodic pop sensibilities of Ed Sheeran, to the earnest songwriting of Ryan Adams, and the vocal rasp and presence of a young Rod Stewart meets Adam Levine. “The syrupy, dramatic pop song “Bright Lights” is a sampling of what McDonald has in store” (Billboard)
